I was determined to get this stupid wall done this weekend. I am sick of it.
I went to the gravel pit Friday to pick up half a ton of sand so that I would be ready on Saturday. I also picked up some 3/4 inch pvc to use to screed the sand. Previously I had used some copper pipe I had laying around but that crap is expensive and I don’t have anymore laying around. The pvc didn’t work, it was too flexible, so I went back and got some conduit.
The conduit worked great, I recommend using that. Also if you happen to be considering doing this, and some moron tells you that you don’t need sand. He’s a moron, sand is the only way to go.
Row 2 (I can’t wait to fix those crappy doors)
So this was pretty it except for bricks that I need to cut.
The old bricks and new bricks didn’t line up perfectly. Honestly the new bricks were the right height the old bricks were a bit high. Plus, the row close to the wall had sunken in, due to all the rain, so that had to be fixed too.
I I just pulled up some of the new and some of the old around the transition and fixed it.
