We have kids and we've never worried about our retaining wall. (being
six inches from the fence, its not like the kids will accidentally
fall off it...) Even if we moved the retaining wall out to the
neighbors behind us, a three foot drop to grass wouldn't be concerning
We're talking about the border, not the high-traffic areas of the
yard. He'd even gain usable space by having fill dirt added to his
neighbor's border instead of having a 3 foot drop off which to fall
(only to break your fall on the fence top... ouch).
The neighbor may not wanna give up any of HIS flat space, is what I was
trying to say. Most subdivision back yards are not real big, since they
all went for the show-off front yards for the last forty years.
