    This is the sort of job I'm looking for. I'm too comfortable with masonry and have yet to do segmental walls...........pavers yes, walls no.

    Where are you located?

    What was your installation like? grid? drainage stone, drain tile? Looks pretty good, just a few minor things that my be the camera as well.

    Paul, you can only do 5 pics per post. So, attach as many pics as allowed per post, submit, then you can do another post within the same thread, with more pics.

    The installation looks decent. I'm curious how you did your stairs. At the bottom, they don't look integrated into the wall, but then at the top, it seems like the top of each step block matches each wall block....???? I'm a little confused I guess.

    I don't know all the correct terminology but her i go, I have to say the wall its self was really tough because of the slope going down the drive way but i took my time to get everything leveled on the base course. I trenched every thing out well behind the wall and down enough for 3/4 to 0 foundation and laid textile down under the foundation and brought it up between the soil and the 3/4 stone behind the wall and filled it with a lot of clean 3/4 stone. Glad my dad has a bobcat and i did compact the foundation and there's a perforated running down the bottom of the whole wall. The wall is pitch back with the pins on the block also.

    A wall that tall should have at least one pull of grid. Especially at it's highest point.
