Very nice work, but I've gotta chuckle at the barns, sheds, windmill, grain bins, and old John Deere (looks like a 4010?) in the back background. Seems like it would be more at home in the 'burbs.
I like it, though.

Here is some more. If any of you would like more just ask. I did most of this project on my own. I had three other guys help lay pavers but other than that it was only my back that was hurtin! The wall wasn't very fun. Belgard needs to tighten up their tolerances in their molds. I spent way to many hours grinding blocks to keep things level.

Hope you all enjoy the pics!

300 man hours... found an old cistern that ate up some time and grinding the blocks ate up alot of time! But overall it went well!

I really like it and how it flows. Looks like you are getting the same type of work I have been getting the last few years with all the farmers wanting to spruce up their yards.

I love the way the boulders "protude " through the stone work.

Did the vertical blocks fit flat and plumb to the base blocks or was there alot of grinding to get them 90* to the base? And how solid does that wall actually feel after being glued up
