Hillside terracing with garden blocks

Got a corner of back yard which I want to terrace with garden blocks.

Anyone have knowledge to share on engineering a safe structure?

The corner is probably 10feet above yard level and a radius of maybe 15 feet.
The slope extends to the left and right in neighbors yards beyond fences.

I think I want to use the large garden blocks to build walls about two feet in height each up the hillside. Does this sound safe if I can get a couple feet of flat area beyond each wall into the hillside?

Thanks for all your input, it's really appreciated.

You'll have to state a brand name and product. Saying simply "the large garden blocks" doesn't tell use anything about what you want to use. Also some photos of your site would be helpful.

Pavestone 15.5 in. x 12 in. x 6 in. Tan Concrete Retaining Wall Block-82105 - The Home Depot


Thinking about these in concentric arcs up the corner hill in that picture, 2' high each retaining wall with 3 feet flat above and 18" supporting the slope at the top. Not sure how to do the edges along those fence lines, however.

The slope measures 10.5' high, 20' slope ~45 deg thus 10.5' high.
