    If you don't put proper drainage behind even a small wall like this.They put plastic over it before I could get a pic..but you can immagine under the plastic is a muddy mess.The blocks in the second pic are the ones that fell down and have been set aside for rebuilding it I guess.

    thats a jobsite sign, not a for sale sign. I think I would have ripped my sign down at that point.

    Curious as to why you believe it was caused by lack of drainage.

    That "door to nowhere" looks pretty funny up there. I assume there was steps before:rolleyes: . Is that a downpipe on the corner of the house?.

    No no stairs or front porch built yet and no raingutters on yet..The place is for sale and the buyers have to have the gutters installed so..no that is not a downspout there on the back corner.
