Drystack retaining wall vs. traditional mortar and block retaining wall

The premier episode of "Concrete Combat" pits the traditional method for building a concrete block retaining wall against a new approach using a surface-bonding cement over a dry-stack block wall. Both walls are judged on neatness, cost, and ability to withstand blows from a sledgehammer after curing.

The winner of the Concrete Combat retaining wall challenge moves on to the semi-finals, and the loser goes home.
