Good looking work. A couple of things we would do on a project like this.

Rockface the wall units that step down.
Pavers with a 1/2 inch gap or larger get cut-in.

Peace,

No gaps in these pavers or very few if any...this was a budget project for a customer that had a big problem with drainage issues from a next door neighbor....i agreed to do the job because another nieghbor also signed on for work...plus labor pricing was also an issue.....no time to be perfect on this one...but its damn close....this is about 5 full days of work with one last day tomorrow...

Jeff

ill get the truck pics up tomorrow maybe, The lettering guy had mispelled a few words, believe it or not, and i didnt even realize it and was driving it around for about two weeks before i had time to get back to him or he could get it fixed......anyways i just got it fixed so maybe tomorrow, but its all dirty right now

Check that, you are right. I meant the wall units on the last step.

That sounds a little cheap no? 300sqft wall with caps, and filled in... plus the other walls and steps?

I was able to sell the guy on block apposed to the Tie wall I was talking about. 75'x5' (375 sqft) for $8K. Though it included a rip out of a rotten wall that took all of 1/2hr, just sounds a little cheap.

Either way, it's coming out good. ;)
