Crack in a concrete garden wall


Postby highlander1862 » Thu Oct 16, 2008 10:16 am

I have a sinle block garden wall which has a crack running vertically through the mortar and concrete blocks. Should i simply fill this with mortar to fix or should i replace the concrete blocks altogether. If i fill it with mortar will this just fall out after a while.
Any DIY tips would be a big help.
