    Nice work but I highly doubt that a person in their first year could do a job like that!

    Thats a good sized job, but you'll need more close ups and installation picks like drainage and base to get applauded. I do see something wrong. The front landing appears to have a reverse banter. Is it my eyes?

    This is our first year in business. We are experienced though. Was sick of making my boss money.
    For base we diesel plated sub-base then threw down green line and added 1' of base for foundation of wall and 60 ton of GA infill..Also used GeoGrid. As for banter I thought I saw the same thing when completed, but checked with my 4' and its just in the eyes.

    haha, "was tired of making your boss money" . just wait. hire employees, buy equipment, then you start the expenses. stuff starts breaking with the most common response being "i dont know what happened" . stay small, then you dont have to deal with AS MUCH b.s. looks good though for a first project

    Looks like you've used celtik block and your pin location is not far enough back. Likely you've ended up with a wall facing forward. To many straight lines in the back yard, no soldier course. Good luck with your business, who did you work for before? I know most the guys in Ottawa.

    Theres no sub base... just base. Think you meant Subgrade. There could be a sub base under a base, but thats only if you past first base and make it to second base. :dizzy:
