I am trying to dog-proof and child-proof the garden. In one corner my neighbour has a small breeze block wall, which is only two blocks high. One option would be to make the wall taller; how high can you go with a single row (half brick?) wall of breeze blocks? I assume they are breeze blocks, these concrete blocks all look the same to me!
I don't think the neighbour would be too keen on my building up their wall, so I think I may put a small fence in front of the wall on my side. It's a paved area. Would I be best to dig a hole a couple of feet deep and insert a fence post in the hole, or could I use these brackets that you bolt to the floor?
I don't actually know what is under the paving, so I could just be bolting them to a paving slab. Would that be enough to hold the post in place in a gale? Or are these designed for bolting into a large block of concrete underneath?
