Historically, gabions have been used for hundreds of years, with Leonardo da Vinci being said to have used a type of gabion for the foundations of the San Marco Castle in Milan, Italy. Gabions were traditionally used as foundations and retaining walls to prevent erosion, as well as for military operations.

Functionally, they can be used as a retaining wall in a sloped yard, offering exceptional drainage and soil reinforcement or they can be used as a fence, providing great sound protection, privacy, and wind protection.

Slightly less common, gabions can also be found indoors. Resorts like the Alila Cha-Am Resort and homes around the world are using gabions to create statement walls that function as both a real wall and a decorative art piece.
