Thank you that is much better.

I have actually decided to stay away fromt he driveway until next year anyways. By then i will have alot more experience and a few classes. i am mainly focusing on getting the sod part of that job now.

I might end up not getting either the drive or the sod i hope to get it but if i don't what can i do, only move on to the next one.

My name is Ben

Next time get a signature or a time frame it is really annoying when you have 15 pages without a signed contract and now your not even doing the job. Stop wasting our time.

Keeps the soil from cloging the stone and making the stone ineffective for draiing the water.

Please tell me there is a plan for that downspout. I'd hate to see it drain along your wall. Talk about wash out, not to mention ice-hazard.
Wall looks good. I would like to see the one this thread is about. Sounds much bigger.

seeing the downspout there i would move it over to just inside the wall with an elbow, or move the entire downspout over. tie it into a solid drain pipe that runs the length of the wall, under the stone, and drain to the street away from any potential erosion or ice hazards.

does that sound correct? just trying to learn from this particular install he has here.
