A wall of stone-filled gabions doesn’t only have to be built by architects – do it yourself in three simple steps, as Ashley demonstrates.
• gabions with stones
• 40mm screw plugs
• 8mm washers
• 50mm screws
• electric drill
1 Pack the gabions in an overlapping pattern (like bricks). The gabions are installed one by one. Mark the points for the screws with a pencil at each of the gabion’s four corners.
2 Drill four holes and tap in the plugs.
3 Screw the gabion in with the screws and washers so that the washers hold down the corners.
4 The gabion will stay in place securely, thanks to the washers.
