Brownstone Versa-Lok Mosiac wall. It is about 300-350' wall and 5 an half foot high. Took about 3 weeks from start to finish. Wall has geo-grid, drainage, #2 rounds all the way up until about 6 inches.

Yea I can see why he would do that. In new york on a wall like that would you typically use pvc or perforated tile? I only use perforated i really havn't had a reason to use pvc. I see some people do it though.

First project you posted really needs to have the cap stones extend past the main riser blocks. Just doesn't look finished. Try using a different capstone next time. Also I'm not sure why you had to cut both ends of the caps it looks like you could of used only one cut per row instead of two.
Walkway really doesn't look professional imo, if you were looking for a runner pattern then I would of done just that, follow one brick after another following the curve.
Retaining wall would of looked awesome in natural stone, there just seems to be so much .....wall. Maybe it just needs some border planting...
