There are many reasons why a boundary wall starts to lean. It could be tree roots that grow and cause heave, thus putting pressure on the wall footings or foundations.
All retaining walls should incorporate weep holes to allow water pressure to be relieved and allows any water to seep through.
It is important to have regular checks on all your boundary and retaining walls to make sure that there is no damage or leaning occurring. A garden wall that collapses can cause serious injury or even death to an unsuspecting person or animal.
Should you find any damage it is very important to have it rectified immediately.
Make sure that the wall is thick enough for its height. The ratio of height and width various around the country and weather conditions and ground conditions.
Different materials will vary and you may have to introduce forms of reinforcements to improve the stability of your walls.
All walls should have adequate footings, not just shallow trenches with some concrete slopped in it.
Avoid any shortcuts in the erection of your wall or fence, as it can cause serious injury to people or animals should the walls or fences fall.
As your walling or fencing is your first line of defence, you need to ensure that you get the best possible security for your family, property or business.
