Afterwards, you should dig a hole (foundation) which needs to have the width of the wall and be deep twice as much as wide. That was quite easy, don’t you think so?
Step 2 involves the usage of concrete. After all, it is going to be a concrete wall, isn’t it?! All you need to do is fill the foundation with concrete and let it cure for at least 5-7 days. In fact, the period depends on the weather also but if you want to be sure that the concrete has cured, leave it for a week.
When the week is gone, you can take step 3. It is the process of building the block wall. Also, step 3 is considered to be the most complicated one as there is a serious chance of making a mistake. However, if you are careful, that will probably not happen! Just take the concrete blocks and start laying them on the foundation. Start with the first row, then build up the second one and keep on laying them until you do not reach the height of the concrete block wall needed.
Well, that was everything which you need to know about how to build a concrete block wall. Hopefully, you have realized that it is extremely easy and everybody can do it, even if they are not a professional.
