Default Retaining Wall

To a fair approximation, you have about 1,000 sq ft of "wall" you want
built. Your contractor has quoted a price of about $40/sq ft.

That seems a bit on the high side.

First step is to find the cost drivers. Possibilities a 1)
contractor greed in his hoping you don't get other bids; 2) cost of
materials; 3) basic cost of installation.

Frankly, I would take a second look at those stackable concrete blocks.
The material cost for the wall itself (the foundation/base would be extra)
would be on the order of $4k. They "come in colors" and you can mix and
match to create either a patern or a "random" look.
