    this is my next project on the list, i just started tearing the fence down yesterday. i will be replacing the old timber walls with segmented block. i will be using flat-faced cornerstone(buff) for this wall. there will be steps at the far end and there are 2 more walls in the back that are unable to see in the pics. i will be on vacation for a couple days but will start excavating next wed. she also wants new plants in between the walls but unsure about what we are doing there for now, and maybe a paver patio will be installed!!!!! i will post pics as the project goes.......


    this yard is messy but it will look great when complete...

    Looks like a pita, you will have to work from upper side. meaning handing down all block, filling from above, etc.

    i will have 2 drains for water behind the wall. shouldnt be a big deal. yea sucks the pool isnt open but good for me bc i wont worry about having to clean it everyday, and yea abunch of handwork from handing down all the block. but atleast its not a tall wall so it wont be too bad.

    Engineer said dirt wasn't right? Your gonna set your block straight on the soil? That's idiotic if its true.
