This wall is made of nylon fishnet and cement. Although only about 1/8 inch thick in many places, it has somehow managed to survive hurricanes. You can probably credit that to its irregular shape, which includes a serpentine foundation line. It is the nature of cement to shrink and crack, though. When a banana plant and heavy raceme of bananas fell on it, the wall failed and a big chunk broke out of it.
The patch, made of plastic window screen and grout is probably only about 1/16 inch thick. We shall see how it holds up, but I am confident it will be around doing its job for many years to come.
Step 1: The Hole
I used my trusty pressure sprayer to clean the area so that the grout would stick well. Grout doesn't shrink, like cement does, so the crack problem should be reduced, or eliminated.
I used a pressure sprayer to clean the wall before applying the grout.
Step 2: The Screen
Step 3: Adhering the Screen to the Wall
Step 4: Covering the Screen
Someday, if I want to make the colors match the wall I'll just paint it with colored cement. For now though, I have other things to do. Maybe someday I'll colorize the whole wall. ( see: http://www.instructables.com/id/Painting-with-Colored-Cement )
