    I have no idea what anything you said meant but I do know a great job when I see it.

  2. Gary Ritter on November 8, 2021 at 10:54 am

    must cost about $15,000.00 to make.

    what is the type of fiber mesh and where do you buy it ?

  4. Teal Kerberus on November 8, 2021 at 10:58 am

    I really like this. Do you go bigger? I’ve been watching people build raised beds from timber and steel, but they’ve got a life expectancy of 5-20 years tops. I reckon concrete would do it better!

    How long had your concrete set before removing the top board?

    HUGE TYPO in your thumbnail…!!!

    Are you using aggregate and lime in your mix?

  8. JayB on November 8, 2021 at 11:03 am

    Beautiful work as always, question using the motor oil does it leaves a oily smell if so i guessing it fade over time.

    What’s the concrete mix

  10. mr on November 8, 2021 at 11:08 am

    Nice work but autofocus left chat

  11. R R on November 8, 2021 at 11:09 am

    I do not understand the purpose of have all that soil, root, shadows and moisture against the foundation of a house. Looks great!

  12. Bo Cung on November 8, 2021 at 11:14 am

    I got dizzy watching the first few minutes of the video.

  13. Mattie Fattie on November 8, 2021 at 11:14 am

    4 years later this is exactly how I want to make my retaining wall

  14. gvndual84 on November 8, 2021 at 11:14 am

    I’m getting ready to build something similar. How long did you wait before removing the top boards exposing the cantilever and cleaning those edges?

  15. Bob D. on November 8, 2021 at 11:14 am

    I wish you guys were in my neck of the woods. I would get you to build about 150 feet of this in my yard.

  16. Laura Couto on November 8, 2021 at 11:15 am

    Muito Obrigado! Vou partilhar
    Por favor – quantos minutos – para se poder retirar as tábuas de cima?

    Qual o traço da argamassa? Ou seja, quantidade de areia e cimento?
    Tipo de areia?
    Obrigado

  17. Dan Williams on November 8, 2021 at 11:15 am

    Music ugh

  18. Kristal Goodell on November 8, 2021 at 11:15 am

    Thank you for the helpful videos! When building this style of wall, do you need to go below the frost line to prevent cracking, or is it low enough that it isn’t necessary? Thank you!

  19. FOH...NowGit! on November 8, 2021 at 11:17 am

    Wow 😮

  20. Jeremy Fugarino on November 8, 2021 at 11:17 am

    Nice Work. I prefer to lay blocks for my beds. No mortar or anything. I prefer that over concrete due to future changes my wife and I may make. Much easier to make changes to size, H/W of beds. Just makes things easier to remove or add to. Nothing permanent so to speak

  21. Joshua Rogers on November 8, 2021 at 11:21 am

    How long did it setup till you removed the top 2×6?

  22. Robert Skinner on November 8, 2021 at 11:23 am

    How much taller and longer can you make one of these before the mass of concrete is a curing problem? Thinking of this technology to make a retaining wall because I don’t relish carrying bricks down stairs and I can build the forms over a long period and have it poured in and a vibrator brought to bear. Had considered curves but here can do a > 90 degree corner and monuments.

  23. nafstap on November 8, 2021 at 11:23 am

    I know this video is 4 years old, but how much would something like this cost today?

  24. Gibonz on November 8, 2021 at 11:23 am

    Thanks for the video. I will attempt something similar myself.
    How long after the concrete is poured in should the formwork be removed?
    Thanks

  25. lena ely on November 8, 2021 at 11:23 am

    👍🏁🌞

  26. Rasmus Olsen on November 8, 2021 at 11:24 am

    What a nice and beautiful work. 🇫🇴🇫🇴

  27. Cloi on November 8, 2021 at 11:24 am

    Beautiful 🤩!!! Love it !! How mami bags of concrete mix I need to build one like that?

  28. bozobennett on November 8, 2021 at 11:26 am

    You make it look so easy! And, I know it’s not…good work!!

  29. John Orla-Bukowski on November 8, 2021 at 11:28 am

    Thank you, David for taking the time to share your knowledge and experience in all these concrete videos. You do a great job explaining your choices/decisions along the way as well as providing insights and tips to help others. I am learning a lot and am grateful!

    A question regarding the height of this planter: would you need vertical rebar every 16" or so to support a 20" high wall?

  30. Bill coley on November 8, 2021 at 11:28 am

    I’m curious to how much a job like that pays because I think I see 4 people working. I just wouldn’t think you could charge a ton.

  31. I like Sundays on November 8, 2021 at 11:28 am

    very pedantic. Impressive

  32. How stupid you look. on November 8, 2021 at 11:29 am

    Cantilever cap.. monolithic pour..

  33. southern tommygun on November 8, 2021 at 11:29 am

    This is great work and a well documented tutorial. Thank you.

  34. Cheryl Oldford on November 8, 2021 at 11:33 am

    I really enjoyed watching your video, so well made. Really strong ……..my husband is shouting at me saying..”Dont even think about it Cheryl, let the men do the work” . Vibrator 😲😳🤪 that along with “cream” i had to laugh, its like a Cement Porn Video 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Cheryl from UK 🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

  35. Pete Joseph on November 8, 2021 at 11:34 am

    Good clear instructions, interesting content, glad I watched

  36. Henry Vargas on November 8, 2021 at 11:34 am

    Sick ass FINISHERO hands down 🙌🏽

  37. Puente family on November 8, 2021 at 11:35 am

    Please make a video with all the trowels you use. Thank you

  38. Tristan Camacho on November 8, 2021 at 11:36 am

    Can you re use the wood forms for a raised vegetable garden bed??

  39. Jessica Danchik on November 8, 2021 at 11:38 am

    I just started watching your channel last night because I want to build a short decretive wall in my back yard. I saw this video and the one you did for the guy who was "energetic" and wanted you to do things very specifically, you used block to build the wall. Whats the difference between using block and pouring the whole form? is one more expensive less work more work? what would you recommend for short long border wall in the garden? Thanks! Your videos are so helpful! I have never done anything like this and never understood how cement works and your videos are just so informative! I live in the Middle East and so I don’t have anyone to ask about it all, that can explain it. So thanks!

  40. FYI this is not rocket science on November 8, 2021 at 11:42 am

    try to 45 the top edge of 2×12 with the bevel edge in and the point top outside of 2×12 will make for easier form pulling.

  41. theckolio on November 8, 2021 at 11:43 am

    Hey great job I’m a big fan of yours! I’m just curious how much does a job like that cost?

  42. SketchItReal on November 8, 2021 at 11:44 am

    Great job! Here I was getting ready to use stacked retaining wall stones (the small ones) to build a flowerbed, like this much better. As my flower bed will be up against a wooden fence, what would you suggest to protect the wood fence from the soil backfill? I have pressure treated rails at grade and at the flowerbed height. Corrugated metal, visqueen, or something else?

  43. Misael Escamilla on November 8, 2021 at 11:47 am

    you guys make good projects and good finished of the jobs , keep showing good videos. congrat.

  44. Peter Stevens on November 8, 2021 at 11:47 am

    Kia Ora from Auckland, New Zealand…

  45. Michael Fetch on November 8, 2021 at 11:48 am

    Great video. I’m going to use this technique to build a fire pit. Question though, how long after you poured the concrete did you start to remove the 2×6’s? Thanks and keep these vids coming.

  46. phung lung on November 8, 2021 at 11:48 am

    How much that cost

  47. thomas walsh on November 8, 2021 at 11:50 am

    Nice to see a craftsman at his trade.

  48. Tenth Dimension on November 8, 2021 at 11:53 am

    Anyone have a link to Part 2

  49. Rico S on November 8, 2021 at 11:53 am

    David, have you ever done this any taller? I’m thinking about doing this for my driveway retaining wall, 4 foot tall then doing it again above it in a tiered fashion. This looks awesome 👌.

  50. Suhardi Harun on November 8, 2021 at 11:54 am

    please dont use camera put on your head…make me dizzy and almost vomit
