New wall pics

We just finished this wall the other day. Missing a few before pics of the footing (from start to finish). The footing was not the best work that
I've seen but we made it work.

Doesnt look too straight or even but. how are the pavers tied in on top? just a block adhesive? Why not continue with the block work instead of doing the timbers on the other side? I imagine you hit rock lol

The guy that dug the footing really messed us up on this. Dog leg to follow the parking, lot staying off the curb 12inches and below about an inch. Instead it looked like a snake and was above a foot in some areas. Given what we had to work this was the final result. The block and caps are motared in and the cross ties are tied in with rebar and angle iron. The guy didnt want to go across the top with block at this time( maybe later)
Just a quick fix to an eye soar.

I'm glad the timber wall isn't a block wall, cause I'd definitely be worried about washout under that one - not that you shouldn't worry about it with the timbers, but it wont bend out of shape as fast.

Not trying to be rude, but can you explain how that's a quick fix to an eyesore?
You still see everything, and you could have done better work

I don't think it looks too bad. I actually really like the stucco walls. Not sure about the brick though, just seems like a lot of different materials without any unification of material type. I have to say it is original though and not just your average boring segmental wall.

The quick fix was the cross ties! Something to hold back some of the wash. People come up with ideas on there own and we just make them work. The idea was to break up the building next door with some type of wall from the parking lot. They just wanted something low cost at the top.

How did that string line work on a crooked wall. Iwould have made the guy re dig the footer trench straight.
