Such a slight grade.
Based on the pictures you've provided - they don't need a retaining wall. The way I work my small business is I always look for other solutions before I sell them a wall. For a property like this I would only sell them a wall if no other solutions are viable.
I know you really wanna do your first wall, but this property doesn't need one. I would try sell them on a simple grading job first, they really do not need a wall. All a wall will do is cause the car doors to bang against it.
Take the lamp post out, and carve out the grade to taper to the asphalt. Have electrician come and plant a new lamp post when done.
