Construction in Thailand Is building in Thailand as bad as it seems? Can properties really be built and fitted out to European standards? Would you like to Build your own house in Phuket, or a swimming pool in Bangkok? Solar water heating in Pattaya? Or maybe you want to build a resort or guesthouse on Koh Samui? If you want to build a luxury house in Thailand then this is the forum for you.

Gabion Wall

Thinking of building a gabion retaining wall around my land thinking it might be a cheaper and stronger and nicer option then concrete.

MY only real unknown in the price of rocks any one got any ideas on how much rock would cost

There are quite a few companies supplying decent cages here in Thailand, so the wirework isn't a problem and decent prices too, but the stone itself is quite expensive I think. I don't know what stone you'd be looking for, but probably granite. I was quoted for granite boulders for landscaping, the price was 5 baht a kilo (delivered). Can't find any costs online , but I'd expect broken granite would probably be a bit cheaper.

You'd probably still have to arrange the exterior visible facing rock to some degree (the central core can be rough as you like), so this too would add on extra costs.

there is a quarry in surat thani, we got a truck load of granite for @ 1000b per ton.
the other option is river stones.

Considering the sg of rock is around 2.5 that works out to 2500B cubic meter.

I hope they are well galvanized. Steel doesn't do too well exposed here, even galvanized.

I guess it depends on the height and the number of tie-backs but the standard precast slabs they use here for moohbahn construction are not expensive. It doesn't have to be poured concrete with forms etc. Aesthetics? Well...

Think global. go local.

A quick Google search comes up with these two websites. Both mention delivery to Chachoengsao, which is where I believe you are. Both mention large rocks - "dam rocks" (หินเขื่อน).

Quote:
Stone Dam (supergroup 3 inches or more) as large boulders ranging in size from 3 inches to 15 inches until a durable barrier for banks. Do barrage or used in applications that require a large rock.

Both websites give the same price of 170 baht per ton or 255 baht per cubic (meter I guess).

Do you know the name in Thai for the cages or any suppliers that I can contact

Planing to use "dam rocks" (หินเขื่อน). which neverna mentioned it doesnt come with fines. From all the reading i have done you don't want fines in gabion wall

Exactly. How are you going to keep them out?

The last item on your list you need to purchase.

My brother is having his house in UK remodeled.
Knocking the kitchen dining room into one to make it more modern and up-to-date to add value.
I asked him about his Ha-ha. He said all done.
After reading this post I asked "Gabion wall".
He said yes 65m long.
As soon as my niece sends me a picture...

I get it now you are talking about geo fabric I found one supplier and worse case was thinking shade cloth would do the trick.
If you know some suppliers of geo fabric please share

Very good and congratulations!

After spending so much time and money on a beautiful wall you donít want the embankment/fill behind the wall to slowly seep out (due to water).

I donít know if they are open any longer but you might want to contact the company below,Ö..

PRODUCT GEOTEXTILES - Premier Lining Interplas Co., Ltd.

GEOTEXTILES (แผ่นใยสังเคราะห์)

Just a little note when laying the fabric,........overlap each section by at least 1 foot (donít place it end to end)

Good luck with the wall.

Does 850 baht seem fair for a 2 x 1 x 1 gabion cage

And 8000 baht for 4 x 100 meter roll of non woven geotextile
