Painting an exterior retaining wall

In my garden I have a long exterior retaining wall (holding back earth). It is currently a brownish finish. I’d like to paint it – but not in a block colour. I was thinking a sort of ‘wash’ / ‘chalky’ finish. Would a lime wash paint work for this? Any ideas? Thanks. Jenny

Hi Jenny 

Lime wash or the St. Astier Lime Paint will work providing there are no existing coatings present on the wall and the render has no waterproof agents/additions. 

A lime based paint requires an absorbent background so it can soak into the wall/render and set. 

Either option will work, however the St. Astier Lime Paint should provide a more durable finish and comes in a range of 24 colours – https://cornishlime.co.uk/st-astier-lime-paint-1446

Any questions please give the office a call on 01208 79779.
