Put concrete post in ground or flush against 5ft wall?

by Gunner786 » Sun May 17, 2020 9:55 pm

After finally getting the old posts out i move onto the next stage....

1ft gravelboard 5ft panels.
If i flush the concrete post against this wall then it wont go under ground because theres 2 bricks and 1 ft of concrete pointing out at the bottom.

If i put the post into the ground then there will be a 1ft or so gap between the post and the wall. I dont think the wall is that strong as you can see the state of it, its about 65 years old. Will i be able to cover the gap with something that will look nice or will it look nasty?
The priority is the rigidness and strength of the post but i also dont want to be left with a 1 foot gap that sticks out like an eyesore unless theres something to fill it with...
