Staining Treated Fence, change this design?


I started with timber retaining wall and decided to start building a fence above it, so I could you that area for storage. I used 4x4 treated timbers for wall, and 1x6 cedar for fencing. Obviously, I am planning to build the fence higher, like up to 5 feet.

I'm not thrilled with the way it looks, and I'm wondering if I replace the cedar for 1x6 treated, then after stain the whole thing for a nice, uniform look. Also, remove the gaps between each fence board.

Other option, is I scrap the fence idea and just keep the retaining wall. See pic, thanks.

Ru the fence vertical, it won't look so much like a corral, or a pig sty.

No insults intended.
