Fix bricks with Stucco.
Are your bricks separating? We’re using a stucco that has lime in it so that when this brick wall moves or expands once more due to moister or roots, it will flex with it.

Since many have asked what is this stucco and where to buy it?
You would have to google “Plastering yards near me” to buy this stucco.
It’s called BMI 690 with fibers; Sika now owns BMI 690iwhich is a premium pre-blended cement-lime-sand mixture that has been specially formulated for the scratch and brown coat.
You just mix with water and apply while being careful not to overmix or overwork.
As a rule, mix 3 to 5 minutes. Then, apply with as few strokes as possible.
What happens if it’s over-mixed or over-troweled? It won’t achieve its potential strength.
We have tried to remove this cement plaster before. It’s as strong as a concrete driveway.
Even our electric Roto-Hammer tools can barely scratch it.
Type, “BMI 690 fibered cement stucco” into Google to understand how amazingly strong it is.
