The material is very simple in its construction. A strong and fairly spacious mesh is assembled from metal gratings, into which stones are uniformly laid. It is worthwhile to understand that it's impossible to just drop the cobblestones out of the bag: firstly, they will not be distributed right inside the cell, creating voids, and secondly, given the weight of natural stone through a couple of bags, exhausted, even the most hardy men will lose their hands.
After the cell is filled, it is closed and fixed.
Any stone can be used to fill the nets. Use, mainly, granite or limestone, but in fact this is due to the availability and massiveness of such a stone. In fact, there are no restrictions on the choice of filler for the gabion.
And as for the metal mesh, then it's worth to be careful. Choose only a strong galvanized or stainless steel that will not spoil the appearance of your structure by corrosi
The build process really does not present any complexity, if you know exactly what form a finished structure should get. So:
Please note! On the wire mesh and wire, you can save money if you mount gabions of simple shapes exactly on top of each other. Then the lid of the lower can serve as the bottom of the upper.
To see in detail how the gabion is made and stacked, it is possible on the video in the next tab.
