My first workday was to dig a 21 feet long trench of one foot deep and install eucalyptus wooden logs of 3 feet tall and with a diameter of ~9 inches.
After digging the trench, we installed about 14 feet long of the log retaining wall, followed by compacting the soil and ensuring that the logs are secured in place. My second workday consisted of installing the leftover 7 feet of the retaining wall, and dug 2 plant holes with the measurements of 2 x 2ft, followed by planting 2 Pride of Madeira plants, a native plant of California. On my final workday, we poured gravel behind the retaining wall for aeration purposes, uprooted non-native plants from the hill, layered the mulch on the hill and spread it evenly, and then leveled out the 21 x 4ft walking path.
