Depends on the site and how the base soils are.

These are from Friday

I think its so cool that you get to build walls like that on an everyday basis. I think i have seen maybe 2 or 3 in my area and thats it. Most people around here go with blocks or concrete. Anyways, awesome work!

after building a little wall today im glad I don't have to do that everyday! you have the right equipment to get it done. also nicer rocks to work with too! All mine were blasted with flat edges, round edges, all sorts of shapes and sizes. where do your rocks come from? looks like the rock has tumbled a lot to be so smooth.

A rotating grapple helps a ton vs. using a thumb of or set of forks on a Bobcat.

I love rocks with hard edges. I also use rocks of all shapes and sizes.

Our rocks come out of sand pits, farmers fields, straight out of clay whatever. They are 98% of the time glacial granite boulders. Very rarely do we use something else... then its limestone or dresser trap rock.

After you do it everyday you learn where to use which rocks in what places to not work yourself into a hard spot.
