Here are some photos of a recent retaining wall project we just completed. This one kinda sucked because we did almost all the work in the mud and rain. You should have seen the site before and during the project. It was a mud bowl. We had a really nice design done for this yard. Paver patio between the two lower walls, stairs coming down from the deck, lots of nice plants and trees, rock steps, etc. But the customer could only afford the retaining wall work at this time. He's going to try doing the rest himself. Not the biggest or most impressive retaining wall project we've ever done. But I thought it turned out well. I like the look of Allan Block. Especially the Ashlar Blend, which we used on the seat wall. Here are the photos; http://www.lewislandscape.com/photos/gallery/album41 .
