What do you need to know about garden wall building or repair?

If you are considering having a garden wall built, consider its specifications. How high do you want it? How long? How thick? Consider materials as well. Certain bricks are cheaper but have a lot less visual appeal. For a properly installed wall initial work is necessary. Any existing fence panels will need to be removed, the ground will need to be prepped and foundations fitted. You will also need to consider waste removal. You can do this yourself to save a lot of money, though depending on the waste materials you may prefer to let your tradesman add it to his quote.

When it comes to costs, there is much more variance than average depending on whether or not you live in London. Straight walls are simple, but curved walls will take longer and may require tradesmen with higher skills. On average having a garden wall built will cost you several hundred pounds, though getting multiple quotes will ensure you get the best value for monies. There will be added fees depending on the level of access to the garden, and make sure you inform your neighbour of your plans and where the wall will be placed: putting it a foot in the wrong direction can easily results in a boundary dispute. With regards to planning permission, this should not be necessary unless the wall is over two meters high or if it adjoins a road or footpath. The cost of repair work will vary depending on the necessary work. Repointing the bricks can be expensive if you have it done professionally, so again seek multiple quotes. If the repair job is very minor, be aware that you will be charged a minimum fee.

A garden wall can be built by a bricklayer and labourer team in a few days. Whoever you decide to go with, take the time to look over their qualifications and experience. Check customer feedback from their previous jobs, and ensure that they are adequately covered against accidental damage and liabilities.
