stacked stone retention wall


Anybody try this themselves? I'd like to do a small one, 9 inches tall at the highest. I assume this wouldn't be that hard to pull off on my own, but wanted to get any tips that might be had on this board.

Not hard at all. But you should level the stretch of dirt you want to lay the stone then use a crushed lime stone as a base and possibly use a small amount of mortar between the stones so they don't shift and fall over. Even though it's 9" tall you don't want to hassle with that ever year.

start with the bigger pieces you can find and place them a few feet apart. then in fill the gap. You may want to mortar the last row as they will be the one to move first over time.
