Hello everyone. I have a landscape design issue. I have a wooden fence around my backyard. Inside the fence there's about a meter of yard that inclines down to the fence from a patio space. This patch is about 20 meters long along the fence. I don't know what to do with this patch of yard. I do know I need to remove the dirt around the fence so it doesn't rot the wood.
I've been thinking of creating a retainer wall to hold back the dirt away from the fence. This would leave about half a meter of gardening space. I would then fill in the gutter with rocks. Or should I make the incline steeper by digging the dirt away from the fence? What would be best for the fence not to rot so easily?
