Hi my garden (Manchester) has slope and there is no where to play for the kids. So I decided to sort it out. I am building a wall (not the trump wall!) and this would allow me to have garden at two different levels. I will fill one side of the wall with something (any advice welcome).

It has taken me 3 moths to dig and today finally I got the concrete poured in for foundations. I am thinking of using blocks to build the wall which is ~1m from foundation. Are the dense concrete blocks best option? Should I use 100mm or 140 mm blocks? Also should I leave a small gap between first row of blocks so the water escapes?

thank you for your kind help.
cheers,
