Can a wall be replaced with a fence?

We have moved into a property that has brick wall sections. 2 sections are 3.9m long, 2-2.2m high with end and central pillar. One of these is wobbly and the other has cracked and is falling. At the end of these is a 1m curved wall that is also broken. Funds are not available to rebuild 9m of tall brick wall, is it possible to fence if the wall is removed or to fence on the first few courses of bricks? What kind of costs would be involved? The cause of the walls demise is ivy we estimate to be 20yrs plus left to grow on a bit of land that no one seems to own. It is 12ft high and 8ft thick behind the wall so this would need removing too.

Ideally would have to replace the existing retaining wall. Removing wall and fencing would leav the ground prone to land slipping.

Yes that is possible,simply a case of digging post holes concreteing them in and either using gravel base bords and slotting pre made fence pannels into the bays, alternatively for more privacy take the brick walls down and replace with blocks

Safest thing to do is remove wall if brick pillars are cracked and loose than strength is gone in wall and unsafe ,not usually good idea to erect fence on first few courses unless bricks are secure ,price reflects on what preference of fence needed as there are various types of fencing available

The best thing to do is to remove the wall and put up a new fence but for any quote I would have to have a look
