Concrete driveway/barrier cost

    We just received an estimate of $1000, not to have a concrete driveway
    poured (we already have one), but to have a low wall (more of a curb)
    poured to line the driveway and prevent water from leaking onto the
    driveway from a berm (we live on a very sloped lot and need to have the
    wall built to route the drainage).

    The wall/curb will be 6 inches high and 6 inches wide. It will extend
    another 12 inches in the ground (with rebar) to hold back the water. It
    will be about 35 feet long.

    We have no idea how much this "should" cost (yes, we will be getting
    more estimates), and I'm sure no one has had the exact same thing built
    in their own yard, bu I would like some idea of how much it costs to
    have concrete work done in general. Thanks in advance!
