I see there are glues out there for retaining wall blocks? Should they be used? The blocks I will be using so not 'connect' in any way - but I have built walls with them before with no glue.

Hi pgrennan,

You don't have to use an adhesive for gravity wall units, but it's a great precaution. I would consider putting a dab of glue on every other or every third block, mostly on the last couple of courses. I always clue my top course if I dont have caps, and if I do have caps, I always glue my caps. It's safer.
