Once you get a basic understanding, there are many guys on here that do alot of retaining walls. Stuvecorp is someone who comes to mind as he does quite a few walls and has helped me in the past.

BTW- what do you mean by an open faced retaining wall? I haven't heard that terminology around my area before.

The customer asked for a open faced retaining wall. A little confused on that term also. Usualy around here we just dig a footer pour the concrete and lay the block, not use fancy terms.
