railroad tie wall

What foundation should you use under a railroad tie wall?

Howdy depending on the soils you may or may not need to have any. I would add crushed gravel if my soils were clay so drainage below the ties. But more important is the method of wall building. Be sure to use dead heads- in laying the ties installing sone perpendicular buried back into the soil to resist wall movement.
