The Q&A Archives: Retaining Wall Block Placement.

Question: When I am building my wall with 12 X 4 X 8 inch blocks, can they be stacked right on top of eachother? If not, how do I square off the end. Please do not tell me to go buy a concrete wet saw. I will be disappointed.

Answer: You need to stagger the blocks so they do not align or stack. To square off the end you would finish with the special corner blocks, either half or whole size as needed.
