Small retaining wall
Prior owners put in a fire pit near my back tree line.

It’s on a slope in a shaded area, more or less no grass. I’d like to level it out some and make it a more enjoyable pit area.

Need some advice on a cheap option for a DYI retaining wall that will hold up. Probably would need to be a foot or two high at most.

Stacked rock ... it'll last so long they'll carbon date it 150,000 years from now.

Stack bags of quikrete and drive some rebar through the unopen bags. Wait for rain or hose it down.

I really don't care for pavestone or other pre-manufactured walls. They always seem sterile to me. A stone gravity wall looks much better IMO.

I’d do the stacked rock. Backfill it with some small aggregate to drain. Since it’s in the shade it will look nice with some natural moss growing on it.
