We Call Them Gabions and They Are Astonishingly Successful
Well Mankind, bless it’s little lecherous heart, has been building walls as long as it developed the mental acuity to balance one rock on another. Then not much happened for a thousand years or so. Those who became a little more skilled we chose to call masons and then they formed a society, built a temple and wall-building fell as dead of creative thought as most better known religious societies.
As a side comment, hedgehogs have existed for fifteen million years and never formed a society or built a temple. Lovely little critters, hedgehogs.
So, what’s that got to do with gabions?
Not much, but stay with me, I thought it was kind of a cool lead-in.
Gabions are simply another way to hold a bunch of rocks together without worrying about a skill-set. Just open up the stainless-steel cage, fill it with rubble and close it up again. One thing to remember, don’t fill them and then try to move ‘em around. It’s a build-in-place skill-set.
Why are you bothering me with all this?
