Interlocking Block Garden Wall


As I mentioned I haven't backfilled yet, am I ok not using a perforated pipe or would you? Several people have said it was not necessary for this job.

Interlocking Block Garden Wall


this project has cost me 365.52. I had to buy all of the tools (wheelbarrow, 4' level, sledge hammer...). I still have to buy the crushed stone for the backfill. If I can get a truck, that will be a small expense (I think). What do you think a pro would have charged?

Seems like you have a gutter above this
So roof water is not going into this area
Based on the size I'd say not needed
Gravel is backfilled along the wall to prevent freezing ground pushing the wall out
---ops - just noticed you are aware of that
