If someone could please guide me how should I tackle this.. There is requirement to build a retaining wall around 1 meter high starting from the wall outside of garage.. and the contractor whom I have hired has advised me that he will bolt the C beam to the wall and put the sleepers in.. The total length of the wall will be around 7 meters.
As per my understanding it is technically not a good solution as the retaining wall will put its weight on the house wall and not on the base ( which should be around 1 meter deep ) .
The reason which my contractor is citing that he does not want to touch/ dig any portion next to slab as it may damage it... and also I think with stormwater pipes already in, he may be trying to avoid extra bit of work...
Any suggestions how this should be tackled as personally I want him to dig a hole ( 1 meter deep ) in ground next/ near to slab, pour concrete in and then put beam into it for sleepers to slide into it.

If you both have altered natrual ground level along boundary its fair to pay 50/50. If it was only one side that changed natrual ground level they sould bare all retaining costs.
