Storage Shed Retainer Wall
I am getting a new shed and the spot I choose is unlevel. I already cleared the ground to make it level. The problem is the one corner is 3 feet below grade. I was wondering if I could just fill it in with stone and place a barrier over the dirt on the hillside to protect the shed walls. The exterior of the shed is vinyl siding.

Not a good idea to bury a wood frame 3' below ground

put piers on the low end and divert h2o on upper side

What would you suggest then...A retainer wall built with 6x6 or stone?

Solution depends upon the landscape
I'd probably split the depths & raise the 3' end up & build up the other end
Then maybe landscape timbers
Any pics ?
