FREE STANDING WALLS & FENCES    


Our low profile gabion baskets can be easily transformed into free standing walls 

Just take a standard 6' x 3' x 1.5' or 12' x 3' x 1.5' gabion basket and turn it on end to produce a
 6' or 12' long x 1.5' wide x 3' high wall 

Adding another course will produce a wall 6' high  
Adding additional baskets in line will produce a long continuous wall




NOTE: The gabion in this configuration requires internal posts embedded in concrete to stabilize the structure
