small retaining wall question

I was wondering what I should fill behind my retaining wall I'm going to put up. I'm going to use landscaping block 12w-4h-8d and the wall will be 40in tall and wrap around a small hill8 feet long. Would dirt be ok or should I use gravel?

Jimmy,
What will your wall be retaining? Going 40", you may want to use the larger blocks. In either case, use 3/4" washed rock behind the wall for drainage.
