Looks like I have some competition lately but this is a LITERAL wall of shame. Irony is that the 'landscape contractor' named this job 'The Great Wall'. First pic was their first try, next pic is their 'repair'. Also tried to screw the clients out of at least 20k- go figure. Fence in the background of pic 2 is mine........

Footing would've given them another thing to F up....... would have been even worse. Jackasses broke a skid steer windshield on attempt #1 then dropped one trying to disassemble that hit a planter and almost the client,(who was standing there wondering WTF).

Nice stone blocks too.

In the hands of someone who knew what they were doing, it’s could’ve been real nice.

Nice silver lining! Mason friend of mine said he'd fix it for free when he came to quote 'matching' patios and walkways. Said he couldn't handle even looking at it again...... and he's not capable of 'matching' that s*&t.

In the first pic I could have pushed the whole top course off by hand with minimal effort...... not as dramatic but the steps are sweet too- treads range from 11"-24".... I'll see if I have pics.

Just started a siding project.
Ive never seen this before and doubt that I ever will again. Who the heck sheets a house with foam board? Is this acceptable anywhere? Were tearing it all off and re-sheeting the whole house.
