Retaining wall railings

last year
last modified: last year

We have a raised patio with high retaining wall. Pavers sit on screening, caps are glued to the retaining wall below. Once it came to railing installation our contractor suggested driving 4x4 posts into the ground outside the wall and build railing onto these posts. I have never seen it done on such a high wall ( some sections are 5 feet tall). And I think it will just look ugly and take away from beautiful stone. Someone else suggested side mounting? Looking for advice on products/ railings we can use at this point.
