Or if you keep them, figure out a way to put other smaller stones around them to make them look like they're not just sitting there on their own sticking out like soar thumbs. And mortar hidden under then and around the sides (with other smaller rocks hiding the mortar on the sides) would be in order.
thanks for the help....i didn't realize it at first, but those rocks do look like they just stick up on the right side. they are actually the same height as the steps and have the expandable foam under and behind them as well. hope everyone is safe and getting ready for another fun filled year!
