CLient has already started to install large reatining wall with concrete blocks ( 2x2x4). Any suggestions on how to dress it up?

Plaster it with a color in it. . Maybe a terra cotta. Plant fast growing plants like creeping fig. That will attach to wall. Just plant one each wall they grow fast. Have mounds of dirt brought in for corner to add palm and plants. A border with wood chips and other color plants like bird of paradise. Are nice, grow fast.
