To build a gabion wall you will need a galvanized or stainless steel grid box and stones . This box can be any way you want. For example, if you want to have a bench in your garden, it is best to have it in the shape of a cube, but if what you need is to build a wall, then the ideal is for it to be rectangular in shape.

Once you have everything, you simply have to put the stones inside the box . It is important that they are all more or less the same size, as this will be much more resistant.

In addition to some uses that we have already mentioned, the gabion wall can be used for these other things :

  • Prevent landslide and erosion.
  • Like benches or chairs.
  • Delimit the garden, or to have the different areas of it separated.

Having a gabion wall is a very advisable option. It is relatively inexpensive and very easy to do . Also, even if it’s just stones and a steel box, you can use your creativity to build a much more interesting wall.

So, do you dare to build one?
