Repair outside block crack


Dig away the soil and expose the joints. Wash the soil out of the bad areas. Probe the joints around the open area to make sure you get all the bad joints exposed. Use a mortar mix to fill the open areas.

do you fill in the hole in stages or do you some sort of metal mesh wire to hold the concrete patch?
