Garden barrier wall ideas

Hi Everyone,

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.IMG_7966.jpeg

Re: Garden barrier wall ideas

another option would be concrete sleepers which you can get in many different styles and colours
