That is a question that requires a detailed answer! Here is a brief explanation: the slope was excavated and the walls are built back into the hillside, up to 3' in width. they are back filled with rock (where the deck over hangs it and then the planting strip is in between) and the steel cages are filled with rock. Pretty secure that's for sure.

Thank you! I like the relatively low height and upright habit. Great work on this patio.
