    That's correct. I have only been (personally) in Indiana for 3 years. This job is back in Boise when I was living there.

    Ok, that makes more sense. It didn't look like any part of Indiana I had ever been to, and looking at your site you definietly have a more western vibe.

    The job is using "typical" specs. The engineer i use would have exceeded "typical" specs. Meaning more base course below grade. Longer grid lengths.

    A clean crapper on your retaining wall construction site is crucial.

    i havent been takin many pictures. hard to take pictures with the phone ringing all day long for estimates, for cryin out loud, you'd think it was spring!

    The manufacturer started making their block colors more earth tone friendly, doing away with solid colors.

    Looks like cheap grid. Do you have a close up of it and what strength is it?

    LOL - You can hardly see the grid, there is a shadow over it. So you have no clue what you're typin, now do you? :)

    It's only standing out from the block erect. Can't be too cheap.

    It's exactly as speced.

    350 for the 1st 2 courses

    200 after that.

    And no, I do not have a "close up" of grid! And I'm not taking a pciture of grid. You can see grid with the help of Google. That would be like a roofer taking a picture of 15/32 plywood.

    Don't worry Rusk-A-Roni, I have faith that you may land some walls (other than a 3-4' in conjunction with a patio) this year :usflag:
