    I don't know any websites, but if you go to the place that sells retaining wall blocks they should have brochures that explain exactly how to install them.

    Check out these
    Ideal block
    Allen Block

    All of these companies have info & Contractor's Installing guides.
    As well as your local Stone or Landscaping/Nursery should have info.
    Practice in your own yard if possible & when the time is right to do your 1st job, just take your time. Remember, your 1st few jobs your not going to make a million $$$, but your going to learn the right & wrong ways of doing this work. Best of All!!! It beats Mowing any day.
    Good Luck:blob2:
