Last summer I replaced a failing two tier, 60 ft unilock retaining wall with a single tier limestone wall. Because of the weight of the limestone wall I had to pay to have this done. Since then I have been using the unilock to make rings around trees, garden edging, and rough mini patios under garbage cans, hose reels, etc. I don't think I can use all the unilock up!

I thought of selling the useless unilock but it requires scraping off the old caulking, cleaning, etc so it's not worth that much to most people. I have my wife's cousin to help me who works for crew cuts in this time of Covid. I enjoy using my new holland workmaster 25s for this work! ....

Very nice job! Yard looks great.

I think the uniblock looks best when first installed then less so with age.

How did the crew get those big slabs in place was skid steer enough?

Hello Handson, this job was done with small excavator with thumb to pick and place stones. Skidsteer to move soil. Yes, the unilock gets acid rain stained and doesn't look nearly as nice after a few years, although I was told I had good unilock with color throughout. An occasional powerwash would help :) You can see from rise off the soil that I would be much more comfortable with the large stones as opposed to the unilock.

When I bought the house in 2014 the unilock walls were beautiful. Then with the heaving of the soil over the winters it toppled after 4 years. The foundation was poured correctly for the unilock wall and the new stones are on top of that foundation. But there wasn't the correct drainage and stone behind the unilock walls. Hopefullly this new limestone wall will hold up.

I have to fix my 1/2 mile gravel lane...lots of potholes, ruts and gravel in ditches.
I have a rollover box blade that i will use to level as best as i can, then fill the holes.

Then, I'll move my firewood bins back into the shed for storage.
After that, probably start to move logs to cut them and prep for splitting.
Then, Harvest more downed trees for firewood.
Then fix the road again because it's a shared lane and it gets abused at times.
Then more firewood stuff
Then split and stack that stuff ;)

BUT FIRST i need to change my fuel filter and see if that fixes my high rpm issue (other post in Other Tractor brands- Mahindra)
And change my oil & lube...

Soon as the weather gets a bit warmer - maybe this week? Maybe tomorrow :) ....
