A gabion fence is a great way to get an industrial chic look for your home. Plus, they have some great advantages – they’re durable, low-maintenance, and can even help with noise reduction. Here’s how to build one yourself:

  1. Choose which rocks you want to use as building materials. You’ll need about 18 square feet of rocks per linear foot of fence, so plan accordingly.
  2. Lay out the rocks in alternating sizes, side by side but not overlapping them (unless you want it staggered). Make sure that there are no gaps between the two rows of rocks. If there are any gaps, then fill them in with smaller rocks. Continue laying out the larger and smaller rocks until you reach where you want the top row to be. Add more smaller rocks if necessary, then place two bigger stones on either end at each end of this row.
  3. Use wire mesh to secure the rock wall together at various points along its length. There should be at least three strands of wire running vertically down the entire length of the wall.
  4. Put something heavy over the wires to compress it and keep everything in place, such as bricks or pieces of wood.
  5. Fill in any remaining gaps with small rocks.
  6. Use mortar or concrete to stabilize exposed edges that might come loose from constant movement or exposure to moisture.
  7. Seal all surfaces of the wall, especially those areas that will contact soil.
