Retaining wall

February 14, 2012 Leave a comment

I am trying to figure out what to do about the retaining wall in the cut behind the house. Since the lawn behind the house contains the drip irrigation from the septic system, it’s a requirement to have a plastic retaining sheet, so you don’t get foul water seeping out of the bank.

Lana suggested trying to incorporate flower beds to catch and use any rainwater run-off from the lawn, and prevent the water getting to the house. Here’s an idea I came up with. I just don’t know what to cover the plastic sheet at the top of the cut with? Maybe slate? Or small think pieces of limestone?
