The smaller Garden Gabion can be used at home for terracing and smaller Gabion retaining walls, or even internal feature/decorative walls, or raised garden beds as illustrated below. Generally the height of wall you require is 500 – 1000mm in height and this can easily be constructed using the 500 x 500 (width x height) basket. We offer hexagonal woven or weldedmesh for this purpose. Examples of both basket mesh types are shown below.
All Gabion mesh is Class A Galvanised mild tensile steel, to provide flexibility, and supplied packed flat for erection and filling on site. The small Gabion can be filled with glass bottles, rock, timber logs, building rubble, roof tiles or whatever you have available or would like to decorate the basket with, including filling with locally available topsoil. This soil filled basket would then require the Coir fiber blanket internally along all sides to prevent the loss of soil, lifespan of coir is 3-4years depending on the local climate. If filled with rock, the basket design life typically is 20-40 years, as long as not placed into an extremely corrosive environment. The PVC coated woven mesh is more suited to corrosive environments.
