Gabion baskets refer to a wire mesh box, also known as a container or basket, filled with assorted types of rocks to retain soil and/or prevent erosion. These aesthetically pleasing retaining systems are often used along river courses, where high erosion is an issue, as well as in large, flat areas where soil loss is a problem. Aesthetically pleasing and environmentally suited to most retaining requirements, Gabion walls are increasingly popular and are often seen at upmarket residential estates and wine estates.
