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.
Best wishes,
Jed

Could you level off the top half and use the spoil from that to level the bottom half?

I'm looking to do the same but we don't have much soil before we hit hard clay.
