Fence problem

Following the high winds we had earlier this year, our fence blew over, then lock down kicked in as were about to replace it.

We managed to find someone to replace the panels and post, however we are left with a tiny problem. Unknown to us, the old fence had been curving into our neighbour due to the weight of the soil.

We need to do something to protect the fence panels from getting damaged by the stony soil.

What wood can we use to do this? We have not dug put the soil back yet.

    You need something more substantial, such as scaffolding planks with 2x2" stakes driven in behind.  You will need to line it otherwise it will rot through in a few years.  Alternatively, you may be able to use concrete gravel boards supported in a similar way.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
