A Builder’s Guide for Using Gabions
Building with gabions is a straightforward process, but it’s essential to know the basic design and construction principles before using gabions. Before choosing the gabion type, it’s important to know the purpose of the gabions because different gabions are used for different reasons. Before beginning the gabion installation process, you must place a level well compacted foundation that is free of vegetation or other natural elements, and when placing fill material in gabions, you should shift the fill so that flat edges of stone are against the face and to avoid any voids. Take time to learn about building with gabions so you can ensure they are used properly.
