Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by aimee 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by brybaker 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MorganRealtor88 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by superbario 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MagicBill 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.
