Severe slope in backyard, ideas?
If you are going to the trouble of putting in a retaining wall, I say it is better to put it as far back as possible so the more level portion of your yard is larger. The slope beyond the retaining wall will be steeper still.
And/or making the front part more level. To raise the ground surface, sprinkler heads will need to be dug up and extender tubes put under them but this is not as big a job as you might expect. The connecting pipes themselves can stay put.
The disadvantages of crab apple trees. In summer, the apples are too sour to pick and eat. In winter the birds come and leave dropping all over the place.
