Outside Paint Peeling off in Sheets?

Postby windskipper » Sat Feb 09, 2019 11:19 am

So we moved in a year ago and the back garden has a border wall with raised bed/soil on the other side. Guessing they slapped some paint on to sell as it's now peeling off in sheets. Did they use the wrong paint?
I obviously have to strip it back but because there's soil on the other side I don't think the wall will ever fully dry out. So I need a solution/product to paint on either as the paint, or before whatever paint goes on.
Could anyone suggest something? Ideally a suitable paint that doesn't need a base layer beforehand but the main thing is to achieve a long lasting paint finish.Also, when is the best time to complete this.... guessing dry as pos?
Hopefully this pic works.....

Also, there are patches of rust showing through some parts of the render/paint, could i just prime these small areas with something before painting or would I need to treat and add render?
