hi--a very difficult question to answer online. In this particular house, the rockery was existing but we did install new plants and the new entry stair. The wall was engineered and the whole project was permitted with the City of Seattle. Your project is unique and would require a similar review by officials and professionals in your jurisdiction to determine what is feasible and allowed, esp. when dealing with steep slopes and retaining structures.
