Well there are plenty of posts on that subject if you look in the index, also look up retaining walls on the Internet which will give you all the info depending on how much of a retaining wall it's going to be against just a wall. Big difference and don't rely completely on a Thai builder to do it right. Walls can sometimes take a few years before falling over ,but they will go eventually if not built right. If you have access to the large blocks you will have no problems , just put in a WIDE foundation with the steel coming up as starters for the blocks which you put vertical as well as horizontal steel in all the way up to any future ground level, fill with a small stone concrete and it will never move.The soil on the wide foundation which is like a L into the wall gives it it's stability. What you do above ground level where it is just a fence is up to you.

You will probably find neither. For Geo fibre use shade cloth. For ag pipe start drilling holes or cutting slits in blue PVC.

But if you do find either please post the info.

A friend got some from Chonburi said they used miles of it on the new airport, if you or your friend/partner try google in Thai you might be lucky. For sure it is available but might be difficult to find in your area.

For ag pipe, drilling holes, or cutting slits (with an angle grinder) in PVC pipe is the way it's done most economically here. That's how I drain my land.
