I would rather use a 300mm concrete gravel board and back it up with haunched concrete
sounds like a pig of a job, proper job would be a  a new foundation but as said not priced for
am I missing something  but isnt it the golden rule of fencing never to erect all the posts without the panels in? if slotted posts are used?
cheers LLL :)

Correct. Its a pain slotting them in afterwards, especially more so kn your own, however inhave designed a tool for doing it with ease :)

... Maybe the client wants it.

Precisely, it's what the client specifically requested. But yeah it would be a damn sight stronger than concrete gravel boards which are weak as piss and not really designed for terracing land at all.

I would have gone for what Tony recommended myself but they wanted what they wanted.
