If you need river bank and flood protection, to prevent you land eroding away, gabions are a low cost method of flood protection. Building a flood control wall with gabions keeps the erosion protection systems cost down.

Below are some examples of river bank erosion protection using gabions.

When your gabion walls are being used as erosion control, a civil engineer experienced in flood control and erosion prevention, should be consulted. Gabions are a proven method of halting river bank erosion, for both large rivers and small streams that are prone to flooding. Any river erosion system needs to be designed to cope with the expected peak river flood volumes, as this is when most damage to river banks and their erosion protection measures occurs. Flood events are often described as 1 in 100yr floods or 1 in 50yrs floods, and any river bank protection system needs to be able to cope with these flood events.

The design of all river bank protection systems needs to consider, the soil profile, soil type, (clay, gravel or sand), Expected peak river flow, and expected maximum river channel scour depth. Gabion walls are heavy, and therefore able to resist the river during flood, different methods of flood control are needed depending on the site conditions. Site access, to the river makes it possible to build the gabion erosion barriers on site, material and labour costs, all influence the final gabion wall cost. Larger gabions can be used around bridge abutments and bridge piers, gabions are able to use cheaper stones thereby reducing the river bank protection costs.

Home owners, weekend builders, and diy specialists can build most small to medium sized gabion erosion control walls depending on size over several weekends. For larger gabion erosion control walls, you can get a quotes from, local landscapers, small earthworks contractors and specialist flood protection contractors, who have both the machinery and experience to build the larger gabion walls quickly for you. Experienced contractors may also assist with the flood control design and have design ideas, based on local knowledge and experience to ensure your river erosion control project is a success.
