Wall Bricklaying Costs

How much to build a garden wall in brick or block?

These are example prices you could expect to pay a bricklayer to build a wall for you, not usually as part of a larger project. For example it could be a garden wall (or any other wall for that matter) in brick or blockwork.

Bricklaying is a sought after skilled trade and in high demand, which pushes prices up. For larger projects such as an extension or house build a fast an efficient brickie will probably charge per 1000 bricks or metre squared, a day rate can be quoted as well but ensure you’re getting value for money, you should expect to get an estimate of how long it will take.

For a typical garden wall a good tradesmen will usually quote a fixed price, it’s only once you’re looking at larger house extensions and builds that a piecework price would be more likely. It’s always best to obtain a fixed price for the total job if possible, you can check our garden wall calculator to give you ball park figures for a typical external wall.
