If your property slopes, start the trench at the lowest point and step the trench up or down as necessary.
Each block lip should be in contact with the blocks below. Check each course with level before continuing and make adjustments with a rubber mallet. Repeat the process until you reach the desired wall height. To make a curve, use a hammer to remove the edges of the block lip.
For capping curves, trim the caps to follow the radius of the wall. Place a cap at the beginning of the curve, skip a space and place the next cap in the third position. Rest a cap on top of the original two, aligning the face with the adjacent ones. Mark the bottom of the cap along the edges (as shown in Step 5a). Use circular saw or tub saw with a masonry blade to cut the marked cap.
On a 90 degree corner, two caps need to be saw-cut to achieve a 45 degree mitered corner. At the end of the wall, cut the cap so the manufactured edge is exposed and the cut edge is against the next cap.
