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.

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!
