desire to hide their private plots from the public eye comes from their owners do notso rare.Moreover, given that many plots of land can not boast of large size, then the issue of creating around them "borders" for the possibility of privacy is becoming quite urgent.But what is best to choose a fence?
The most common material today for these purposes (provided that you have decided to build the fence, as they say, for centuries) was the brick - it is durable, beautiful and of course durable.But before you begin, you should definitely learn how to build a brick fence yourself to the result is not just a massive, but nice.
marking the foundation of the fence
begin construction of the brick fence with their hands should be to establish the exact boundaries of the site.Do it yourself you can not, so you have to turn to the surveyors.If you've already done surveying the land, then they quickly
dealt with the exact boundary of the site, you can proceed to the next stage - the definition of the location of the fence.You should not assume that the middle of your brick fence should always be held strictly on the line representing the boundary of the site.This rule is true only if you erect a brick fence between their land and the street.
But the brick fence between the neighboring sites will require you to greater attention:
- Firstly, we must be sure to agree on a fence with a neighbor (if it is against the need to limit ourselves to the usual grid-netting);
- secondly, when the thickness of the brick wall is more than 100 mm, it is better to move the axis on its side (otherwise, your neighbor may resent that you took part of his land for a fence) - according to the norms of the neighboring plot should have no more5 centimeters thickness total intake;
- thirdly, to pay the total construction of the fence your neighbor is absolutely not obliged, as decided to build a brick fence you, not him.
foundation brick fence
next step - the construction of the foundation under the brick fence with their hands.It will be simultaneously and its cap, i.e. will protrude above the ground level is not less than 10 cm, so the foundation must be made of durable material (e.g., reinforced concrete).The thickness of the foundation should be equal to (or slightly above) the thickness of the brick pillars that will serve as support for the brick piers.
Foundations under the fence
Depth of this foundation, provided that all the piers will be performed as of brick, should not be less than 50 centimeters.
How to lay a brick fence piers
pillars of brick must be placed approximately every three-meter fence.More exact distance between them depends on the length of your border, as to build a beautiful brick fence can only keeping the same distance between the sections.
principle clean bricklaying
space between the frame and the inner walls of brick should be filled with cement-sand mortar.

To strengthen the whole construction of the fence every 3-4 rows of masonry, you must insert the small metal rods (length 40-50 cm), that would later be incorporated into the masonry piers - soyou get a more robust fence than in a separate masonry piers, in no way associated with the posts.
brick fence with concrete sections
wall between two brick pillars can be made of:
- bricks with jointing at both its sides;
- ordinary brick, provided that you later it either plastered or oblitsuete other materials (for example, natural or artificial stone).
In this ordinary clay bricks can be placed on the edge (in this case the thickness of the partition will be only 65 mm) and an ordinary face (thickness of the partition is 120 mm).
