There's a term I have never heard. What is it?
Built a lot of retaining walls over the years but this is a new term to me.

Wayne -

where are you located? If you are in CA or AZ slump block privacy walls are common and most municipalities have standard construction details. - That is a good place to start.

Normally, the walls are not 150' long without an opening, pilaster or height change that serve as joints, it is not a problem. For a 150' long wall the same height, you can expect some minor vertical cracks. they are natural with any long concrete structure.
