    Anyone ever have to fix a keystone wall that was pushed out while backfilling? It's not high, maybe 2'. It seems like the loader bringing in the fill got too close and pushed out and lifted the blocks. Can it just be dug out and re-set?

    It shouldn't be too much of a problem. Curved or straight?
    Try to find out where it moved, use a level to check the face of the wall. If you mean the toe moved then I would rethink my building steps. Make sure you back fill and tamp the toe and never bring a loader within 2' of the back of the wall when back filling.
    Just dig out the back wide enough to expose your base unit and rebuild. We just rebuilt a wall we put in 10 years ago, it seems a tractor ran into it, broke a few cap and chipped some of the wall but other than that it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.
