How many blocks do you need in a wall?


You want to  build a wall and need to figure out how many blocks are required?  Easy.

Take the lineal footage of a single run of blocks and multiply that by 0.75.  ( Lineal Ft x 0.75 = Answer)

Now you have the number of blocks per run.  Multiply that by the number of runs and you have your total blocks needed for the wall.
