Retaining wall, sloped flower bed, help


So I have been battling this for the past 3 years since my wife and I moved in.
I'll list problems/ ideas.
-mulch we put down washes down over rocks as well as soil.
-rocks constantly need to be reset due to falling I'm guessing from water and gravity.
-neighboor behind us is higher so his pebbles behind his garage which backs up to the fence constantly wash thoughRetaining wall, sloped flower bed, help-uploadfromtaptalk1433691677610.jpg.
- I am thinking of making it tiered...
-I like the rocks thought of mortar but seems too much.

Any ideas or thoughts?

I would build a small retaining wall very close to the fence using those 8x12 stones from Lowes or HomeDepot. I would take the time to put a level compacted crushed stone footer under it per MFG. instructions. I would build it 2-3" taller than the bottom board of his fence.

The stones will allow water to pass and stopt the rocks and other crap.

Mid redesign....

Any thoughts?

Any tips for securing the rocks in place short of sloping them back into the dirt?
