I’m looking at a little project to remove a (well existing) hedge that former part of our back garden when we bought a newbuild. There’s a fence behind the hedge. There’s a gradient drop to about 30cm below the current lawn level to the bottom of the fence.
I don’t want to just dig the hedge trees out and fill in with topsoil(etc) as it’ll all lay against the wooden fence directly.
Any tips or guides on what I could do? Do I need a retaining wall? Could I get away with laying some subbase somehow? Or should I layer up some sleepers?
The result should be a level continuation of the lawn.
