[Progress.014] Getting Another Quote for Retaining Walls

We are getting another quote for retaining wall today, from the same trades person who is going to do the retaining wall for our neighbour. Lucky he was able to have his big machines here the other day to excavate our neighbour's backyard before our builder put on the fences.

What he recommended is either the "Keystone" or "Pyrmont" range from Boral. You can view it online from Boral web site here (Note: there's also a "Pavers and Retaining Walls - Your landscaping Guide NSW" on the same page which you might find quite helpful). I have copied a few photos below from the brochure:

Compared to the ones in sandstone blocks (I reported it here on 30/5), personally I still prefer the sandstone block retaining wall as it looks more special. Those Boral yellowish walls seems to be everywhere. Well, everything comes down to price, if the price is a lot cheaper, we might consider that as well. Have to wait and see...

Attached a few photos below for reference. Tell me, if it's you, ignoring the price difference, which one would you choose?

Doesn't look that good from inside, but as it's going to be covered by soil, who cares!
