Default Rebuild garden wall

Anyone any idea how much it would cost to rebuild a garden wall? It's currently brick for the first couple of layers, then horrible breezeblock for the remaining 3foot.
I want it rebuilding in brick so that its 6foot tall, about 10m long.
Is this going to cost a few hundred or more like £1000???

:rolleyes: Any brickie (half decent) is going to knock the current wall down, lay new foundations and then build wall.

Day 1 - Knock wall down and dig foundations
Day 2 - Lay new foundations
Day 3+ - Build new wall

You want at least a 18 sq m wall and you think a few hundred will cover it

Do you know the cost of bricks? I think at least £1,000 labour plus materials, and your biggest problem will be getting someone to actually do it!

Cool

I just had a quote for a new front wall. Labour for two brickies 3 days £1400 and material £800. This was a London job though.
