Retention Strategy

A retaining wall consisting of gabions can be used to retain the land following the removal of a building. The gabions, which come as empty cages, can be filled with demolition debris such as brick, stone, and concrete. Features like seating and drainage can be integrated into the gabion wall in order to encourage occupation and regulate environmental repercussions. These hillside locations allow for integrated seating areas to have expansive views. The implementation of a retention strategy also creates potential for terraced gardens or lawns when appropriate.
