 Garden walls / fences - PeterS
It's been another lovely weekend in W Sussex, and having finished my gardening tasks for today it's the perfect evening for sitting in the sun with a glass of something. So I am :) However, the best place for the sun this time of the day is also the place with the best view of the falling down fence... It's been like it since the strong winds at the beginning of the year. It's still standing, but it has an impressive lean and it's only a matter of time before it goes completely. The problem is, the posts have rotted in the concrete they're set in, so replacing just the posts will mean taking down most of the fence, digging out the concrete and re setting new posts. Or, take it down and put up a new one, staggered from the position of the original...

I actually prefer the look of a nice beech hedge, but not only will that take an age to grow we do already have more than enough to hedges to maintain already. So that does leave either fence or a wall. Trouble is, fences also require maintenance, albeit less frequently than hedges, which is why this post exists...

Does anyone know what the going rate for building a brick wall? Ideally 5 or 6, high? It'd need to be around 40' long, which is suspect is rather pricey. And for comparison what should I be paying decent fence of the same dimensions? All input appreciated :)

Thanks

Peter.
