    Sorry but those blocks make the project looks cheap

  • You don't need to make it this complicated, and spend all that money…..

    I completed many years ago using this method I used sand instead of paver base I have clay soil. My retaining wall still looks fantastic. I am a woman and did it all by myself. It is not to difficult except for the 1st row. I am in the process of doing another one with different levels that should be fun. Cheaper than hiring someone.

    Is the landscape fabric really necessary I wonder? I feel over time the dirt would clog it and it would move..starting a wall soon, and only plan 5 rows to of 3.5 inch tall blocks as long as it got some good gravel behind most it that'd be good right? ✌

    Lowes were I bought my blocks man help me out . Except he did know nothing how to lay them . Help load pallet up. I bought 3/4 STONE for my base so water can go to the front for derange

    Don't use fabric because your wall won't be able to drain and you'll have a blowout

    ?? When you fold the fabric back across the gravel, what is to keep weeds from still coming up between the blocks and the gravel?

    Can you use sand for the trench instead of gravel? My wall is going to be 3 ft. High.

    To whomever can help. What if I can't dig due to a huge tree and it's really thick roots? Any other suggested starting options?

  • Not to argue with the experts, but if you use fabric barrier then those pores will clog up with dirt and trap water. Not what I want to see happen with my project, but that's me.
