The point is - people want a wall for a reason. walls are expensive. If they're spending money on a wall - they're doing it for a reason with a goal in mind.
If a wall fails, keep in mind that they usually have backfill behind that wall that did not exist before it was built. So, if you have to rebuild it, you're faced with excavating all that fill, and finding somewhere to stock pile it until you're ready to backfill again. Not pretty. Could bankrupt a contractor.
If a contractor (Drakeslayer) can't be professional enough to follow proper protocol - then they're no better than a Craigslist Special.
Haha! Funniest read of the day!
