We inherited this broken brick fence with our 40's brick home and we would like to remove it completely. There is a lot of soil that need to be retained. Our options are pine sleepers or a low barrier wall of some sort.
We have 4k to spend on the front garden and are trying to work out whether to put a low barrier merbu screen wall or a picket fence.
If we go a low budget way we will have money to pay a local gardener to help us design the garden and to buy plants.
What do you think will look nice as a barrier wall - low barrier fence (which looks nice), no fence but beautiful garden, or a contemporary picket fence?
Please give me a few ideas.

First time I have seen a retaining wall anchored into the bank instead of using concreted in posts.

I'd be checking with Council as some require plans
BTW retaining walls and ground soil anchors need to be checked for durability and robustness..... no-one wishes to maintain retaining walls
