    I have a 115 sq ft retaining wall a client wants built. The wall holds up a wall of soil heading down cellar stairs. The old wall is still there but is a mortared cinderblock wall. This is coming down and a concrete block wall is going up. The wall I have to put in has an obtuse angle maybe 120*. i have done rounded corners and 90* corners but never anything else. My question is how do i stagger that joint as I build up? Thanks

    Cut the blocks to the 120 deg angle then ball peen the edge. No biggie.

    Is it going to be a srw wall or a veneered wall?
