Here is another one the guys just finished start to finish including sod, three days the guys were moving on this one. This is a wall that I hate and normally wouldn't agree to do. The situation was a 80 year old gentelman whos health was declining at his age. He said all he wanted was to have was a moderatly flat yard. He said he had never had one and it was on his bucket list. Kind of odd but we gave him just what he was looking for. Probably one of the best customers I have ever worked for I wish they were all this way.

They look like a nice block they have a more finished refined look to them instead of the split faced blocks.

The first block is a rockwood and the tan one is a versa lok block. Both have snapped front faces.

Do you like using the Rockwood blocks or the Versa Lok better?

I like the price point on the Rockwood blocks.

Nice wall, but I think the yard is looking a bit funky with the existing grade going into the wall fill.

kind of a a grass hump going into a dirt flat. I hope he is planning to plant something in there
