good looking wall. does your drain pipe exit anywhere else besides the 2 spots next to the stairs?

Yes it exits up around the corner but it has a downward slope to the stairs.

There was a pool in the middle of that wall also. I charge 45.00 a face foot. Steps are extra. No grid. Wall was only 2.5' high. Tuff pins.

On the r/h side of the steps, I would have made a cut on the third course and the caps to keep the bond looking a little better.

I've let stuff like that slide in the past (sometimes cuz I didn't catch it in time), but I try to be better about it now.

Neversatisfied, did you have a problem with grooves from the block mold showing on the corners?

If you look at the third course of the r/h side, see how it only overlaps the block above and below by a couple inches? So, if those are 18" blocks, there should be right around 9" of block sitting on the two blocks below any given block.

Greenmonster, I think the issue you are speaking of starts at the drain. it looks like a whole block went in on both sides of the pipe rather than a cut block matching the bond and that threw the rest of it off.

that being said, it looks great and should last a looooonnnnnnggggg time regardless of the bond being a bit off.

yup, the full block next to the drain is the origin of being "off-bond"
