Building a Gabion Wall

Building a Gabion Wall

From Start to Finish

Part of the landscaping efforts at our Basalt Residence Project include the installation of a Gabion Wall. Some wire, a whole pile of rocks, and our skilled labor result in a very cool looking wall that your neighbors likely will not have. 


What is a Gabion Wall?

To create a Gabion Wall, cages are wired together into a shape and then filled in with rocks (or other materials). The particular wall we are installing at the Basalt Residence Project features a basket with a statue niche wired in.
