Fencing Question

I want to erect a fence along the garden wall but there are brick supports that petrude from the wall making it impossible to run the fence flush along the wall. how do i get round this problem?

The wall is approx 4 ft high and the fence we were wanting to put up will be approx 6 ft high with arching trellis top part so can't just cut fence panels down to fit between the piers that pretrude about 8 inches.

I assume when you say brick supports, you mean piers, you cant remove these.
Options are you could loose a bit of room and set the fence flush with piers or panel inbetween piers.
You havent said how high the wall is, or how high the fence will be.
Edit to your extra information, if your using 6ft wide panels cant you set your post out, so as they miss the piers, if so then fit some 8ft post in tight to wall, as you already have a 4ft wall then you only need 2ft panel with the bottom edge sitting level with the top of the wall, this will give you the 6ft and be cheaper.

If your wall is straight and sound you could run a lower fence line along the top of your wall. Use 3 x 3 inch bolt down met posts to house your posts along the top of the wall. Then run your fence panels between the posts.
