Garden Fence Erection! Fixing to a wall?

Hi all, we have a breeze block wall for about half of our garden on the right hand size that is about 4ft high and 25ft long. Now the wall is too low for our liking as we can see in two gardens that back on to the side of our property. Do you think it would be okay to put up a 6ft fence using 6ft x 6ft fence panels and attach them directly to the wall using raw plugs and screws rather than using fence posts?
also they would not be attached on the 2ft overhang at the top? do you think they would carry 2 foot? it is not a particularly windy spot. Thanks in advance.

Notwitstanding the fixing arrangements you need to consider getting planning permission first.

If you are staying within the 2m limit then screwing with brackets should hold.

Thanks but no planning needed as fence is under 6ft 6" tall

you need to set the posts in the ground, or it will fall down, not short cuts

not using posts fixing directly to the wall, as it says at the top ^^^^

thanks hellfire, yeah I'm not using posts but was going to fix each panel in multiple place to wall, surely this would be as strong as if I were using posts. I would put posts in front but due to the foundations of the wall this would be difficult.

yes, thats the problem!

the footings of the wall will be leverage by the extra fencing, and break, and the panels will have little support anyhow, and break

must use posts, set into ground at intervals, and go from there

My neighbour fixed posts to a block wall and attached some fence panels and with the wind the posts eventually came loose from the wall as i would suspect the panels would do also

use frame fixings into the mortar joints of the wall, I personally prefer the screw types without the need for plugs

they look good enough, or you can buy the brick screw type which uses no plug , I used these to screw plywood to a breeze wall prior to plastering , this allowed me to hang my 50 inch plasma safely

sorry to be a pain Goldmax and thanks for your help, but do you know where I can get screws that don't need plugs and what do they look like? I'm lookin on screwfix but not sure what I'm looking for.
