Retaining walls can be constructed from a range of materials including stone. Their function is to hold or retain a load of soil, typically on a sloped site. Stone retaining walls often provide structural stability on building sites where erosion is a potential problem, and also offer an aesthetic solution to a potential eye sore – an unsightly wall of soil. For any retaining wall to function efficiently it must provide drainage for any water that may build up against the wall. This has the potential to cause the wall to subside or collapse.
