Pavestone walls work both by interlocking and by gravity (gravity wall). They can be very easy and reliable walls as long as a few important steps and techniques are followed. First your land or track (subgrade) for the very first row of pavers needs to be compacted and very level both horizontally and vertically (front to back and side to side). Second you need to know how much weight might be imposed onto your wall. For example if your planning on parking a camper on top, then you should take more measures than just interlocking and gravity type retaining walls in Douglas County, CO.
Pavers and Keystones can be amended to withhold a lot of pressure. One thing to consider is rebar and concrete behind the walls. Concrete works well in Colorado because after 28 days as it cures, it will then, eventually, go into freeze thaw and it will crack. This will allow water to naturally escape out of the retained area and out through your keystone or pavestones. Secondly, you can use PL Adhesive or Landscape Block adhesive. As long as the blocks are cleaned and dry, and the glue is put on in big blobs (not in lines or zig zags) then this will work some-what well.
