    Just finished a 25 ft wall, high point was 2-1/2 high and charged $6400. The rocks we got free from a farmer that had been piling them for yrs. Guessing we used only about 9-11 tons

    i did a wall out of natural stone that weighed about 150 lb. a piece. I built a 30 ft. x 5ft. slope wall for 1500.00 in labor.
