So we're building this Cornerstone retaining wall. I mean, yeah we've build alotta walls, but this one is far-out different than anything I've ever seen,

As you can see in the picture, there is a pretty roll of grid that we're going to use for reinforcement (I can't believe they make that stuff so pretty only to bury it in the ground). I've never worked with grid before, but I've read alot about it on this forum.

I need help installing the grid.


Thanks In Advance.

HAhahahahahahahahhaha, just roll it out long ways on top of the block and make sure you use your hand tamp when you back fill. If you have any corners make sure to use a handy dandy 90 degree laser!

You're supposed to roll it out? :confused:

I always bury the full rolls behind the block.

Skip the tamper all together, with that high tech pretty orange grind you don't even need to back fill your wall!!

If you have to ask, then you shouldnt be doing it......but i think you should spot weld it to the block. Better bonding, but i have also used Duct Tape.....

Use your concrete adhesive, glue it to the blocks and roll it back into the hill.

that looks a little too much like orange safety fencing to me. nice try.
geo grid does not get rolled along the length of the wall. it gets rolled from the face of the wall back into the soil it helps stabalize. cut and start again. but you know this Im sure, as well as the need to have an engineer so that a reinforced wall failure wont fall on YOUR shoulders.

Definately make sure to leave some of the pretty grid stick out on the face of the block, that way you can enjoy it alittle more!

I'm actually thinking of using geo-grid for a snow fence, wonder if it would work?

we used some fabric style almost like a cargo net for soil stabilization . i imagine that would work good as snow fence :weightlifter:

VACATION!? ah yes. I almost forgot that word. I desperately need one of those. whos paying?
seriously, I take vacation every year. its VERY important to me. this is the first year since I can remember that i havent. I decided to try a new gig this year and I've put everything I have into it. theres just no time for vacation. or money. i just hope it pays off
