I wished you were in Texas Karma and I'd take you up on that. SOOOO worried about our retaining wall problems. The installer has yet to even put up our pool because we are trying to come up with creative ideas for making sure no earth moves around. We put in the retaining wall with RR ties, even cantilevered them so they are slanting into the hill and have 2 dead man pieces, but still worried about the dirt coming out from under the foundation tie because the excavator guy had to dig a couple feet below it to accommodate the height of the pool. My hubby built the "green Terrace" last spring and we wanted to keep it and incorporate it into the landscape because we like it for the fireplace.
