How to Build a Retaining Wall

Some retaining-wall blocks have locking mechanisms that allow them to be built to about 4 feet tall without extra engineering. Because we used tumbled blocks with no locking mechanisms, we used a construction adhesive on alternate courses. Remember, with locking blocks, you can remove blocks and start over if you make a mistake. But adhesive permanently bonds blocks, so work carefully.
