A couple of pics of a Keystone Wall and planting ring I just finished. Let me know what you think.

I personally think the block is too large for the application, but thats just my taste. Also looks like there is a sag in the second pic of the driveway, might just be the camera. Not too crazy about the caps in the driveway pic either. Again, JMO.

I thought so to, but the block was as they requested. There is no sag, the slope of the driveway make it look that way in all of the pics I took, but we you stand in front of it you can see it is perfect. I have only built about 3 of these things so I am pretty happy with it and the client was extremely satisfied.

Looks great and level.....and the most important thing is that the Home Owner is happy.....and that you learn as you go...

i think it looks terrible. not your work, but the wall itself. those planters are ridiculous and even though your work is fine, they look like homewoner specials. I hate that block, to me it looks cheap and cr@ppy. Again, I am not busting on your craftsmanship, just the choice of materials.

I'll never understand it, but alot of people LOVE that look. Nice work though.

Gotta watch the stones in the winter time. A snow blower will hurl those stones and break windows. I'd never put loose stones anywhere out in the open like that.
