    I am looking at a retaining wall job for the side of a driveway.
    I have to remove an existing one ( concrete block ) and the owner would like a stacked type wall in its place.
    I can estimate the removal etc , but how can I price the new one as a quesstmate for his budget purposes.
    I do not need to be exact as I know the selection of the retaining wall stone will be a factor in its price.
    ( I am referring to the type that has a split type face and steps back and interlocks each course )
    Thanks for any help.

    The wall is 6 foot high and 25 foot long.

    $1500 for the engineer, then you can give him a price based on what the engineer tells you how to build it. Will need geo grid at that height.
