this wall was our first real wall. we put this wall in at my moms place, since she has the money and is willing to let us practice for future jobs. it was a fun project and due to rainy weather it took my partner and i almost a whole week. she has almost $4,000 in materials and about $800 in equipment rental. the wall has down lighting and the evergreens on top will be up lighted. our next project will be a paver patio where the dirt is at the bottom. i would appreciate any feed back on this project, and some bids on a wall this size. the height on the left side is almost seven feet, and the run to the left of the steps is almost 40'. i will post the patio as soon as it is completed.
