Going to add a patio to step out onto from new big doors. I need to (I think) build a 2 course retaining wall for patio to suit levels I have. I need about 4mt long wall close and parallel to wall below door sill. And a short wall forming L shape from that to act as step to patio. As I won't see the 4mt wall, I hope a cheap concrete block solution will suffice. I was going to leave the gap between retaining wall and house empty, it shouldn't need clearing often and the door sill should form a lip over the gap. Any comments on this, spec for wall foundation etc? Thanks in advance.

you need some guttering covers along the gap, not sure what they are called though.
