okay folks need some suggestion ! have a block wall im building
the first wall is 8"x16"x150ft behind that is a 16" planter then behind the planter is another wall thats 8" x 4ft x 150 i have a seperation in the wall for the walkway ------ ------ at the walkway entrances i need to put a collum at both sides right now im planning on a basic square 24x24x 4ft6" but wanted a newer look. Im laying block tonight will leave collums for last thanks.all your suggestions would help !! thanks
Depending on your budget and where you are, you could use some split architectural block and really have an accent at the entrance/walkway. If you have a good local block producer, you may be able to buy a few split corners (8x8x16) as an over-run for a large job.
In any case, make sure you have adequate vertical reinforcement in the wall and especially at the ends.
