    I am building a very small wall for my parents. Maximum 18" high down to 6". The rock yard has these three sizes. What is best for the base?

    Here we use 2A limestone which is 1/2" to 1" limestone with fines (limestone dust/chips) mixed in so it is compactable when dampened slightly. Not sure what it is called in other places...
