This image shows how effective using moss rocks can be when landscaping new home front gardens on a very steep block.
While there are many types of retaining walls to choose from, moss rocks are capable of holding back significant amounts of earth and can be terraced effectively, allowing spaces for plants and shrubs to grow.
Bluestone steps were used to blend in and handle the severe sloping front garden giving the residents an easy way to walk down to the letter box and road.

You may also like to consider installing automatic sub-surface irrigation at the same time. It’s easier to install before backfilling with earth and mulch and you can better plan out where plants that need watering will be.
Having a budget in mind will also help supply you with different options.
Moss rock retaining walls can be one of the most cost effective ways to retain extreme sloping gardens, but depending on the amount of terracing involved, concrete railway sleepers or concrete block retaining walls may work out cheaper when landscaping your garden.
