How to hold the earth at the edge of a slope, with what materials?
It all depends of course on the terrain configuration, the degree of slope and many other parameters that I find difficult to appreciate from a distance. If the slope is light and it is to retain the land of an embankment, you can make a stone retaining wall inspired by our sheet. If it is a question of protecting a dwelling below a possible landslide, the realization of a retaining wall will have to be entrusted to a professional who will be able to make a study of the ground, to sink solid foundations in scraped concrete and to build a wall provided with a system of evacuation of rain water.
