    and your looking at roughly 225 block with a footing ready to go no poured cores straight wall maybe $900 for a mason to lay the wall. If i was to come in there and do a stone wall you would be looking at $7000 easy block would be about 3-4K start to finish

    we are talking about dry walls. One course underground, even in hard freeze areas.

    okay so cut the price in half still cheaper to run block but stone is better. I would do a wall block over 8" CMU they look better and still cheaper then stone
