    LCO's really strive to be the FASTEST......:hammerhead:

    I would think we would focus on quality over speed. I know I do. when you focus on speed quality goes down.

    I'd rather turn out 6 quality yards a day than 12 mediocre yards a day that's for sure.

    If the wall was built right this would not have happened, your joints look like crap. Ive built walls during 5 day rains and they are fine. Grid is cheap insurance! Worry about being the best, not the fastest...

    I agree with you on this. I'm trying to decipher what went wrong. I'm thinking not enough base material and/or compacted enough. Or no fabric behind the wall, or they didn't backfill with class 5?

    Bad base subsoils + inadequate base material I would say.... and that fix doesn't really seem like a fix to me. I'm guessing it will happen again. To make a tiny wall like that drop that much? There isn't a ton of weight there.

    Not really a modular wall guy but our modular 'crew' of two guys can hammer out a 1000sq ft wall in 2 10 hour days, especially on a commercial setting. It's all about setup.

    Geo-grid is cheap insurance as is reaching proper compaction. It doesn't take that long and is cheaper than having to go back and fix something properly.
