Whats the best retaining wall to use with a clay bank
Behind the house I'm building (we are building in a hill) the land goes upward at at a 60 degree angle. It is terraced once. Up 7-8 feet, then flattens out then up again 7-8 feet. It is a clay. We are afraid of erosion as the whole area was cleared and there is no plant material at all in it and when wet it turns soupy. We don't want it to slide into the house. We were just going to sod it but I think we should have a retaining wall.
Also there are springs on the land and we are trying to ditch it properly as some water is running down over this bank and toward foundation.
