PROJECT TYPE: GARDEN Wall

We were instructed to look at a 4 ½ inch brick garden wall that was in disrepair following recent collapse.

The decision was made remove the decayed structure and build a new 9 inch wall with 1 ½ brick pier at each end with intermittent piers along the length of the wall.

This would create a much stronger wall and improve the existing design.

A new footing was created to withstand the increased width and weight of the wall.

This was excavated using a mini digger and a one ton dumper truck to transfer the sub soil to an area where it could be removed from site. The remnants of the top soil was used to redress the ground once all work was completed.

The new wall was constructed of red facing brick (chosen by the client) and coursed at a brick gauge of 75 mm. The brick piers were capped off with concrete caps and the wall was finished with a header course of solid red engineering bricks to weatherproof the facing bricks.

Sand, cement and lime mix were used for the mortar and stretcher bond coupled with integral stainless steel wall ties were used to reinforce the bricks and bond the two leaves.

Several weep holes were strategically placed in the wall to allow drainage.
