Retaining walls are typically made of wood (railroad ties), concrete, stone, steel, brick or masonry. Design styles are as endless as the materials used to build them, and can be used for everything from mailbox planters to tiering an entire home. Retaining walls serve several useful purposes:
Provide stability for structures
Create usable lawn space

Tiering sloped yards
Build freestanding features such as outdoor kitchens
