Gabions are an earth retention technique in which gravity retaining walls are formed using rectangular, interconnected, stone-filled wire baskets. The corrosion-resistant baskets are placed and filled on site by hand. The baskets are stacked on one another and are generally stepped back to construct a tiered or sloped wall. Gabion walls are effective in protecting slopes from erosion. The technique has been used to construct temporary or permanent retaining walls and channel linings.
This technique is predominately provided by our sister company Craig Olden, Inc. and is available throughout North America. Contact your local Hayward Baker office for more information.
