I will discuss the ins and outs of building walls of various materials retaining the landscape. In many parts of a building permit is required for retaining walls so check with your local building department before beginning work. My township as walls over 48 "in height require a permit, but best to check in all cases. There are many different types of TV furniture available on the market, and it's best to check out what is online and then visit the showroom. That means you should choose the website of a furniture company that has a showroom close to your home. You can then see it in real life and decide if it's for you or not. More intricate are TV consoles in the form of chests. There is a wide variety of these, fitted with cupboards and drawers, or a combination of glass doors and open shelving to accommodate not only the TV equipment and boxes, but also hi-fi equipment. These are still individual pieces of TV furniture that can be situated anywhere in the room - either against a wall or in an island situation, a common position being a bay window or alcove. Wheelbarrow, sledge hammer, tape measure, pencil, chalk line, level, 60 points penny 3/4 "electric drill, wood drill bits, extensions, 7 1/4" electric saw, carbide blades not cheap, sharp and shovels square. You'll also need proper equipment to save additional loose fill your wall as you go. 3/4 "gravel works best. Several pieces of 2" or # 4 or # 5 rebar cut 24 "long. Pin bars, pickaxes, hammers electric demo can all be great additions to make the job easier. If we look at individual pieces of TV furniture first, we can then see how that might be expanded in a more general form of entertainment furniture or leisure unit, so as to make the best use of the wall space you have available. Very few homes have no wall space free, and if even if not there is usually some form of existing wall furniture that can be replaced to incorporate television furniture. The Paula Deen Down Home entertainment console is a case in point. You can build this 126W x 84H inches unit from four pieces: a console, a TV hutch and two side display units. You could add to this over time to extend it over the whole of one wall if you wanted to. The same is true of large numbers of entertainment units: start with one piece of TV furniture, then slowly add to it until you have a complete entertainment center you can be proud of. The reason for the popularity of entertainment wall units is simply that they take up wall space, and have minimum impact on living space. They also accommodate more than just the TV, and while it could be looked on as TV furniture with display options added, most regard it as a wall display unit, and perhaps bookcase, that includes room for the TV! There are two ways of looking at it. There are many, many types of retaining wall materials available today. Field stone, ties, pressure treated ties, brick, interlocking block masonry that looks like stone, brick, and so on. Different types require slightly different methods of installation, but all have some of the same basic concepts. You must start with a good solid ground below. Do not try to build on top of topsoil, wet soil or other material soft and pliable soil. Your wall will simply move with the destruction of the earth and self over time. If you are dealing with soil or soft ground, it will be necessary to dig and remove the soil to a foot or two below ground level, setting up a good gravel base material or under the section, compaction, then build your wall over this. A good sub-base will provide you with many years of retaining walls looking with very little maintenance. In my area, a wall less than 4 'tall is considered part of the landscaping. Over 4 'tall, construction services and wants a permit drawings. Check with them before you build your wall. Tiered retaining walls can create great garden spaces. A seating area and flower gardens can be created in this way too. The TV furniture could be acquired first, and then you could expand the rest around it as you could afford it. It is better building slowly using good quality furniture than buying an entire wall-full of cheap furniture at once. The high quality pieces will match each other no matter when you purchase them. That's one of the benefits you pay for when buying high quality entertainment or television furniture. This year's purchase matches last year's. Then, space permitting, there would be display shelves for curios or ornaments and perhaps even bookshelves. Now you can possibly see where a TV stand can be incorporated into your wall space, even if you have existing wall furniture in place. You could combine that or change it. Most people would purchase from new, and if you choose the right range of furniture you can do that in stages.
