I have some erosion control I'm trying to deal with on my property. Someone suggessted gabion baskets. I have to admit I'd never heard of a gabion basket. They look intriguing. Maybe some of you use them.? Here's an example:

Have seen them used in south east Iowa along the interstates. They are labor intensive to build and take a special sorted for size stone.

Old chain link fence works. Cylinder shape upright 2 rows nested together is how Ive done it for beach erosion.

They like to use them here where there is a good bridge trapping spot they want to ruin.

I've nevet seen 1 around here, but I think I can see how these could benefit some landowners.

wonder how rusty the chain link is in 20 years? wonder how long before it begins to disintegrate? probably never in southern Utah but I bit 30 years in Florida there would not be any left.

they have their place, but we're replacing many of those structures with poured concrete abutments.

I too am curious how the basket wire holds up over the years.

we have some that are well over 20 years old. but most need to be replaced. the stones will settle over time, traffic tends to increase...

they served their purpose (providing cheap access and buying time).
