    Welcome to TFP!

    Only if you properly backfill and compact it and make the retaining wall strong enough.

    I would be afraid any fill will settle over time. We had a slope at least as deep as yours and I dug it out with the tractor so there was no fill at all. Wasn't fun, but I'm not worried it will sink either.
