  Gabion baskets are wire fabric containers, uniformly partitioned, of variable size, interconnected with other similar containers and filled with stone at the site of use, to form flexible, permeable, monolithic structures such as retaining walls, sea walls, channel linings, revetments and weirs for earth retention.

  Gabion baskets are available in a variety of different sizes. They come in 1/2 or 1 meter high, and 2, 3, or 4 meters long. There are several types and colors of rock 

available from common river type round rock, to multi-colored light and dark fractured rock.

   Flexibilty is an important beneft of any gabion structure. Since the baskets are constructed of galvanized mesh wire and filled with rock, the flexibility of a gabion structure allows it to withstand pressure without deforming, cracking or breaking as in the case of concrete and other materials. There are very few limits when it comes to the construction of a gabion wall. Walls can be constructed following grade along a road, tapered on top to follow changing elevation or terraced creating stunning flower gardens that can flow over the wall. 

   Soil erosion is an ever present problem and gabions baskets have proved to be a lasting solution around the world. The earliest known use of gabion-type structures was for bank protection along the Nile River during the era of the Pharaoh. The lasting appeal of gabions lies in their inherent flexibility. Efficiency in gabion basket structures, rather than decreasing with age, actually increases. During early periods of use, silt and vegetation will collect with the rock fill to form a naturally permanent structure and may be used to remove solid pollutants or "floatables" from the water.

  Gabion baskets are made of hexagonal galvanized or PVC coated double-twisted mild steel wire.
