semi retaining wall question


I have a question about putting in a semi retaining wall. the rear of my yard has a two foot retaining wall planter that has about 4 feet of space until my neighbor's property starts. I wanted to level my planter but my neighbors yard is still about a 8" higher, so I planned on putting some pressure treated wood in the rear of it to accomplish this. At first I was going to stack 3 - 6"x6"x12' to do this but wanted to know if I could use the 4"x6"x12' instead. I was going to stack those so one would be buried and 2 with the 6" side would be stacked making it 1' high.

Does that seem reasonable? I didn;t want to use the 6x6 since they cost about $12 more apiece and I would need about 18 of them...
