Always consider the stability of the wall you're constructing and whether internal reinforcing may be required. If the gabion is used for retaining you may need to ensure there is proper anchoring into the slope to prevent collapse, for example geogrids and earth anchors are often used. Check with an engineer for advice as soil type and other factors must be considered.
For free standing walls you may wish to reinforce the wall to a concrete foundation. See attachment for an example of how to do this.
