I don't know any websites, but if you go to the place that sells retaining wall blocks they should have brochures that explain exactly how to install them.

Check out these
Ideal block
Allen Block
Rhino
Belgard
Nicolock

All of these companies have info & Contractor's Installing guides.
As well as your local Stone or Landscaping/Nursery should have info.
Practice in your own yard if possible & when the time is right to do your 1st job, just take your time. Remember, your 1st few jobs your not going to make a million $$$, but your going to learn the right & wrong ways of doing this work. Best of All!!! It beats Mowing any day.
Good Luck:blob2:

Allen Block has a very detailed brochure for installation, How many blocks you'll need, how much material, etc. Check them out.
