    Hi,

    I need to render an outdoor retaining wall. However the bricks are very smooth (I think they might be engineering bricks) and I'm not sure how well the render would adhere to it. I was thinking of screwing some galv expanding mesh onto the wall before rendering. Or could I score some lines with a diamond disc in an angle grinder? Any other ideas would be welcome. On a tight budget so I'm thinking of the cheapest but workable answer. Thank you in advance!!
