    I have done multiple patios in the past starting with my Eagle project. About to due my first retaining wall for another good friend of mine who wants one and is letting me get experience. I want the job to come out as best as possible. Please tell me any tips. DO YOU MORTAR THE STONE TOGETHER? WHAT ABOUT COPING STONE AT THE TOP? MORTAR OR WHAT BETWEEN JOINTS?
