    No geo grid, No Geo- textile fabric, the back fill was done wrong. I hope you only had a one year warranty

    Don't be a jerk, he didn't build it. Just trying to jump down his throat.

    BTW, that's one of the ugliest houses I've ever seen:)

    He asked our opinion, so to the person who built it please look into ICPI or another accredited paver install school. I see work all the time from contractors that only year or two later that shifts or heaves. Customers have come to expect this out of paver installs which lowers the value of a prodeuct I sell. Dont want to be a jerk to anyone but its $ out of my pocket and yours.

    Geogrid acts as a deadman. It anchors the wall into the hill and prevents the wall from falling forward. Go to unilock website and they have illustrations on geogrid and when and where to use it.

    Visibly pleasing work initially, agree not the way I would have done it though. I'm going to put some of this back on the owners as well...from the sounds/looks of it they always shop for the cheapest deals. Probably got the house on the cheap side, then trying to make it look even more luxurious with the new additions, but as cheap as possible again. That hydro-seeding is another example...looks way to light but I suppose it could just be the pics. You get what you pay for, and not all contractors mind doing a job the incorrect and unsafe way.

    I am curious too as to how it is holding up.
