Is it okay to put a raised retaining wall flower bed against my foundation?
My idea is to build a 3 tier flower bed using retaining wall blocks in front of my concrete block foundation.
The first level of block will be about 8ft from the foundation and be about 5 in high. The second level will be about 6 ft from the foundation and consist of a 9 inch high retaining wall and the last level will be about 4 feet from the foundation and consist of a 12 inch high retaining wall.
Will the “step up” design allow for enough drainage away from the foundation or will the layers of retaining wall keep water in?
It’s basically going to look like this but made out of retaining wall block.
