    we built 3 of the retaining walls yesterday, in one day with a four person crew!!!!! but i thought they turned out pretty good. From now on all post all my picts on this thread. let me know what you guys think. Just a little about myself we do work in southern IN doing residential and commercial serving about 80 clients, I have 4 full time employees. Im only 19 yrs old too, and everything you see is what i bought and own.

    walls look pretty nice - the drain tile on that second one is hideous!!! Why did you leave it like that? Is there something I can't see in the pic?

    I think I see why they were done so quickly that thing could fall down with a stiff wind

    looks good but in the first picture the 2nd from the top you have some bigger stones in there that should have been placed in the bottom rows.

    hey buddy i like to see u blow that thing over, each walls got 8 bags of concrete in them, oh and if you cant notice each wall has been gauge, and sloped 1- 1/2 inches every three ft. back so its not falling over anytime soon, also i offer a 5 yr warranty on retaining walls which alot of other companies that do crappy work wont do. I stand by every bit of work i do

    :nono:

    yeah i just did what the customer wanted, he wanted it gradely cut down like a trough that went into his pond, the pond was way down but i think he wanted the culvert running down farther into the pond so things wouldn't errode

    icic. seems like the stone on the banks would prevent erosion, but i guess the customer gets what the customer wants. lol

    i see what your saying but in alot of the books ive read, and just a few other professionals that ive got alot of advice from have told me to put a capstone on top or heavier stone on top with a 1 1/2 in slope every three inches going into the ground. But it dont matter let me know what you guys think
