Do It Yourself Soil Conservation wall

When it comes to hold the tons of garbage, you basically have two choices. Hire a mason contractor and have a concrete wall built in traditional blocks, you can do yourself or with a device (or segmented) retaining wall blocks.

The use of retaining wall blocks, unlike traditional concrete retaining wall construction is becoming increasingly popular. You may notice many new commercial construction projects that areusing the method of superposition of the building blocks of the retaining wall for many reasons.

The advantages of using the conservation of the blocks

Do it yourself and save money

These blocks provide a strong wall that can be considered permanent

Building permits are not required to wall 4 meters high - the building code may vary. Check local regulations.

The wall can be reconfigured or removed, if necessary, in the future

The block can bereused

The wall can be planted in "a" living wall (depending on the type of block)

Build your own pace

We must capture more color and style choices

Case study

In my case, the wall I needed is about 75 meters long and 3-4 meters high. The estimate received for the traditional concrete block wall was $ 6,500. The cost of materials for interlocking blocks was $ 1,200 ... savings of $ 5,300. Never fear, thishard work. The basic steps for you to dig the foundation row, stack block, verify that the correct alignment and level, then recovery and compact. This block weighs 62 pounds. each, but if you're up to the task and you want some serious money on a project like this, stacking blocks are a good option. For my project I chose to block 30 with and vegetables available at Home Depot in California for use.

This is an important project for the do-it-yourself with astrong back and a desire to save some serious money on a retaining wall. It is very gratifying to stand back and watch your completed project with pride and if profit is the envy of your neighbors.
