How does one treat a wall that is retaining (i.e. block work)?

Specify the construction of the wall and then set the Beyond the Wall setting to “Earth”.

Note that there is a rule that BERS has built in that there cannot be an earth bermed wall without a slab on ground floor connection.

In these cases, the recommendation is to change the wall connection to 'Shaded Air' to limit the solar absorption to the wall, which is a conservative approach.
