I'm working on a residential renovation where the concrete retaining wall at the steps from the sidewalk to the house has tilted, bigtime. The owner wants me to tell them to dig out behind it, shove it back into place, and tie it back (the plan from a local contractor) but I'm just not sure that will actually work, especially because the front wall along the sidewalk is also tilted. I've attached a picture of the existing situation and the sketch of the proposed repair. Any thoughts?
