Gabions are constructions which are commonly used for fast wall building and especially for strengthening slopes as well as for even terrains.
What are gabions?
A gabion is a metal mesh construction. It can be square, rectangular or sphere shaped, as well as in the shape of an animal or another decorative form. The construction is filled with stones.
Advantages of using gabions
Gabions are especially useful when it is necessary to build a wall without the need for waiting for a permit to build it or to use concrete. These clever constructions can be used separately and then interconnected together for durability and stability.
Gabions are better for terraced terrains than normal walls because they allow for the safe flow of water and groundwater.
Filling the gabions with gneiss form Ivaylovgrad
By filling the gabions with gneiss from Valmarg Stone you can easily build walls or other decorative structures and combine it with the natural beauty of the gneiss stones we offer. We can provide you with gneiss in two nuances: silver-grey and golden-beige.
One of the options for filling gabions is with the paving slabs available at 35-340 cm and a free length and a thickness of 3-5 cm. The other and less expensive option is to use the bones and gneiss cuttings which have a thickness of 1-1.5cm.
Gabions are perfect solutions for walls – both decorative and for fencing
Choose rectangular gabions if you want to build a fence or a decorative wall in your backyard. They should be interconnected for added stability after they are filled with the stones of your choice. You can use non-standard forms for making a decorative wall, with differently sized gabions or other variations, depending on your taste and preferences.
Multifunctional gabions in your garden
Apart from using them as decorative walls or for added privacy against onlookers, the gabions can be used as bases for placing flower pots, for installing solar lamps, tents and for other purposes depending on your needs and preferences.
Using gabions for forming the sides of a stairway
