Hadley Hickman says:

I wanna build a wall on my yard

Lyle Phillips says:

I'm in the middle of this project. Some thoughts: It's def not as easy as you think it's going to be after watching a 3-minute video. There's a def learning curve to doing this. Def buy a tamp, a rubber mallet, and a contractor's level if you can. I used Paver Base to get my ground floor level and that worked well. Don't use gravel or larger rocks for that. I hope that's helpful!

Can you use this to make a fire pit ?

How do I create 90 degree corners?

Lee Mychajluk says:

Can you make right angles and/or tie 2 walls into each other? I have a project where I would want to build a shape similar to a capital letter 'E', with an extension coming off the bottom of the 'E', and fill along the long edge of the 'E'.

Carlos Gonzalez says:

For ease firs layer use sand after gravel or screen soil

This is the ugliest retaining wall I've ever see

mrob75 says:

sheesh…such a big to do about nothing…Just lay down the pavers…You're not building a house…

Devon Parkhurst says:

Used this video for guidance, keep in mind the first layer of brick takes a lot of time to ensure level and straight. This is most important when putting the wall up.
