    Showed up at my customer's house yesterday to do the spring clean up. I know this wall was and has been a problem for a few years now, but look what happened to it over the winter. Worst part of this all is its a two tier wall and it supports the foundation of the house. Turns out the builder of the house never got a permit for this wall. Also, I included a shot of the truck and trailer since I've been asked to a few times. I'll add a new pic when I finally get my lettering put on it.

    wow, I don't know too much about hardscaping, but shouldn't there be stone, drainage, grid behind that wall?

    Did you get your tailer painted to match the truck? That looks really nice. Never liked navy blue trucks untill I saw yours.

    The trailer was custom ordered. I got it exactly the way I wanted it. I think it will look pretty sharp with some lettering.

    I haven't done a lot of hardscaping, but I've built enough walls to know that there should be a bunch of gravel behind that wall and drain tile. Grid, I'm not sure, but definately Grid it if nothing else just to overbuild it. That whole wall will need to come out to be fixed right. BTW, nice rig!!

    Wow! Nice truck and trailer!! Is that Powerstroke? Matching combos like that look so cool. You know, some aluminum wheels on the trailer would really look sweet.
