If you measure 8 metres along and then 2 metres high this area will be aproximately 1000 bricks.

1000 bricks will cover approx 17 square metres, this is on a 100mm bed, half it for a 225mm wall.

hi, 1sq linear meter is 13.3 bricks high and 4.4 meters long, so this equates to 58.5 bricks per meter, this means a thousand bricks will cover 17 meters in 4 inch work or 8.54 meters in nine inch work.many thanks vince

We calculate a m2 area of brickwork at 60 bricks , this works good upon estimating and allows for waste.

You'll get 60 bricks to a m2, so a thousand bricks would come to 16.6 m2 hope that helps.
