Gabion retaining walls are formed using a series of rectangular steel mesh baskets. Depending on the quality of finish required either woven or welded mesh with various thickness and corrosion protection can be used.

The cost of constructing gabion walls is largely dictated by the cost of the 6G gabion infill stone, that can vary widely depending on where the project is located.

Design and build gabion wall projects can be undertaken across the country.

Gabion baskets can also be used as architectural features and are widely used as cladding for buildings, and to form free-standing visual and acoustic barriers.
