Large Slab Rock Wall with pics

This was a volunteer job I did for a local high school. They are going to place a statue under the cap rock. There will be three fountains in front of the statue with a 500 gal pondless retention system. The slabs are from Lynchburg, OH, each weighs between 800-2000lbs. The cap stone is Indian Gray aprox 13'x8' and 10000lbs. All the walls were reinforced with appropriate geogrid and drain-tile. Several drains had to be relocated or installed. From start to the point shown was approximately 4 weeks.

Slabs: 220 tons
#57 lime no dust: 160 tons
DGA: 140 tons

Oh and I realize there is a slight slope to the back most portion of the two walls but the front corners are actually level and this job was completed under severe time restraints...and it was free.

I did not buy the stone quarry direct, but the supplier I used is the one that digs it processes it, and wholesales it across the midwest. I paid a little bit more but it allowed me to be a little more picky when it came to dimensions and quality so basicly no waste. We paid $100 bucks a ton.

We donated the labor, all the equiptment rental was donated, the gravel was hauled at cost. All said and done the project still cost just under a hundred grand. That does include the statue (19 grand) that is being made in Italy and wont be here for another couple of months.
