I personally think the block is too large for the application, but thats just my taste. Also looks like there is a sag in the second pic of the driveway, might just be the camera. Not too crazy about the caps in the driveway pic either. Again, JMO.

I thought so to, but the block was as they requested. There is no sag, the slope of the driveway make it look that way in all of the pics I took, but we you stand in front of it you can see it is perfect. I have only built about 3 of these things so I am pretty happy with it and the client was extremely satisfied.

i think it looks terrible. not your work, but the wall itself. those planters are ridiculous and even though your work is fine, they look like homewoner specials. I hate that block, to me it looks cheap and cr@ppy. Again, I am not busting on your craftsmanship, just the choice of materials.

Gotta watch the stones in the winter time. A snow blower will hurl those stones and break windows. I'd never put loose stones anywhere out in the open like that.
