good luck on wall man! throw 3 layers of 3.0 geogrid 6' back.... its a start.
Not sure where you got the 5 grand from?
I pay an engineer $800 to $1200 for the whole sha-bang. Soil testing. And wall design. Have never paid more. But I realize it may be slightly higher for others. but not 5 grand. Most wall designs are copy and paste. Some deeper base courses, some longer and more frequent grid.
This guy needs help, lets try to keep what we type accurate.
