All, I am looking to build my own retaining wall soon with some pretty basic dry stack blocks. My retaining wall will contact my driveway at a perpendicular angle. I would like the top of my retaining wall to be at the same height level with the driveway at this point. As my retaining wall extends in the direction away from the driveway, I would like to keep the top of the wall at this level. My yard gradually slopes down as you move away from the driveway. Everywhere I have been reading, states to start your retaining wall at its lowest point. My question is if I start at the lowest point, which is about 60 ft from the driveway, how do I ensure that the top of my wall is at the same level as the driveway as I build towards that direction? Would I be able to start constructing the wall next to the driveway and build away from the driveway, basically building the wall from its highest point? If I have to start at the lowest point, what steps do I have to take to ensure the top of my wall is at the same height as my driveway?
