How to Build a Retaining Wall The simplest, cheapest, back-friendliest retaining wall in history
When building a retaining wall, lay perforated drainage tubing at the base of the wall slightly above ground level so runoff can drain out without undermining your wall
Instead of using stone or timbers, make an attractive, long-lasting retaining wall from pressure-treated 2x4s, plywood and trim boards. Construction is fast and simple, and the materials are much lighter to work with.
