SOIL EROSION CONTROL with GABIONS

How does Gabions Prevent Soil Erosion ?

Gabions are wire-mesh structures filled with rocks of different sizes, built on areas prone to soil erosion.
Gabions work by providing a strong support for otherwise weak areas of earth.
Loose soil fills the spaces between the rocks and collects in front of the gabion,
preventing more soil from being washed away.
