Very seldom can a failed wall be repaired. There is only one way to build a retaining wall and that is the right way from the start.

Also, the cost of block for a wall accounts for the least percentage of a wall build.

So little distance between upper and lower wall, I'm afraid it may fail the second time around. Get out while you can. Tell them start from scratch, and price them a nice armourstone wall or something. Its old as well, bet its close to 20 yrs, just by looking at the cap decay and mold on it.
