yes, they have been called that. The gabion wall is custom constructed with sheets of steel wire and filled with rock. It retains the soil and plants on the uppers side of the wall.

These gabions were custom built with welded wire mesh panels. We then filled the cages with rock to create the gabion retaining wall.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Barriers, especially internal barriers, in contemporary garden design don't have to be impermeable. There are many times when we want to delineate an area without blocking the view through to the rest of the garden or landscape.Grasses with tall flowering spikes are ideal for creating this type of soft barrier.
