I'm a general handyman and have been asked by a customer if I can put a featherboard fence along the top of a 1.4m high single skin brick wall. The fence part only needs to be a height of 500mm. I'm not too keen to do it as obviously cant bolt posts to the top of the wall and am reluctant to bolt posts down the side of wall as I think would cause damage to the wall in the long term. The wall has no piers is about 3m long and adjoins the house at one end. I've suggested trellis but no it has to be solid. Would this be right and does anyone know of any good lightweight screening - not the bamboo type that might be suitable ?
any comments/ experience greatly appreciated

I've been to quote for an identical job today. My advise was either a small fence in front of or behind the wall with concrete posts to secure. For me it wouldn't like right but it's a rental and she said a few prospective renters had said it put them off as kids could fall off.
