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

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 ?
