Sorry if this is dulpicating but not really getting a clear answer from some of the other topics. I'm looking for some advice on building some Brick Planters. Similar to to these
I've built foundations and building the walls out of normal 65mm bricks, but before starting i've spent a bit of time on the internet looking into construction plans and come across some horror stories about problems so I have some questions
1 - Do I need a DPC (My garden gets water logged during winter so worried about that)
2 - If my foundations are underground along with the first course of brick will i need weep holes or will a few holes drilled through the foundations be enough
3 - When I render over the bricks do I need something like K-Rend
4 - Do I need to render both inside and outside
5 - Should I also use a tanking slurry on the inside?
6 - Am I over thinking everything????? ARrrgghhh
From some of the other stories i hear on here people have had problems with moisture effecting the Render and Paint
Any advice would be welcome!
