Answer / narendra
A retaining wall is a structure that holds back soil or
rock from a building, structure or area. Retaining walls
prevent downslope movement or erosion and provide support
for vertical or near-vertical grade changes. Cofferdams and
bulkheads, structures that hold back water, are sometimes
also considered retaining walls.
