So after lots of consulting with all of you, the people at Versalok, and my local landscaping supply center, I finally broke ground on my retaining wall project. I figured I would keep everyone posted on here.
I am replacing about 40 x 2-6 ft (the grade rises) of rubble wall that surrounds my driveway. It is subsiding heavily and needs to be done. I am digging about six feet back all the way around, to make room for my geogrid and backfill. I am doing about 12 inches of trap rock directly behind the wall, with a 4 inch drain tile at the bottom which will terminate at the far end of the wall. I plan on doing the geogrid @ 2 and 4 feet.
Here are some pics of the site before, and day 1 of digging.

And a few of Day 1s Progression

Any suggestions on what I should do with all that rock that I am pulling out?
