What are you building with your backwards brick?
Well, we need a new fence, long overdue, but the fence sits on and just behind the garden wall. Only a small wall, but a lot of bricks. Unfortunately our lovely flowering cherry tree, prunus Kanzan
, sent a couple of roots under the wall and over years, jacked a section of the wall up, and how.. For the new fence, now ordered, the wall has to be straight and level. And hopefully plumb, but that may be another matter. Old walls are never perfect, not on our sandy soils at least. So I strip the wall section to foundation level and build up.
And the side gate got vandalised so I had to source two old capping "stones"- clayware- and rebuild the brick pillars each side. A new iron gate has been ordered to replace the old wooden one.
Okay I bet you're sorry you asked now.
I will essay some pix later, if it doesn't turn out too shabby.
