Retaining walls

Posted by George on April 6th, 1998 03:00 PM

I want to build a raised patio (4 steps up from ground)
so that you can walk out of the kitchen directly onto
the patio (actually down 1 step from the kitchen/house).

I was planning on making a retaining wall with the wall
pavers that you see at home centers, and fill in with
gravel and sand and top it off with bricks.

My question is: I live in the north. Will this
construction stand up to the snow/ice thaw and freeze?
Is there a better way to do this?
