Here is some pics from a few walls we just completed. We tore out a lot of old ties and replaced with allen block. This job was such a pleasure working, it was in a county west of me about 50 mile drive and elevation is around 3000 yield 10-15 degree cooler. I hated to leave this job and come back to the heat. I have some before and after pics.

Fence post. I dont want the fence guy messing up my geo-grid so i just set them. He can just set his post inside and fill with concrete.

I use allen block, that is how you change the wall with the grade. They are not finished on the end so you drop a allen block lite which is half the height of a regular block then set a cap on it.

Yea with my 185 bobcat. No, they were there the one on the rear deck notice they actually built the deck around it. It was a pain in the ass to run a block up against also. Where this job was there a lot of rocks this size.
