To Do Explanation

Step 1 – Identify location

Use spray paint, stones or other materials to mark the location where you plan to construct your wall.

Step 2 – Dig

Dig 10cm or until the ground is firm.  Gabion walls lower than 1m are often placed directly on the ground but it will be more stable if placed on firm ground such as clay instead of the topsoil.

Step 3 – Geotextile

Place a layer of geotextile or weed mat on the soil to prevent weeds from growing up and through your gabions.

Step 4 – Add Basecourse

Add a 10cm layer of gravel or basecourse on top of the geotextile.

Step 5 – Compact Gravel


Walk and stomp on the gravel to make it compact.
Optional – Concrete Foundation

Most low-level gabion walls do not require a foundation but if you have a large amount of groundwater or the soil is weak, it may be needed.

Step 6 – Unfold the Baskets


Unfold and lift up the sides of the baskets.

Step 7 – Join the Cages


Assemble and attach the baskets together with the helicals included in the kit.

Step 8 – Fill with Stone


Fill the gabions with your choice of stone.

Step 9 – Close Lids



Fold the lids down and close your baskets with the helicals provided in the kit.

Step 10 – Finished Project


Your freestanding gabion wall is now ready!
