    As the title I'm hoping to render and then tile the side wall of my patio steps, It's about 1-2 mm wide but goes all the way from top to bottom ( about 50cm), first time trying out rendering so I'm all new to this.

    Wall is made out of concrete bricks.

    Do I need to apply a wire mesh before the scratch coat? or anyhting else or nothing at all?

    If applying wire mesh is the answer then do I apply it before the scratch coat or after?

    Just worried the crack will widen and will transfer to the tile over time.
