They are not an excluded structure under the homeowner's policy. However, all policies will exclude damage to a retaining wall caused by the pressure or weight of water whether driven by wind or not. As this, along with the deterioration over time (also an exclusion)are the most prominent causes of damage to retaining walls, there are not many covered losses for them.//
