Gravel boards query

Hi there. Our neighbour is currently having her fence replaced. Her ground level is slightly higher and her contractors have fitted new concrete gravel boards, but set them so high, they are above ground level on our side, exposing the fact that they have sat them on the broken brick foundations of the old wall. The fence panels have now been put on top of them. Am I supposed to just accept this, or are there rules on how the contractor is supposed to leave our side of the fence looking? We will have to raise the level of our garden by several inches to conceal this mess. Many thanks, John.
If they won't put it right, then it doesn't look unfixable. I've got a bit of this in my garden from very old gravel boards and if you pack the soil into the gap and gradually level it out then it shouldn't be noticeable and you won't need to raise the level of the whole bed. But definitely try talking to them first if you haven't already.
If it's their fence, I'd doubt the contractor has to consider your side.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
IMHO , filling in a big of soil is small price to pay.
