    I think you have over estimated the amount of Colorado Red Wall Stone required and underestimated your fill and compaction gravel . If this is your first wall recommend you work closely with someone in your area to insure your not coming back next spring to straighten the wall back up. The pricing of the wall is determined based on your cost, not someone elses cost, you need to calculate your labor, equipment, material and over head into your projects/bids before you begin and then adjust them as you gain knowledge and do other types of projects. I wish you luck and hope your wall goes wall.
