    Well here are some pictures of a job we just finished. We built the walls using EP Henry English Garden Wall blocks, planted the plants, installed the walkway, and laid the sod.

    Did the home owner request the walk width?

    What do you mean? They wanted the slate steps to be 3 wide ate the stoop and then 2. So yes, is that's what you mean.

    how do you get the "walls" to be so even? when ever i lay the brick edging it takes like 3-4hrs to do 30feet cause i dig out 6inches, fill 3 with slag, then barry them 3in down so 3in is sticking out then i lay em on top, but i always get my level to make sure their straight, but it takes soo long to make sure its level, do any of you fellers have tips?

    my father reccomended using a string and line level.

    btw that looks awsome

    It does take time to get it all straight and level. It took two guys about 2 1/2 days to build the wall. We use levels and string lines. Thanks.
