Hello, we do not recommend constructing gabion cages using our welded wire fence.
Bought this fence specifically to keep our large dog (95lbs) from going under the deck. Easily fastened it with a pneumatic stapler. We can see where he’s tested the fence with his muddy snout and paws, unsuccessfully. We’re good to go.
I would use cable ties rather than staples
A dado groove is pretty wide. If you want to insert It into a wood frame, I would cut a single groove with a circular saw. Drill holes on the side and inset nails or screws to prevent fencing from sliding out

For a short period of time, yes. However, this is not intended for that type of application and would likely rust within a few years
Hello Salsero, thank you for your question. Are you in a location where the river may freeze? When you say comes into contact, does that mean it is in the river continuously, or periodically? Is there any debris that my be floating in the river? All these will impact life expectancy of this fence. Generally speaking, this fence is PVC coated Galvanized Steel, so it should provide many years of useful life. Regards, your Everbilt support team.
I guess it may...but not enough to matter
Hello Piston1, thank you for your question. I would recommend that you select Poultry Netting. It is available in 4'x50' lengths in 1" or 2" mesh. The 1" would be your best bet and it will be much easier to roll out and manipulate than the welded wire. Regards, your Everbilt support team.
When we bought ours we used redwood pre treated posts to put up our fence, I thought they sold black posts but they are the like the skinny green ones and wasn't what we wanted to use. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful
