Gabion Cubes and Boxes
The gabion cubes and boxes from the Urban Kubez range have convenient predetermined sizes suitable for just about any gabion project.
From small decorative features to large scale gabion mega structures the length, depth and height are equal measure.
The smallest gabion cubes at 300x300x300mm can be utlised around the home, courtyard or verandah as garden feature, pot plant stand, low set feature wall etc.
Whilst the largest gabion cubes measure 1000x1000x1000mm is best suited for retaining walls or stand alone walls and borders. These can be stacked and tiered for the largest of landscape, commercial developments, erosion control and civil works.
The cube profile offers great stability in earth stabilisation.
The sturdy weld mesh construction of the Urban Kubez gabion cube range are built to last meeting Australian standards for quality.
Gabion Cubes Assembly
The Urban Kubez gabions are easily assembled as DIY kits shipping to any residential address in Australia or alternatively from our Queensland depot we can arrange materials in bulk loads for on-site delivery & convenience.
All our gabion kits come complete with 6 panels, spiral wires and internal support braces.
Gabion Cubes Advantages
A gabion wall is commonly known as a gravity wall meaning the internal weight of the structure is forced back down into the earth giving incredible retaining advantages.
Effectively a gabion wall utilises its own weight to resist lateral earth pressures.
Weld mesh gabion such us Urban Kubez maintain form, stability and strength when installed individually or linked together.
Gabion walls will not experience shifting, cracking, splitting or any major deformation.
Another key advantage with gabion walls is their “free flow” drainage system. By allowing water to flow through the gabion and internal rock material, gabion retaining walls will not experience hydro-static pressures (water build up behind the structure which is common in other retaining systems.

Gabion Retaining Wall Installation Tips
- Prepare level and solid ground, for best results compact road base is recommended to ensure the foundations are solid and the gabion sits flat. This step will also assist project aesthetics with accurate and straight panels.
- For gabion retaining wall situations utilise geofabric behind the gabion to ensure soil does not wash through the wall. Drainage gravel behind the wall is also a great option particularly for large walls 1m and above.
- Assemble gabions and link end to end. One end panel can be made redundant if desired without affecting the integrity of the structure.
- Place bracing wires internally and close the hook end using pliers. Braces keep the panels tight and straight otherwise the panels will bulge outward when filling with stone.
- Hand packing stone into the tightly will ensure the gabion is solid, safe and aesthetically impressive. Use angular type stone such as granite or basalt
- Fill the gabions gradually and progress to include the next gabion rather than completing each one individually.
- Retaining walls over 1m in height may require local council approval and potentially engineering certificate.
