Going uphill can be a challenge and this wall was built using reclaimed stone that gathered from the garden rather than buying in new walling stone. We think at some point the wall had been dismantled to raise the ground level because of the poor drainage.
We fixed the drainage problem by locating and tapping a natural spring in the garden. It was a real DIY fix but it works and does the job. It saved thousands in groundwork costs and is still going strong
