    Looks good for your first try, Jacob!

    Are you going to the ICPI course on the northshore?

    Look really good level and nice curves! The only thing I have is make sure on thoese smaller walls at least half of your first course is burried. It is kinda hard to tell from the pic but it looks like the wall on the far left of the house might not be burried deep enough.

    Looks good from here! Not sure I like the color combo... but whatever the customer wants.

    Question for you, how much base do you put down, deep x wide?

    Next you need to sell them on an overlay for that cruddy looking porch landing!

    Then a few lights on top of that wall.

    Then the sidewalk should be upgraded to match and complement the rest of it.

    That oughta be enough to keep you hopping for a bit, eh!

    Everything looks nice and level, good job!

    Have fun getting that pile of dirt/mud/sand off the yard, I hate scooping stuff off grass like that.

    I'd like to see pictures of how you did the corners? Thinking about some classes myself.
