Hi, I'm after a bit of advice for replacing a garden fence. I have attached some pictures of fence, was going to replace with feather board my self, but i have a section that has a small retaining wall made of breeze blocks.( only two block high) This section is approx 20 foot long and the posts are in-between and set into the wall foundations. My question is what would be best to get these out and replace? would you take wall out and start again or try to remove section of wall and foundations to get posts out. The whole fence is approx 90 foot long

Thanks

In your second photo it looks like the post is rotten anyway so it will need to come out and be replaced. Do you need to remove the whole thing? Depends upon if the posts are set to a size to take regular panels and if you are happy with the cosmetic appeal of blocks. You could of course simply replace the whole thing with concrete posts and gravel boards simply cutting through the foundations as and where necessary.

I would cut the posts off at the top of the wall and put the new posts in front of the wall, but not at same place, meaning change the spacing of the posts. Tearing up the wall to reset a few posts, to me, is a can of worms to open up. I'm a commercial fence designer.
