Well to start previous owner had a wood tie wall that over the last 10-13years was failing and collapsing forward. Here it was beforehand

Also they previous owner had a stamped concrete patio installed incorrectly was not properly graded and no real sub base so it was also failing and causing the house to flood during heavy rain storms.

So I started down this path by first renting a Home Depot tractor and then rented another from private party locally.

So I got the wall ripped out and started tearing up the patio. But with limited time frame on the rental had also had bad rain while I had it rented turned into a mudbog even get the rental stuck for a little bit. So I decided to get my own tractor and picked up the 1025r.

FWIW, I never glued our top caps down. Looks today like it did in 2005-06 when we did it.
