With only 9inches of space I think you’re a bit optimistic. won’t a long panel from door to gate, just free standing there look a bit odd. It will be touching your door frame.
If you plant anything there and don’t move the path, you will be brushing against it, getting clothes hooked up on it, no chance of putting anything prickly there.
Is it really worth it, the neighbours will still be there, and how often do you come in front door.
Could you use a side door, or go through the garage so as to avoid the area altogether.
Another one to put on the ‘requirements’ list when you buy your next house, doors way apart.
