I'm sorry, imho that looks pretty awful. It's very artificial fake looking with the multi-colored pattern you might find at a Day's Inn or Ramada. Maybe some stone veneer can fix it lol

I like the wall, but it will be very difficult to overcome it with plantings. Anything other than solid green shrubbery will make it look way too busy.

I would personally stick with a solid neutral color. Either beige or gray retaining blocks. Much easier on the eyes and will blend in with the landscaping. Walls are nice and neat but should not be the focal point of your front yard. Ornament plants or trees should be the focal point and be accented with flowers/shrubs. Now if this was the rear of the house and it had a waterfall, that's a different story but again, I would keep it neutral/natural in color.

The construction is really good-but all those colors-no way!

i like it, but would prefer either a single color or two colors, rather than 3. makes it look busy.
