It would be a good idea for you to email nextdoor and point out the defective workmanship, and the risk of their land spilling over the boundary. Request that they remedy it before it falls over of its own accord, and that you accept no responsibility for keeping their garden from spilling over. Then simply leave it at that and wait until either their patio starts to sag due to earth washing away underneath it, or the fence starts to list. At that stage make clear that you will cooperate with them replacing the fence provided it is properly built.

It's common enough when you're using quantity to make up for quality!!!
