With a block wall that's more than 2 blocks high, I like to brace them so that when I push on them they don't fall over. So that I'll do is do a couple of blocks every 20' or so to prevent the wall from getting out of plumb even if I smack it with equipment on the other side.
Tomorrow I'll write up my pig barn idea using ecology blocks.
These blocks are $15 each, and it cost about $7 a block to have them delivered. The backhoe rents for $260 a day, or $1k/week. Takes about a day to build a 60'x6' block wall, with careful placement of the initial course of blocks.
