    You're right.

    Depending on height and soil may need more drainage

    Ok, thanks I'll do more research into drainage. How would you normally price a rebuild? Square foot times half the price of a complete build?

    You still have to bring in material for the base and acquire a few stones but that should pretty much cover materials depending on what you do for drainage. Labor would be just about double the cost of building it because you have to take it down first. The only price theyre saving is that you don't have to bring in all new stones. I was serious when I said it costs more to fix a bad job than it does to build it right.
