    I posted on here a few days back asking for advice about uneven blocks.
    I would like to say thanks again for the input. Here are some pics of my
    first wall and steps in progress.

    did you look at materials in something more of an earth tone, maybe brown or sand color so as to not contrast with the house and deck?

    Backfill and tamp as you lay chief!!! Also is there a reason your wall courses do not line up with your steps?

    I dropped the step block to 3'' to account for the cap.That way the cap
    went under the wall course instead of trying to cut the wall radius on the
    cap.Also just thought it looked better.

    The pattern on the wall block isn't sitting well with me. It doesn't look random enough for me. I too would have chosen a different color to better blend with the house. Other wise it looks very nice.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but are you mixing two completely different wall stones? It looks like your base course is "square" and then you mixed them in with some "chiseled" looking block?

    Looks like dark gray and tan mixed...kinda stands out a little much to me.

    Hope to see some finished pics though when your done.
