    Hi

    I'm rebuilding a wall that's started to collapse and need to get in some sand/cement to rebuild. Any thoughts on how many bags I'd need to buy?

    The wall is roughly 8ft long and 18 inches tall

    Oh if it's collapsing , it probably means the foundation is not suitable so you will need to check and sort that out too or it will just collapse again

    Great, looks like it's 1 cement and 3 sand from the calculator.

    Thinking of digging down a bit deeper for the base blocks that the walls sits on to stop it falling over again. It has survived 20+ years before falling down though so another 20 years will do me.
