image 1A garden wall encloses your land, creating a boundary around your home. Older garden walls that surrounded period properties would have been made from local materials. A mix of brick, flint, slate or stone could have been used.

Once railways were used to distribute bricks all over the country, walls became mass produced and more uniformed in colour and style.
