just finished first rockwall..

hey guys. I just did these two rockwalls for my grandpa. The first one used to be a slope like you see on the top level that came onto the driveway and took about 2 feet away from it (the before pics are on another camera)
There is also another level on top of the top level to make it look better..ill get pics eventually.

josh....thats my grandpas...tho it does get much better mileage than my truck....

i was glad to have my truck when we loaded the 1.5 tons of rock in it...the guy said it would take a week to get it delivered...so we made 3 trips...took 3 days (plus a couple hours delivering it) so it worked

Looks good for what it is, but that is way to much sandstone/rock or whatever you guys call it up there in new jerky. Not nockin ya, just too much for my tastes, but then again I put in a 300ft wall alan block wall afew years back and that was still too much for my tastes.

I use 3/4 in clean stone for back fill and 3/4 clean stone base covered with qp or dust on top then I lay the block. Whats going on out in Butler?
