This is a job we started about two weeks ago. I collaborated with the owner on the design and layout. Here we have decided to use block as the retaining wall/sitting bench. There is approximately 80 feet of wall. There are going to be two patios an upper and a lower. As you can see in the photos we are using form liners to give the concrete a chipped edge stone look. We will be installing re-bar in the block and bending it out on the cantilevered edge where we will run continuous re-bar around the whole edge. When we pour, we will fill the block with concrete and pour the bench at the same time.
