Default decorative concrete block walls

is it just me or does anyone else wonder what can they be thinking using those huge
interlocking blocks to form terraces? I see them on a lot of the DIY or house shows.

they are incredibly ugly and monotonous. sorta the shag carpet of the 21st century
(well I think pergo qualifies better). Ingrid

I guess it is a matter of taste. I have a concrete paver walkway and I
think it is rather attractive especially compared poured concrete.

"Rusticate" the blocks with a sledge. They'd HAVE to look better with
random corners and edges knocked off. Stain with 2 or 3 hues of earth tone
concrete paint. Look at any piece of older brickwork. Several colors of
brick are typical, else the walls look cold and oppressive.
