The next step is to prepare the base of your wall. Using an excavator, excavate the area to a depth of 8 inches. Then spread about 4 inches of gravel evenly in the trench, and use a rake to smooth the gravel out. Then use a power tamper to level the entire area. Lastly, make sure to level the entire area, and add or remove gravel wehre to necessary to make sure it is perfectly level.
Now we are going to lay down the remaining concrete blocks. Sweep away any debris from the first row of bricks and start stacking the second row, making sure to check the levels again all the way through. As with the first row, add crushed gravel to each block and also add crushed gravel behind the wall to cover the drainage pipe we added in step 4. Continue with each row until you have reached your desired height.
