    Then we got the job right next door. Same deal. Except this guy wanted 90˚ corners rather than rounded corners. So here are some photos from that project. We did these simultaneously.

    Sorry no posts here on Lawnsite in a while. Absolutely crazy busy this year. Booking jobs into mid July right now. All 3 install crews going pedal to the metal 10-12 hrs a day / 5 days a week trying to keep up. Hardscapes are especially popular this year. But business overall has been going nuts in almost every other department as well. I have had almost no time at all for anything except work for a long time. Hope you're all having a good season. :usflag:

    hmmmm......I do not see any drain tubing or piping coming through the botton of the walls.

    Please explain how the pressure is alleviated.

    And Yep! Love the house with the T1-11!

    Come on. All my guys are certified level 2 wall builders with Allan Block. You think we're going to leave out the drainage? There are holes in the curb with ABS pipe coming through. Those are for gutters to outlet into the street. We tied into those lines right before the curb and tested each drain line to make sure the water went to the street like planned. You can't really see the drains in the street in those photos. And to make matters worse, the city has re-paved the street a few times (just adding a half inch each time) and the holes are buried half way now. But they are still there and they still work.

    This isn't a photo from that job. But the curb drains at those two houses look just like this;

    That's Slick, around here we aren't allowed to discharge any water directly to the street. We are even being taxed now on the water that runs off your driveway and into the street.
    Good looking walls

    Right... That makes perfect sense. Because in nature water always stays where it lands, right? :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:
