    Hi, I'm looking to Stucco this retaining wall. Prepping to sell home and thought Stucco would be cheap and effective way to dress this up. Any ideas on how to? Also, how to put easy and effective design in? View attachment IMG_20160831_115114986.jpg

    Welcome to the site, If I came looking at the house I would want to see that, that is a good strong concrete retaining wall with out cracks and or other damage. New stucco would leave me wondering about the wall and the quality of the stucco. But that is just me.

    I'd try pressure washing it before I did anything.

    I have seen the top capped with the Allan block type caps to make it look a better.

    Others will be along.:)

    After cleaning, a coat of paint might be enough to satisfy your need.
