By definition, a retaining wall is a structure that is used for supporting the soil mass laterally, so that the soil on different sides of the wall is retained at different levels. Retaining walls also serve the purpose of adding curb appeal to your home and increasing its value. If your property rests on uneven grounds and you want to keep rock and soil back, a retaining wall is a great solution.
Retaining walls can be made out of many different types of products including (but not limited to): concrete blocks, stone, poured concrete, brick and wood. Retaining walls can vary in cost based on your project. There are many aspects to building a wall: drainage stone, filter fabric, batter, weeping holes, footings and footing drains. All these terms can be very confusing for your average do-it-yourselfer.
