RETAINING WALLS

Gabion Retaining Walls 

Traditional wire Gabions are an ideal solution for soil erosion problems and are perfect for retaining purposes. Gabions are strong, yet flexible, accommodating ground movement. Gabion retaining walls are also permeable, eliminating water pressure building up behind the wall. They can be installed quickly and cost effectively as no footing or curing is required. They are extremely durable and by using Maccaferri Gabion baskets, they have a life span over 100 years. Prospect Contractors install Gabion retaining walls in any large or small, civil, commercial and residential projects.
Prospect Contractors also install Rockweld Retaining Walls in areas that are suitable. The rigid, galvanised steel mesh panels are laced together and stabilised with posts into the ground. They create a slimmer profile and are used for more aesthetic purposes in areas that don’t require as much stabilisation. They are not recommended in areas that have water flow.
