Retaining Wall To Level Yard. Haul in dirt to fill your yard to the level determined by your twine stakes. Additionally, retaining walls can help create usable outdoor space as well as control erosion, (see Landscaping a Split-Level Home.) Low retaining walls are frequently used as planting beds and can add interest to.
A retaining wall is a functional and fashionable way to create a level area on a slope for a flower garden or to prevent erosion on a sloped landscape. To keep the blocks on your retaining wall level and structurally sound, you need a base layer of several inches of well compacted, sharp gravel. They can even be multifunctional and provide a place to plant.
All that's left is to figure out how you're going to enjoy your newly.
You don't want to lift them twice.
Retaining wall blocks are really heavy. With your retaining wall now complete, you can paint or stain it to your taste. Build a retaining wall at the end of your property to the height determined by the final position of the twine.
