Gabions are a combo of wire and rocks. These two materials are often used separately for versatile DIY projects. But when combined, they can also beautify your outdoors. Gabion walls are the most common result of such combos and today we want to give you some tips of how to build such walls in your outdoors.
Gabion walls are mainly galvanized steel baskets filled with rocks. They can differ in size and appearance and you can place such baskets anywhere you like. For example, if you are missing some fence in your yard, you can make one out of gabion to add more privacy over there. And it will for sure look good, because the natural look of the rocks fits perfectly with the landscape. Or besides fences, you can also use gabion walls for garden edging, fire pits, benches or other outdoor furniture pieces etc.
Patterned Gabion Walls
As we have already said above, gabions are galvanized baskets filled with rocks. And you can either fill them with the same type of rocks, or make a combo of several of them. So, when combining different ones, you will get a patterned gabion wall that will for sure become a focal point of your outdoor space.
Gabion walls can also cook good in combo with wood or glass. So, instead of a regular gabion wall for your yard, you can make it half wood and half gabion and thus make it look more unique. You can also add one such wall on your patio.
Gabion Water Feature
And another great way to decorate your yard with gabion is to make some such water features. The rocks and the water make great combo and thus look great with the beautiful landscape. Here are several such ideas.
