This is a fairly common construction for landscape architecture. The design tables for the Brick Institute, though not directly applicable to cmu, show a similar design. See Brick Institure of America, Technical Note 29A Revised (Sep 88). This may not meet UBC standards and may be questionable on seismic grounds though I can't see why not, but it works for wind loads. ted -- [Ted Partrick, PE Nothing I'm mailing is official, it is all ] [Structural Engineer personal.
