A raised bank of earth having vertical or sloping sides and a flat top: turning a hillside into a series of ascending terraces for farming.

One landscaping solution to a sloping lot is to break the slope into a series of flat areas and construct retaining walls to create the vertical elements between the flat areas. This allows the gardener to have beds for shrubs, trees or other plants.
