Our yard has a small slope to it, and we wanted to make it level. (Mainly so we can put a swing set in for our kids.) I was thinking I could build a small retaining wall and just fill it in, but would that pose a problem since it would be along an existing fence? I would rather not have to move that :)
I know it would essentially make the fence shorter on our side and I am OK with that, but are there any other reasons why it would be a bad idea.
If it isn't going to be a problem, what should be used as the wall? Are cement blocks OK?
Picture as requested. I played around with the best angle to show the slope. I was thinking about cement blocks lined up along the fence to even out the slope and back filling dirt to the top of those (18 inches at the deepest).
