Incorporating a water blade into a block planter

I hope someone can help because this is beyond me! I have almost finished building a large planter from concrete blocks and have one course still to add (4 in total). The planter is right angled with two large 'squares' at either end. Having looked at water features for the garden the popular choice...

Re: Waterproofing a rendered block planter

Can you fix fence panels to the face of the post?

I would like to erect a double slatted fence but would prefer the look of the panels butting against each other without being 'interrupted' with fence posts. Is there any issues with this?
