The wall in this thread is covered with snow right now if you would like that picture then no problem.

Also those pictures were taken with my blackberry, and i do have a camera you are correct, just got it back because it was corupting the data on the memory cards.

Man your work looks brutal. Why doesn't the top line up with the step on the left side?

certainly not the best work i've seen but it's far from "brutal". have you seen some of the crap guys out there are pumping out?

kudos to Hardscaping for giving a f- enough to come and ask for help. takes balls to admit you don't have all the answers amongst this crowd.

The top portion of walkway the customer wanted it like that too leave room for hiw garden.

the pattern i do admit on the landing is kinda weird. but it looks good when you look at it in person.

If that is what you call brutal then you should see some of the work out there being performed.

Like for example the guy next door to this house(it is a semi) is putting in wall with same materials.

he dug out half the trench then started laying blocks in. they didn't even get 35 block in and now it is exposed to the weather and will have to be redone, they are also using sand as a setting bed for the blocks.
