    I price mine per square foot of the face of the wall. The first couse of the wall will take the longest.

    you want to price your retaining walls by the face foot according to the material cost and then factor in your uncontrollable issues such as- how accessible the build site is, machine time,how is the digging going to be?what do you need to make on the job?This all comes with experience and no one formula will work for all,just try to cover all the bases and still quote a fair price for a quality job.

    I don't know if this is to personal of a question or not, but could you give an example of one of your most recent walls? Step by step how you did it? If that is giving away to much i understand.
