    Hi. Hopefully the link to my picture works!! Although I think it may be upside down. This is a retaining wall next to my garden. I know it looks like it is about to fall down but it has been there for over 50 years so I'm not worried about that.

    My question is... I want to point it and roughly render it. I'm not bothered about it being plum or even flat but I would just like to hide or the bad stone work. Any suggestions on how to do this or advice on alternatives would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Two things,

    1. why even bother? It's rubble, but it's still stone and apparently doing the job. People pay to have that rough stone look.

    2. You would have to pull out the render thickness too much, hence, it would begin to swiftly crumble and look terrible in no time at all.

    FWIW: If it works leave well alone.
