This is a very good document to help understand how to build a beautiful retaining wall. I was very impressed with the ability to see video links on each step of the process. It was very cool to have access to an estimating APP through this book. Great pictures, great graphics, easy to read instructions and many good ideas on what I can do in my back yard.

Thanks for making something complicated very inviting to do myself.
