      • hello ,but the rocks formes here in the lagoon are made from the mud and salt water .if this get hard can i doit?

    • Where on the island is this project? Double bagging and Bag placement and plumbness could be the key to stability, I would also recommend larger bags several courses up as a stemwall.

      • i am thinking about tires full of gravel for basement ,big tires like 2 feet wide 2 rodsand then the bags if the test of endurance work
