    This is the first retaining wall we have built for hire. Please let us know what you think.

    Another view.

    I don't have any more pics yet, but the wall is complete. We still have to install a small walkway past the steps that will connect the lower patio to the upper patio.

    What are the plans for the grade change under the window to the wall? Last photo looks like the top run on the wall is complete.

    I think it looks very good. Would like to see the completed job to see how it all ties together........very well done.

    edit>>>>>>>>after a second take...I see there is another tier yet to go.
