Hello fellow Hardscapers/Landscapers! I was working near this house in Northern, NJ and just happened to see this today so I pulled out the ol' camera phone to take some pics! This wall fell over the weekend. It was installed less than a year ago too. (I know that because I was one of the contractors that looked at the work last year. I do know who did it and lets just say it was indeed a "professional" landscape company rather than a homeowner...ha!)

I figured that you guys might enjoy this one. And if you are in Sussex County, NJ and want to take a weekend drive- it is worth it! Drop me a line and I will tell you where it is. my pics don't give enough justice.

Jon

Ha Ha Mrusk you are indeed correct on the location- I knew you would know where that one was! Check it out- it is a mess.

Jon
P.s. Mrusk- it is more likely that Aliens would take over NJ than one of your walls falling!:laugh:

Well becuase i'm not there but even my blind eyes can see that there is no geo fabric, or drainage pipe. hydraulic pressure (that's water) exceeded his wall building capailities. Only rich people can afford to do a job twice, do it right the first time!
