    Hire a designer from your area. This could be a fabulous project if done right and a nightmare if done wrong.

    Well I was thinking of retain walls and staircases. Where can I look at some finshed projcets to get a general idea to complete this? I am the home owner therefore my buget is open as long as it will be a nice finish.

    I don't think you'll get much in the way of design ideas here. We're all professionals trying to make a living and learning from each other on this site. You should take the above advice and hire a professional who can give his/her expert opinion in person. A decent company should have a portfolio of pics with them when you meet, but it doesn't hurt to ask them to bring some pictures of work they've done when you call. Also, check references and ask to see some jobsites of recent work. If his pictures and actual workmanship don't line up... RUN!
