    We have some water pooling outside our house, and it's getting worse -we also have a single cracked brick right above this area and further up quote a lot of cracked mortar.

    I am concerned about foundations etc but have no idea if this is valid, and if so who I'd call to get it checked out.

    Any insight would be welcomed!

    They look like recently applied stone slips. No idea what the wall underneath is like. But your damp course might be bridged.
    You are bound to get pooling at the lowest point. (Water runs downhill) Raise that area, or lower the other areas.
    And your wellies are by the wrong door.

    That brick was cracked when it was laid. The joint cracking is common and may be related to the poor bond. The ponding could be just age.

    There is no signs of foundation movement there so no need to call anyone, unless you want the path relaid.
