We are in the middle of a major backyard makeover and are trying to take on some of the projects to save some money! I would really appreciate any help/ ideas that could be offered! Thanks you in advance!
Currently there is a 50 foot long by 5 foot high retaining cinderblock wall in our backyard. The concrete footing on this retaining wall is 2 1/2 feet.
I would like to build a cinderblock bench along the whole length of the wall. The cinderblocks would be placed on top of the already existing footing. Would this be a problem?
My major concern is that building a bench on top of the existing footing would somehow disrupt the existing retaining wall.
Thanks for your help in advance!!
