Lady-boy mud wrestling aside, isn’t the load spreading idea with cellular 
confinement systems based on passing point loads e.g. stilettos, rather than 
static loads already spread in a wire basket?
The CCS solution isn’t a one-stop-shop. The details are key, as suggested by 
soil type
ground conditions
water table
root distribution
size of gabion

The baskets are generally about 0.5m wide and 1-2m long.
In any case the fill is typically about 1400-1700kgs per m3 depending on 
material used.
