You can get rainwater tank flower beds that double as retaining walls. These might come in handy for what you need and may reduce the cost. Your images aren’t showing https://www.landscapetanks.com.au/product/retaining-walls/ Thanks Mel for sharing tht option, wasn't aware of it at all and also abo...

How much higher are you intending to raise the house? Our garage is ~600mm lower than the house, for similar reasons. It can be useful, we've installed some shelving above the level of the cars, and stuff we rarely need to use is up there - meaning you can have storage on the sides PLUS be able to ...
As per the drawings we will be approximately 1.3mts high from the garage level. Thanks for the insights, in fact the bu...

From a long term perspective to maintain the value of your house - level the entire backyard as per Alfresco. This will mean one-time costs for excavation, removal, water drainage, retaining wall approvals and actual retaining wall. This retaining wall will be close to lot boundary. If lot access i...
