Structures, made of stone, limited to rectangular or spherical forms by galvanized wire mesh are called gabions. They can be made in variety of sizes and shapes, filled with stones, rocks or other materials.
Planting of perennial flowers, grasses or small shrubs in the joints between the stones is possible.
The stones may have built in different elements such as decorative bricks, decorative concrete blocks and wooden beams. Except as retaining walls, gabions can be used with a decorative purpose in the further development of playgrounds, water effects, sound proof walls, faces, columns, fences, benches, tables, stools and more.
