I think the work looks great, but god are those blocks godawful looking. Go get an EP HENRY catalog or something with nicer looking blocks next time and plant some trees/flowers/shrubs to break that thing up. It really looks like good workmanship though.

The homeowner had us do the wall and they did the plant installation. Thanks for the compliment.

I hate those curved face blocks. I think they look friggin ridiculous. That being said, your workmanship looks very good and aside from the block itself, its a very nice wall.

I would have to agree with everyone else. The workmanship is awesome. I think you could have come up with a better design though.

Godawful looking block, but the installation looks kick-azz!! Did you shoot the base with a transit ot laser level?

Once again, I see no outlets for drain tile! The installation looks good, but.........

You dig everything out with the Dingo?

Drain tile ran under wall to a tile system that feeds a pond in front of the house. No, we didnt dig that out with dingo.:usflag:

Looks Great!! Is there any room for small plants that you could put into the blocks to soften it up.

Well, I'll go against the grain...I think those blocks look terrible but they actually fit in with the scape perfectly when you look at it. A lot of other, more commonly used colours would look like a sore thumb with that house. Whoever picked the blocks had a vision for the longer term, in a few years you wont see the wall as such and it will all fit together well. JMHO

Thats a massive wall. I just came back from a Versa-Lok class so I have to ask... how many layers of Geo-grid? Is a railing not needed? but what if they put a patio in? How far is the house from the wall? It looks to be about 10 feet, did the engineer say if that was going to put any extra load on the wall?
Sorry for the questions, but you know how it is when you get back from training, your all juiced up.
So you used the Dingo for moving the block and an excavator for the wall?
