How do I know if a garden wall needs repointing?

The pointing of our brick front garden wall (about 4.5m long, 5 bricks high) is looking worse for wear, but still seem fairly solid. How do I know if it needs repointing? Is it just is the bricks start to get loose? Thanks :-)

Repointing isn't so much for structure purposes, rather to please the eye. The mortar you can't see is the important part. When the mortar starts to crumble and reseed is when potential weakness occurs

If its cosmetic and still solid you probably could get away with it, if your startimg to see mortar chipping away from the joints its advisable to get it repointed
