Design quidelines for gabion erosion control
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 more 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.
