So I need to build a retaining wall in my backyard. The wall only needs to be 4' high, but needs to be about 50'-55' long. I also need to build some steps to access the upper yard. So I don't have the budget to pay someone to do the entire project. I'm thinking of having a contractor do the grading, deliver all the material, and lay out the first row of block. I would do the rest. Will contractors do that type of thing? Does that sound like a reasonable way to make the project affordable? Any other ideas?
