    Hey there! I was looking up info for building a retaining wall and stumbled upon this site. I am not really a contractor but am finding this type of work really rewarding. Hard Work...but rewarding! Any how...I was wondering if a blocksplitter works better than a wet saw for cutting pavers? If I can get pics up I will show my wall that is still in progress.
    Thanks ,:usflag:

    How can you guys say it looks good?

    All we have is a little picture showing about 24 SF of pavers. And the job isnt even complete.

    Thusfar all we have are pics that are only worthy of a facbook posting. You know, where you post pics and all your friends and aunts say "that is beautiful, when I win the lottery i'm gunna call you"

    if you're wanting a rough face showing, then block splitter.
    If you want to closely fit one block to another then wet saw.
    looks good for your first job.:waving:

    We always use a demo saw to cut pavers.

    DVS...I appreciate your honesty. This has been a learning experience from the start. And you are right...it is not done yet. And I have no intention to go into business for myself. The question I was asking was about a block splitter....Not how great it looked. I thought if the expirenced members new what materials I was useing they could give me a better response.

    To all who gave me a positive comment...thank you. To all the professionals on this site that I have offended by "playing in YOUR sandbox" :nono:
    I am sorry.
