    What are peoples views on pebble dash render over a block wall compared to the smother type render? I was thinking the pebble dash would give a tougher finish compared to say the smooth or am I wrong in this?

    no difference. flat is harder to finish nicely.

    Is pebble dash not a little stronger as such? I guess you can get away with a rougher texture base coat ready for the rough mixture to be thrown on compared to troweling it flat and scraping etc. Would you know if Weber OCR (one Coat Render) can be used as the carrier for this? It is a sand,cement,lime render mix so to what I can tell it should but not a hundred percent.
