What you don't want to see when you have a retaining wall!!

Notice the small white pipe coming out of the wall?  That is a drain pipe!  This pipe should run out past the house and maybe into the street.  The pipe you see here is not attached, so when it rains or a lot of water settles at the top of the wall, the water will drain out of that pipe and run into and possibly flood the back of your house and or penetrate into your wall cavities in your house from a crack in foundation.
