Gabions

Price Level: $$$$$$

How we build them

Gabions are large metal cages filled with rock. These walls work well where the structural requirements are high (you might have seen them along roads).

These walls drain really well but they are very labour intensive to build as the cages are positioned and then gradually filled with rock.

Their cost is due to the sheer volume of rock that is used to fill the cages and the labour that is involved.

ADVANTAGES

  • Can be built high (with engineering)
  • Require only minimal drainage

DISADVANTAGES

  • Very labour-intensive
  • Require lots of space to build (due to the size of the cages)
  • Slow to build
