Is the landing four steps up a solid piece? Is the face thermal or rock faced? Thank you

No the landing is not one piece. The stone is thermal bluestone.

How is this wall done? - Is this wall concrete with stone on it, or is it a stone wall?

Clever! Is cement how you got the top of the wall to be flat? I am looking at purchasing a home with a similar wall, but the top edge hasn't been finished as cleanly as this one. I wonder if smoothing cement would be an option, because right now the wall we're looking at looks a little sloppy — and this one looks fabulous!
