Answer: 
You want to get the mason blades for the 7in circular saw and run a hose on it while your cutting. You could also rent a 10 inch saw with diamond blade. Works great.

We used a circular saw and a hose. You can rent a 10 inch saw that has a diamond blade and will cut right through it. We did a large wall with many angle cuts.

Answer: 
Always wear eye protection when cutting or splitting blocks. To split a block: Use a hammer and chisel to score the block on all sides. Pound the chisel on the score line until the block splits.

Answer: 
You don't have to setback the stones of each rising level. You can chisel off the the bottom lip of them if you want. I wouldn't do it if you plan to use this wall for soil retaining purposes. However, if you are making a fire pit for example you could definitely get away with doing so.

The inside diameter will be approximately 4’. To make sure your insert fits properly lay out the block and measure.

Answer: 
Another factor to consider is that there's an alignment edge on the bottom of each block. This means that each level is set back slightly (maybe a 1/2") from the level below it. So the top level can be 32" in diameter, but the levels below it will have increasingly larger diameters.

Answer: 
The smallest ring that can be made uses 12 stones (I only had 10 available, so I moved 2 from one side of the ring to the other to make sure they would fit). The inside diameter is 32" and the the outside diameter is 46".

Above 3 rows, I'd use landscape or construction adhesive to hold them together more carefully. I'd also limit how high you go to only what you absolutely need.

Answer: 
Pavestone walls use a lip system for locking the walls in place. Each block weighs roughly 22 lbs so the gravity of the stone holds it down and the lip locks it in place. You can use a caulk adhesive if you are worried about the blocks moving. If so, Pavestone recommends Quikrete adhesive.

I am looking for a block to build a retaining wall ~4ft tall. The specs on this page show a max build height of 2ft, but there are customer pictures of much taller walls. I need to get a permit from the city for this wall, which includes showing manufacturer specs for the materials I will be using. Are the specs on this page correct? Thanks!

Answer: 
I've successfully built a wall about 3 ft high with these. You have to use landscape/construction adhesive though on any level above 3 blocks though to secure the higher bricks and make sure you stay level. You also want your first stone to be buried pretty well in solid soil for a strong foundation.

You MAY be able to get three feet out of this brick but ONLY is you use geogrid to further stabilize the soil behind the wall. With the extra work and cost, it is hardly worth it. And with all walls, you will have provide proper drainage. Using this block for anything more than 2 feet and your looking at trouble down the road. Not heavy enough to counteract the numerous freeze/thaw cycles it will go through or the pressure that will build up behind the wall when it rains. You will probably end up having to pull it all down and restart from scratch after a decade.
As for height MANY jurisdictions limit you to 3 feet before you need a license BUT this varies from city to city. This also includes the base block that is buried under the soil so in reality, if you build a 3 foot wall, it will in reality be a 2.5 foot one when you take the base block into consideration (to be legal).Check with your building codes.
I am a simple DIY person, not a pro so take all my advice here with a grain of salt. If I were you, I'd look for a heavier block better suited for the task. Like Mike Holmes says, spend your money and spend it once! Read Less

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by my great wall and my water sanctuary I bought my house and it has an ugly hill in the back. I started building the walls four years ago under the heat of the Georgia summer. I cant help but admire the outcome our hard labor and patience. My neighbors and friends always come to the house to see the progress of the wall. I even built a koi pond in the front yard and flower bed along the side of the house for my azaleas. I am still buying this blocks right now due to ongoing huge patio project I am doing right now. The associates of my Home Depot store already knew me due to multiple trips there and they are very helpful to me. Hope you enjoy my post. November 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great product and easy to use. I used this product to front my garden. It worked beautifully! June 23, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent item I have used these stones to create a garden wall against my home, and recently changed the look and design. Hope you enjoy mi post April 8, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wall looks great My home is a ranch-style built into a hill so my front yard is very sloped, as is my front flower bed. I originally purchased about 50 bricks to wall off the steepest slope of the yard, and yesterday purchased another 60 blocks to finish the wall around the flower bed. As the other reviewers mentioned, the first row of blocks must be level for the wall to look right (don't just set them on your unlevel ground!). A small square shovel should help and a 36" bubble level. The walls aren't meant to be very tall, unless properly backfilled with supporting materials. They are pretty good quality (a little crumbly) and relativelty expensive. For 110 blocks it cost me $190 and some free time to build my wall. July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIY Fire Pit A few weeks ago, we got it in our heads to make our own firepit in the back yard. We cleared out a great spot and went to get the blocks to build it. The price was perfect! We were able to build a fire pit for under $100. And two store associates offered to help us load everything into the car. Once we got home, set up was easy, and we have had well over 10 fires so far and the blocks are still holding up great! May 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for DIY firepit I showed up at my local Home Depot and purchased 30 of these, then needed 9 more. No problem, they had plenty. I used these to make a DIY backyard firepit and they look fantastic. I paired them with marble stones for the bed of the pit, and it came out great in my opinion. Be aware of the lip on one side of them. I didn't realize it was there, and just forced me to adjust slightly to accommodate for it in the construction. July 20, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Improved Curb Appeal My wife asked for a flower bed in the front of our house. I knew what was involved and knew it would be a lot of work. The lot slopes quite steeply and I knew I had to build a retaining wall in the rear to contain the soil. With the help of a good friend, I poured a foundation and built a curved cinder block wall. Then I added these blocks. The lip on the blocks allowed stacking on the cinder block wall and we curved the wall to provide curb appeal. The project took several weeks and several pallets of blocks. The right hand wall took over 100 blocks alone. I continued the look with the flower bed on the left, edging the curved bed and topping it with top blocks to match the right hand bed. I added landscape lighting for our flower beds and a drip irrigation system that needs to be completed. Since then, we have used more blocks to edge the front beds by the driveway and around the Japanese maple. Right now, they are single layer and I ran out of the pallet of blocks. The blocks compliment the brick front of the house and add to the curb appeal. My wife and I have received many compliments from neighbors and passerby's. I am possibly planning on getting more to make the single layer blocks two or three layers to match the rest of the beds. My thanks to Home Depot for carrying these blocks and adding to the value of our home. May 15, 2012
