L X W for the face of the wall, but the capstones, should I measure the top surface of the wall, say its a foot in width by 40 ft long.. would you add that to the total sq. ft. of the wall's face? It takes time and much effort to get that nice flat top, using irregular stone. Thanks for any tips!

Unit pricing is a bad bad thing to do.

Do a search and you'll find all sorts of information from me on why NOT to unit price.
