Enyone ever use treated 2 x 8s as a base for the 12" pavestone retaing walls? I saw this beauty shop having it done this way. Looks kind of slap upish in a way. looks straight although they arent getting it real level. I figure its low buck as they may not afford a lot. Interesting idea if it dont rot or sink in spots or something

I do a lot of Pavestone walls each year and I have never heard of or even considered building a wall that way. You are right. It will eventually rot away and start to sag within a year. You should talk to the business owners and tell them that when that wall collapses they can hire you to do it the right way.
