    Here is a few of my walls, I use allen block. Also i am running pro landscape vol. 12. I have over 130 plus walls in my area, and now getting ready for our home show this weekend. Instead of single photo's i chose a slide show for this year i hope it works. I will have another notebook running prolandscape 12 i'm the only landscaper in the area with it. I think it should gain some attention since no one has heard of it.

    Web page looks good. When you cap, just wondering why you double stack you cap where the wall steps down??????

    That is not a double cap. What you see is a allen block lite, it is half the height of full size block. An allen block does not have a finished end. so place a lite fill it with gravel install cap finished end.

    Sorry.... It looked like a double stacked cap. My bad. I have seen alot of companies that stack two caps. Just kind of wondering why they do it???

    Hey mike,
    Have you ever considered just knocking the tabs off the AB and cutting the cap to fit tight? We no longer use the corner or the half blocks that you use. Seems like we never have enough or get too many and the end up wasted. Just wondering.

    Never give it a thought, ill try that next time, I know what you mean sometimes you forget to order enough lites. Last year we built a wall along side of driveway up hill around 40', i must of stepped it 14 times. Guess what! i didnt figure enough lites
    Thanks for your suggestion,
