Angular rock is the best gabion fill as it provides a good interlock and therefore less deformation of the face occurs. When using rounded river rock as gabion fill, it is recommended that you use the heavier 3/16th gabion baskets, which are less likely to deform under load. Also 3/16th wire is the preferred choice where an uniform architectural look is required.
