The higher ground level is 0.80m to 0.85m above the lower ground level.

We would like to replace a retaining wall that is already there.

We would then like to put a 1.8m fence on top of this wall.

We would like to drill fence post holders into the top of the wall if possible, but want to check that is ok.

How deep must the foundations be?

How wide must the wall be? The present wall looks too thin to us.

Do we need anything like ties?

There are no drains etc in the area.

If you use a Powapost like the one in the photograph the centres of the holes are 120mm apart and that foot is for a 75x75 post. As you can see the length of the brick is marginal for sufficient width. If you are putting up fencing panels they will catch the wind more than if you are making a fence with strips/planks to allow for the wind to get through.

I am sorry I cannot answer your more detailed questions.

PS. I should have said the wall supports about the same as you intend to support but it never had a fence on it (it had a railing on it). 3 metre span two supports on the wall (one against the house and one after the wall), the fence will be 1.2m tall and made with staggered slats on both sides.
