    I wish I had before pics to show before I installed the retaining wall, 4 tons of white sand, removed stumps, and preped site. I done a lot of work at this house.
    What do you think??,,,,,, OK,,,,, home owner loved it. Two weeks later it rained so hard that it washed almost all the sand away, so he had me to spread 4 more tons of white sand!!

    Did you create the seeds of erosion with the weight of the blocks? Is this a factor where you reside? just curious, as I've done some work with Salmon...

    Looks like Pensacola beach!

    State up here is real picky up here about what type of sand, and how much you put in.

    Looks great!

    The sand looks like a waste, but it looks good until it washes away at least! payup

    The homeowner was sponsoring a dinner for a fire department with about 200 quests so their children could have a place to play. You're right the sand doesn't last long. I dumped and spread 8 tons of the beach white of the Catawba River mud.

    I bededged over 1200' and spread 30 yards of triple ground mulch. I (we) was a little tired that week
