Default Lattice fence above brick wall

I want to install a wooden lattice fence
on top of a brick wall.
The wall is about 75cm high and 3.5m long.
What is the best way to do this without damaging the brick wall?

What do you mean by "damage"? If you are excluding using wall plugs to fix
uprights on one side, I suppose you could fabricate a structure that
supports a vertical batten on each side that then holds the fence upright

Resin fixing will avoid expansion force

I meant something like drilling vertically through the wall
to install an upright in the middle of the wall -
I'd be worried that that might pull the wall down in a gale.

My thought had been to do exactly what you suggest,
attach wooden uprights to my side of the wall.

I'm afraid I didn't follow this.
What exactly is "resin fixing",
and what would I be fixing?

Bizzo fixings. Drill through timber into brick, no plug, no expansion,
drive straight in with drill driver. Easier to pull a sailor off your
sister than pull one out.

I think we are assuming you will be fixing timber uprights to your side of
the wall?

Read the reviews here for info

Bit OTT for your job IMO. Steve was saying though, that normal plugs, which
expand, can cause bricks to crack, especially near edges.

Thanks for both your explanations.
These look useful; I'd never heard of them.
