It's finally done!
We (and by we I mean KB) started building this retaining wall on Labor day. Almost 3 months later and it's finally done!
This probably would have gone faster if everything KB did didn't have to be perfect. It turned into a nightmare of civil engineering complete with load of gravel, soil conditioner, drainage pipes and outdoor caulk. Hopefully once spring comes and we can get some plants in the ground it will be just beautiful.
