    Im meeting with a customer tommorow morning about replaceing a RR tie wall thats base is in a lake. they want to use the engineered wall, versa lok, rock wood, and so forth. we've done alot of walls including ones that require geo grid so im not worried about about the reinforcement of the wall. Im basicly wanting to know if any one that has installed this type has any tricks that they would care to share that might make the job go smother. Ive read all the manifactures specs and so forth but was hopeing for some realistic advice :) thanks

    useing a trecher and or bobcat or mini skid are all not possible due to the location of this wall, there is no way to get the equipment down to the base level, every thing will have to be done by wheel barrow

    No that is a hard job and there is not much cure for it but to get a bunch of helpers.Hard work and is never gonna go smooth if your doing it by hand.
