TYPICAL BRICK FENCE DESIGN
A fence built with bricks like this brick fence in Burleigh Waters is a common sight on the Gold Coast. different from block fences that are core filled with concrete. a brick fence needs piers every 2.5m or less for support, these piers have vertical steel and are core filled.
in-between the piers are brick panels with aluminium infill panels above.
you can exclude the aluminium and have full height brick panels or another option is to have the panels flush with the front of the piers.

Many of brick fences I have repaired or replaced is due to roots as small as 10mm getting between the footing and first course of bricks. if plant life is kept away there shouldn't be a problem. Piers and panels look good and many people prefer that look. 90% of the time a brick fence cost is cheaper than a block fence cost.
Face brick fences are regular choice if you need to match your house and don't intend to render at any stage.
Construction wise alone a fence that has every core filled with concrete (not isolated core filled) has a bond to the footing that is concrete to concrete not just mortar. In 25 years I have never seen roots get between footing and blocks when done this way, big trees may cause damage if they get under the footing but generally with the steel and concrete properties they are the superior fence.
