Question: I need a small wall to keep the water from settling at the base of my deck

Answer: Do you need a wall or a curtain drain? If the water is coming from the yard and puddling on the deck, because it has no where else to go, a curtain drain will redirect the water and help keep your deck dry. A curtain drain is easy to install: dig a trench, place several inches of gravel in the bottom lay a perforated pipe on top, cover it with more gravel, then finish it off with topsoil. This will give the water a place to go (other than draining onto your deck). Hope this helps!
