Child proofing garden

    Is there a barrier between the extension and the raised area? The harling looks damp and could be a problem with damp. Just something to think about. back garden looks fine for kids to me.

    are you referring to the little wall?  If so I pressure washed the wall to the left last summer.  The right wall hasn't been pressure washed for a number of years I believe.

     I highlighted it in the attached. You can get water ingress when the soil level is high and next to the wall like that. It may be nothing but just something I that caught my eye.

    I'm not sure if there's a barrier between the wall and soil. I am however getting a new felt rooft to the semi detached garage along with the neighbour. The neighbour has asked the builder for a quote to damp proof the back of the garage up near the fence as the bricks look quite fairly moist half way up from inside the garage.
