If they can do it ... can I?

If they can do it ... can I?
My front retaining wall's a mess, and the few estimates I've gotten so far have been pretty discouraging (too expensive, too cheap, too shady).

So when I came across this post showing a retaining wall re-stucco done right, I got a little burst of inspiration. Hey, maybe I can do this too! 

Anybody want to chip in with some advice? I've got a fairly long (30-40 feet) and high (4 ft) wall that either needs repairing or replacing. I'm thinking of power-washing it, putting up some wire lathe, and then re-stuccoing the whole thing.

Is this something I can do myself, or is it time to bite the bullet and pay a contractor?
