Got a project that will be pretty big for this summer. Doing 2 patios with pavers that will each be 128 sqft, then a replacement retaining wall 24" tall and 16' long. This wall existing wall currently ties into an EP Henry style block wall and has begun to fail. The second patio will have retaining walls on all four sides (one below and three surrounding) totaling about 32 linear feet starting near grade and eventually ending at 36". I will post pics as soon as I can resize my B4 pics. All work has to be done by hand due to access issues. Only way to get into the yard is via a 24" wide alley, and the only excavator I know of that can get down that alley sleeps at my house. Another issue is labor. I'll be doing the work myself and getting help from family members when I can entice them with beer and pizza. I'm thinking it can be done in less than 9 weeks and for under 5k. Thoughts?
