The Rice Field Project Part 18 : Not everything goes as planned

As part of Living in Thailand, the Rice Field Project follows our journey of buying land and preparing it for building our house. This is part 18, to read the other parts click Rice Field Project.

So we raised the land a little bit with only 40cm - 60cm of sand. At about 50% of the border of our land this will not give any problem. But that other 50% .... as that is about 100m I did not want to spend a lot of money of building a wall. So our fence are wooden poles with bamboo and some cement poles at all corners. Then we realised that some parts might need some protection and we did make a very small wall of 35cm high and mostly in the ground. And at almost all places this works OK. Although keeping the wall at its place with steel pins of 70cm was not a real good idea so we added some 150cm long wooden poles to fix the cement wall. But at one place the sand is going under the cement wall and created a small hole in the land (80cm by 30cm). Now that is exactly at the place where we had been digging last week. So I assume the sand was not good pressed and then rain made his way into the sand. So we are considering to have made a low wall (just 10cm about the sand) of 20m long. And of course use the cement ceiling parts that we used already as wall.
