Retaining Walls come in different shapes and materials but serves primarily as a barrier to retain soil and thus prevent flooding and erosion. A retaining wall is always anchored to resist pressure from water or soil flow. It can also act as a method of drainage with proper channeling away from landscaping or sensitive soil areas.
Retaining walls are not only used in water as Bulkhead or Sheet Piling (typically constructed with cement, steel or wood), but also as a beautification feature using layered rocks in landscaping—to provide depth to an area or terrace for planting of shrubbery, trees or gardens.
