Perhaps he meant that it needs a railing along the top to to protect trespassers from falling over the top. Must be aware of ,Elf & Safety issues.  :D

I had to look this up and I now find myself looking at brick walls with interest.  ::)

Saw a nice Flemish Bond brick wall outside of Taunton today.  :)

Yes mark...But on the other side of the wall is the (public) pavement,and that is why i think he is saying these 10mm rods.

That's why they are using the rods, if its a retaining wall in any way (pavement, patio etc) then a free standing brick structure needs tying together vertically in order to stop it moving. It should also extend below the lowest ground level to (but that rarely happens)
