6x6 Retaining Walls

CEFreemanJune 27, 2012

Well, not necessarily retaining, but rather low, maybe "pony" walls that would demark a courtyard area.

What I can't find online (that makes any sense for me) is directions on how to make the walls not fall over? Rebarr? Do they need foundations poured?

What would you suggest? I'm doing this myself.

[whisper] "Weathered" 6x6x12s on CL for $8.00 each from a major fence company. YEAH!

Thanks for your help,

Christine, these are the guidelines we go by.
