Most Popular Post

Blog stats are fascinating – it’s fun to see all the different countries from which people find their way to our site to read about our little projects; and it’s really interesting to see which subjects receive the most attention.

At the top of the ranking by a wide margin – in fact receiving more than twice as many views as the second most popular post – is … the gabion bench. Apparently there is a huge interest in building with gabions, because that post is consistently the most popular almost every single day.

It’s been 2 years now since we built that bench and I wrote about it on this blog. Given the interest, I think I owe you an update on how this project has fared. I’m happy to report that it’s been a great success: the structure has held up very well; it still looks great; and, most importantly, we use it all the time.

    Very nice, I’m going to be using your technique this weekend actually!!! I am having gabion retainer walls put in around what will be our new patio, and we are going to add gabion bench seating as well. I wasn’t sure the best way to mount the wood on top so really greatful for your amazing quick pic’s. You should put out a youtube video for one of these as there are currently none!!!
