Building your own retaining wall is another great way to save lots of money. Retaining walls are good projects for do-it-yourselfers. Retaining walls can be built with a variety of materials, including some newer synthetic wall units. You will need to be up for some physical exertion lifting, digging and moving stones, planks or wall sections. And you will need to pay attention to soil settling later requiring additional filling, but a retaining wall is a project you can certainly handle.
