  • Do you want extra protection that can stabilize and prevent soil erosion at your home or commercial structure?
  • Do you need to build a retaining wall?
  • Are you interested in using environmentally-friendly, Sustainable materials?
  • Are you interested in using long-lasting and hard-wearing building materials?
  • Do you want to add inexpensive decorative accents and additional “curb appeal” to your property?


Gabions are decorative galvanized wire containers that are filled with hard materials such as decorative rocks or glass chunks.  These designer baskets have tremendous curb appeal, and can be used in a variety of ways to offer great protection to homes and commercial structures (e.g., when used as sloped paving, construction weirs, and retaining walls).

Interestingly, gabions were used for centuries to create wartime barricades to defend against enemy invasion.  Today, Weinstein Construction offers this innovative and popular solution as protection for your home against Mother Nature’s harsh elements.  Gabions are especially useful as a cost-effective way of fighting soil erosion or protecting structures against high-velocity water flow, as gabions disperse water pressure through openings in the rocks, which then creates a natural drainage runoff.

And did we also mention this type of retaining wall is actually more affordable than many others?   This is because gabion baskets are easy and inexpensive to transport and build! Take a look at the photos on this page, which show a Weinstein Construction crew receive a shipment of decorative rocks, wash them, then hand-place them into easily-prepared wire containers.  Our crews select only the best-looking rocks, sort them into various sizes, and then fit them perfectly into the baskets. The end result is spectacular!

Give Weinstein Construction’s experts a call today to discuss the benefits of gabion baskets, and let us demonstrate to you why using gabions is such an attractive and cost-effective solution!

What are Gabion baskets?2022-01-18T07:42:14-08:00

Gabion baskets are galvanized wire containers that are filled with decorative rocks or glass chunks.  These ornamental baskets have tremendous curb appeal and can be used in a variety of ways to protect homes and commercial structures.  Weinstein Construction offers gabion baskets as an innovative and cost-effective solution to fight soil erosion or protect against high-velocity water flow (gabions disperse water pressure through openings in the rocks).

Why are these structures called “Gabion”?2022-01-18T07:42:14-08:00

The word “Gabion” is derived from the ancient Italian word, “Gabbione” which means a big cage.  Originally, such cages were made from wicker and used as military fortifications, but now they are made out of a strong, welded, galvanized steel wire, that can hold its shape when filled with heavy rocks.

Are gabion baskets expensive to build?2022-01-18T07:42:14-08:00

No, gabion baskets are actually very affordable to construct, as they are made of economical materials that are also inexpensive to transport and build on-site.  Give the professionals at Weinstein Construction a call to discover all the wonderful aspects of gabion baskets!

Do I need a permit to build a gabion wall, or gabion baskets?2024-01-11T14:32:40-08:00

Possibly, gabion walls and baskets may require a permit.  For example, if your gabion wall goes over a certain height, you may need a permit for such work.  Weinstein Construction can also partner with civil engineering firms near you to provide you with exceptional quality engineering plans for your project if necessary. The professionals at Weinstein Construction are gabion basket/wall experts, and have undertaken many such jobs, and we will be pleased to advise you on this subject and put together a cost-effective proposal to fit your needs and budget – give us a call!


Jack Dunbar Weinstein Construction Review 2

Weinstein Construction redid my foundation and retaining wall and I’m very happy with the work!

Mr. Allen
Donald Borg Weinstein Construction Review

We had our basement retrofitted. Very courteous to us, very attentive. I was very impressed with the people who came to do the job. They were polite, well dressed, and really seemed to know what they were doing. We feel a lot safer now than we would have otherwise.

Donald Borg

We had used Weinstein to earthquake retrofit our house. First, my intention was to do it myself, but we got a very nice sales rep over and he went through the whole procedure and by putting a thought into I concluded that it was not worth it for me to spend 14 days under the house. They came out, a top professional crew, they did it in a day, and we really loved what they did.

Yorkin Schwar

We are pleased with the results. The people were on time, they were neat, clean, and even the “big boss” was very nice and accommodating, so we’re happy with the services.

Tom and Judy Fogle

I was very happy. Very clean job. Very satisfied, and I recommend it to everybody.

Eddie Levin

We had our house retrofitted. Immediately we noticed the stability of it, even when we walked the house. Now it’s so much better and it’s stabilized, we’re very confident. It went very well and we’re very pleased.
