Upper view of the wall. There is a drainage catch basin under the cobbles in the corner of the patio to catch the runoff from it. ANd the cobbles going down the side is to prevent erosion because it is so steep.

Moving on to the upper wall

Sidetracking to a small job we did, then i'll get back to the other one.

Amending the existing soil

By ryangall at 2011-12-17

Worst soil i've delt with in my area. Rock hard clay. At least we don't have boulders to deal with!

Thanks for the comments.

That project is actually our own house. So price is materials and sweat only.

Here's some more pics

GMC had some major repairs recently. New head gaskets, injectors, and other items. Then the tranny went out. So here she is loaded up on the way to the repair shop.
