    The slide show slides a little too quickly, from the glempses I saw, it looked like you did a good job.

    Not including removal of old wall, approx $7.00 per block and $10.00 per cap piece installed. Can't tell exactly how much mats you used.

    pricing varies per region (country) but around here it should go for around $25-$30 +tax a sq foot face of the wall. mat + lab included

    Are you talking about all the retaining walls? If so $2000.00 would barely cover the cost of the material, let alone the labour. Is this your place or is it a customers home? To make any kind of money (depending on quality of job of course) you will need to charge approx. 3 times the blocks worth. Employees, base materials, glue for cap stones, fuel......the list goes on.

    Couple of questions,a nd an observation. How high and how long? Do you want a price for both sides? Did you use 4"x12" blocks? Obs, why did you make that one side a double wall or why did you make the tiers so close? Lokks like its about 32" high but I need a length. Otherwise, $20 a sq. foot for this type of wall.
