Breeze block retaining wall - Bricklaying job in Sevenoaks, Kent

Job description

  • Build a retaining wall

Customer description

I'm looking for someone to carry out the initial work on a patio extension. I need a new retaining wall put in, built with breeze blocks as the finish will be render at a later date. Total width approx 15m. 2m gap to be left for steps centrally and walls to return 1m either side. (hope this makes sense with the rough sketch attached too). Professional opinion required on the necessary wall height/depth. I expect approx 1.8m, 500mm below ground, 800mm change in level and 500mm above patio. I've already had a trench dug where the new wall will be, might need a bit more taking out but not much. Then it may need a concrete backfill for reinforcement - once again will need your professional opinion on whether necessary. I'm not looking for a finished product as the whole property is undergoing work and I'll finish the patio at later date. I just need the heavy work done so I won't need any plant round the back later on. Ideally left as a bare block wall and backfilled loose rubble to the patio for now. Happy to meet and discuss further.
