The wall rises higher

The first course is laid and the drainage pipe positioned behind it.

Then lots of gravel for backfill and filling spaces in the wall stones. Next geogrid to give extra stability to this wall built in front of a sinkhole on clay soil.

Course by course, the wall rises higher...

and hard working guys take a break for root beer floats.

Construction continues...stay tuned!
