    Come on dude you talk about being "professional " and you cant even spell it right.

  • Jeffrey23az 1 year ago

    My guess is the dislikes on this video are from other contractors who want to use shortcuts and shortchange their customers.

    Nice tutorial, clear and to the point. One thing you might want to fix may seem nit-picky, but I think it may have a negative impact, right when you don't want it to.
    At 7:02 your onscreen captioning reads;
    Compliment your competition!
    It makes you look proffesional!
    …Even typing that here in comments is getting red-underlined by auto-spellchecker.
    I freakin' know you're a professional – but you gotta spell that word right.
    If you freeze the frame at 7:02, it's actually kinda funny.

    How does the top course of blocks disconnect from the course below with no dirt pushing them from behind?

    Hi Stanley, great video. Just wondering, would you use Ag pipe for drainage on the retained side of the wall, if you live in a heavy rain area?

    So are walls like these typically never mortared?

    Thank you for the video and your time . I need to build a retaining wall here in Texas and I have pure clay that expands and contracts a few inches inches from soaking wet to bone dry . I will have to try and find your product in my area or something similar . I had troubles hearing you with my volume all the way up on the laptop and the video player , is it possible for you to increase it in the video a tiny bit .

    Geo-fabric a couple of rows down would have really heled when the load of the motor vehicle was applied to the backfill

    Can you make retaining walls just out of concrete?

  • jjenson2006 1 year ago

    Why not just pour in some concrete and call it a day?

  • getsumbaby 1 year ago

    You picked a poor quality built wall in the first place. My stacked garden block wall is 7' high and very strong. Because it was properly built from the start.

    Hi Stanley, first I would like to thank you for making all this vids that other people would not even tell you where to buy the stuff from. I have one question or you. what it's the maket price to deliver and plant a Colorado blue evergreen it's a 48 gal. about 15 feet. I know it's way to big for me to handle because I don't own a bobcat but if I don't try new stuff I'll be stock just mowing lawns. I got to start somewhere and you are a big help with your vids I watch them all.

    What about blocks that have the lip but are hollow all the way through? If they are installed properly (with crusher stone) won't they drain properly?
