Can you build a wall with pavers?
Lay the rows of the pavers to build the wall up to the desired height. It should be a zigzag bead of pavers with adhesive on top of each layer of pavers to provide added strength to the wall. The top of the wall should also be sealed with the adhesive to fill the joints.
How high should a patio wall be?
Build the Wall
A comfortable sitting height for a wall is 18 to 24 inches, including capstones. Most cast concrete stones are heavy enough to stay upright without help. But for safety’s sake, you should glue down at least every other course—and certainly the capstones—with construction adhesive made for stonework.
What is the easiest retaining wall to build?

How do you lay pavers on top of concrete?
Lay the field pavers over concrete as you would on any paver patio. Scrape away the excess sand and cut off the excess landscape fabric with a utility knife. Glue down the last border patio blocks. Let the glue dry for a few hours before you tamp the field pavers and sweep sand across the patio to fill the joints.
