Funny, I previously used bricks as my walls. It was a breeding ground for black and brown widow spiders. It was awful!! I tried to mortar the brick to make a planter wall but that was a disaster. Brick work is called an "art" for a reason! LOL
This was fairly cheap and I love it. Superior to the brick in many ways. It didn't cost much. $70 bought all the wood for 2 pens (I built a russian pen, too) and some still left over. I bought a gallon of outdoor paint and we used a hammer, nails, drill and some screws.
