look at pictures before talking ish.


The wall did not need the grid reason being i did not put it in? THIS WALL WAS DESIGNED BY THE COMPANY SUPPLYING THE BLOCKS, AND DID NOT NEED NOR HAVE IN THE CALL FOR THE BUILDING OF THE WALL WITH GRID IN PLACE.

structure of wall is good and has no flaws according to what needed to be done. that wall has 6 inches of Road gravel and then 5 to 6 inches of 3\4 crusher run stonefor the base. Then for drainage with about 10 inches of backfill with 3\4 inch crushed stone and 4 inch perferated with fabric drain pipe from start to finish.

Your job looks good. I would have done a little different with the steps but you did a good job. You dont need a grid with that wall.

I don't think geogrid will help much in this situation, there is barely any pressure against the wall, but if you ask me its got "homeowner special" written all over that job. Why would anyone ever use Allan block junior for a retaining wall is beyond me.

If you read the thread you would have seen it was already picked out and purchased by the home owner. They hired him to install.
