How To Build a Retaining Wall
Give your plain landscape a stunning makeover with an attractive block retaining wall. The blocks for this project have a locking flangewhich makes the installation easyand they can be used to build walls up to 28 inches high. It's smart to plan your layout. Avoid having downspouts pointed at the wall and if it's against the house, keep the soil bed well below the siding. To mark a freeform layout, use a rope or hose to outline the shape. Then use a shovel to mark the outline. For straight lines, mark the entire bed area with stakes, string and marking paint. Make.
Curved corners by tying a string to a stake that's equidistant to the edgescreating a compassand spraying the curves with marking paint. To determine how many blocks you'll need per row, divide the total length of the wall by the length of the block. To see how many rows you'll need, divide the ideal wall height by the height of the blockaccount for the first row to be halfburied. With the layout marked you can begin digging the trench. To bury the first row about halfway, dig the trench about 4 to 6 inches deep, and dig 12 inches wide, or twice the width of.
The block. If the trench slopes, you'll have to step up or down to keep the blocks level. Tamp down the dirt with a hand tamper and keep it level. Next, fill the trench with about 3 inches of paver base, spread it with a rake, and tamp it down. Tamping the base provides a strong foundation. When it's all level, you can begin installing the blocks. For row one, knock off the flange with a hammer and chisel so the blocks will sit flat. Beginning at the end with the lowest elevation, set the first block in place and check for.
Level. Then place the next block, making sure it's even with the first. Continue installing the first row, periodically checking for level. Fill in under low blocks with paver base, or tap down high blocks with a rubber mallet. After installing each row, sweep dirt off the tops. To start the second row you'll have to cut a block to stagger the joints. Mark it, and cut it with a masonry blade. Put it in place keeping the flange tight against the first row. Check it for level. When installing the next few rows, you'll need to add drainage directly behind the blocks.
Lay down landscape fabric behind the wall, leaving enough excess to reach the top. Then fill in directly behind the wall with gravel as you continue to build. For the last two rows of full blocks, apply concrete adhesive to the wall, then set the blocks in place. Now just fold the excess fabric back, and fill in with soil and plants. A plain garden bed gets a brand new personality with the help of a block retaining wall. Want more great ideas and howto's Go to LowesHowTo or just click to subscribe.
RAMMED EARTH BUILDING WITH ROWLAND KEEBLE
I was invited by somebody to go and build a house in Freetown, in Sierra Leone, and I was 2021, never built a house from beginning to end, never built an earth house, but just that leveling testosterone that tells you that you can do whatever you want. In a capital city with very little running water, very little electricity, very little petrol and managed to build a house. That's really where it start and I just haven't been able to let it go.It's ramming, rather than stroking, patting. We were consultants on the Wise Project.
At Cat, which is a 7 meter high, 15meter cylindrical building, it's loadbearing. It's in Wales, which is quite difficult place to work in, given that it never stops raining. We've just finished another four classroom blocks here in East Sussex and that was based on one that we finished in 2008 and we've also worked on one in Lincoln on fairly much same model. Children will go into those classrooms and learn in those classrooms and see that you can have an earth wall, without anything else in it, with no.
Cement in it and that it works and when they go off to study engineers or study architect or study surveys, they'll just have it inherently in them. For me if I had one building type that I was going to do now for the rest of my life, it would be schools. We're in a situation now, where 10 percent of our co2 emissions globally, comes from the production of cement and we're producing single double 3 and fourstory buildings using a vast amount of cement, and in this country we have to kinda get off the.
Mumford Sons Whispers in the Dark cover by Milktooth
Music You hold your truth so purely And swerve not through the minds of men This lie is dead This cup of yours tastes holy But a brush with the devil can clear your mind And strengthen your spine Fingers tap into what you were once And I'm worried that I blew my only chance music Whispers in the dark Steal a kiss You'll break your heart Pick up your clothes and curl your toes Learn your lesson, lead me home Spare my sins for the ark I was slow to depart.
I'm a cad but I'm not a fraud I set out to serve the Lord music But my heart was colder when you'd gone And I lost my head but found one that I love Under the sun Under the sun Under the sun Under the sun music But my heart was colder when you'd gone I lost my head Let's live while we are young While we are young While we are young While we are young While we are young While we are young While we are young While we are young While we are young.

Boston Moving Company Removing Stress
When my grandfather came over from Russia, he couldn't speak English and couldn't read and write. He learned all of that. He was pretty entrepreneurial and had his three sons, so he started delivering ice, in the south end of Boston, Harrison Avenue, because that is where they lived. And on horse and buggy. What ended up happening is people over time would say, Mr. Goldman, while you are moving that ice, could you take some furniture for me It morphed into a moving and storage company. They went through a couple of different places.
Where the Herald is right now one herald square was our first location, next to a taxi company and then they moved to Humboldt Avenue, which in the Thirties and Forties was a predominantly Jewish neighborhood and so the name Humboldt was taken up. It used to be H. Goldman Inc. because my grandfather was Harry Goldman and when they got to Humboldt Ave people associated them with Humboldt. Humboldt Avenue and that's where the name came from. Growing Up in the Business A Lifetime of Experience One interesting thing about my father my father.
Was a Depression baby. My grandfather almost lost everything in the Depression like everybody else, so my father grew up working seven days a week, three hundred sixtyfive days a year in fact, as I grew up, I never saw my father even on weekends he was working and as soon as I was old enough I became another piece of equipment for my father. He would literally come in at five thirty every morning pull down my covers pull up my shades and pull me out of bed and tell me we were going to work and literally when I wasn't in school.
I was working seven days a week because that's how we did it because my father had me doing everything. I swept floors. I checked in furniture. I worked in the warehouse. I packed. I loaded. I drove a truck and eventually I came into the office and did sales. I dispatched. I did the longdistance and local dispatching and eventually went out and did some selling and then took over and was actually running the company but it was a day that even when I was running the company that my father who at the time was seventyfive and still on the.
Trucks wouldn't say let's go, your on the trucks, let's get the job done. Even though we've been in business for a hundred and four years, one of the things we make sure we don't become a victim of is complacency you know just because we've been around a long time and we are a third generation family business doesn't mean that we don't think that we can do it better and our people are trained to fight complacency. We don't take anything for granted. I saythis before I tell our people all the time that our last move.
Could literally be our last move just because we did a great job in the past doesn't mean that going forward we're guaranteed, and so all our employees understand the importance of servicing the customers and making sure that we take care of their every need. We live the brand. It took us a couple years to come up with the relax and get moving and the whole idea about taking out stress and our whole employee team has bought into that concept. They understand that our job is to make it easy for the customer and make sure that.
They don't have stress. So whether it's our receptionist answering the phone within three rings and making sure that somebody on the phone doesn't have to wait, to getting a call over to our customer service team or our sales team, they make sure they get back to the customer. Then, once we promise to do the service, we show up on time, we do like we promised, we are within the pricing that we told and when we deliver it we make sure all the pieces go back together and I think that we do that really well.
