Will I need footings??

I want to build a block wing wall five feet high by four feet long to serve as a screen for my a/c and pool equipment. The driveway is concrete. Do I have to saw cut the existing concrete and dig out for footers or can this small of a wall be laid on the existing slab? The wall will abut the house on one side.

Id say your ok there. But when you say screen for the AC condenser Id say thats a No No for sure. You need air to get to the unit. 18" form the unit or more and 36" from the workside to work on it.
