any ideas how to fix this??

Anyone got any ideas how to hide this screw up without completely tearing out and redoing? The left side is 2 inches to high. I thought about replacing the block that touches the step with a light of some kind maybe.

Take apart a small section of the wall, either 1. Cut the buttoms (so you can hide the cut) of the second to the last row to make it even or 2. Redo that small section of the wall from the base up. JMO.

Plant a shrub dead in the corners that is tall enough to cover it all up.

Ya I thought about the shrub idea. May try that. I could cut the row under the caps down a little but would be cutting around 25 blocks to run the whole wall. And the concrete is un level. Walls just slightly unlevel

Maybe put a slight incline on it with a angle grinder or cut off saw.

Thanks for the input guys, I know I'll never make that mistake again, thankfully this one was in my own backyard and not a customers. I'll probably just hide it the best I can with bushes and look at the other way. I don't think the average person will notice it or care. Only people who do this for a living.
