hello, new member, first time posting, but I have been shadowing for a while now.
so I have a city house and am trying to make the most of the land I do have...
I have an idea that I am looking for advice on.
I have sloped back yard that I would like to level off to make more of a play space for my nephews.
I want to make a native bee/butterfly garden in the front. to help with pollination of my fruit trees, berries and garden. I did not know it was call permaculture I was thinking of it as "edible landscaping". put in perennials trees and suchlike that won't need massive amounts of work to supplement the family diet.
but I digress... in the course of some of my landscaping I have pulled up the yard sod.. and it's about 3-4 in thick.. I was thinking that I could use this build my retaining wall in the back... I know stacked sod can be used to build with sod houses and such like.
the retaining wall is short 2 feet or so. any ideas on how to keep the sod from falling over when stacked? props on the back side? or staked? has anyone build with sod? any advice would be great.
thank you all
