Here in the North East, many of the walls people are building are retaining walls. While all the principals of a free standing wall apply there are additional rules and methods to follow when building retaining walls. The focus needs to be on a sound structure that will last for generations. Local round field stone will be used for this wall. The rules and principals learned here can be applied to all retaining walls whether hand-built or those built with equipment.
