Following a landslide, this is part of a description of the property affected:
Gårdsplassen ut mot skråningen er fylt opp mot en enkelt *rad* med stor stein, disse står nå på toppen av en ca 2 m høy raskant som har utviklet seg de siste ukene.
Don't get it, lack of knowledge, etc. - advice very much appreciated.

The property is lined with a row of big stones, that now sits on top of the slope left by the landslide.
Or a line of big stones perhaps, but I think a row sounds better.
