Patio against retaining wall

I know how to make a retaining wall. I need to make one in my back yard in order to build a stone patio. My question is how do I lay the brick next to the retaining wall to secure it properly. Do I apply the top cap of the retaining wall with adhesive and then but the pavers against that?

Re: Patio against retaining wall

how tall is your wall going to be, will your patio be above or below the wall?

It will be about 3 feet in height and the patio will be above the retaining wall.

You could either glue on the cap and make the cap a little taller than the patio, this would make the water run the length of the wall, or you could make the patio the same height as the top of the wall allowing the water to run off the edge of the wall. hope that helps?
