Retaining walls are built in order to prevent subsidence. Retaining walls hold back earth which would otherwise move downwards. Their purpose is to stabilize slopes and provide useful areas at different elevations, e.g. terraces for agriculture, buildings, roads and railways. A basement wall is thus one kind of retaining wall. The walls must resist the lateral pressures generated by loose soils or, in some cases, water pressures
Garden Walls, Birmingham, West Midlands
Gardens Walls usually surround an aesthetic or fertile part of a garden or grounds and are used as either shelter or security.
