Landscape Gardening Question
Is there an inexpensive way of retaining the earth on my side of garden so it doesnt continue to slip into next doors. My garden is higher by 3' and we used to have shrubs between us but (its a long story) we dont anymore. With all the wet weatehr its making the earth too wet to hold in place and I need to do something on the cheap - as its not my border but it is my problem.
thanks in advance
I don't know your price range but you can use old railway sleepers or you could use small concrete fence posts with gravel boards in between.

My advise would be do it right the first time and it will last a life time.
Maybe a block wall, brickwork or even a shuttered concrete retainer.
eventually wood will rot and it is not maintenance free.
Good luck with what ever you decide
