Aging block retaining wall


I find The pattern on my new wall is too strong and vivid. The swirling and the silvery/white are too much.Is there a way to make it more blended/subdued?

I heard suggestion of putting dirt, growing moss, stain with coffee,tea,etc...

I'm guessing you could use a concrete stain on it. By any chance do you have a spare piece or 2 of the material to test with? I would think 1 of the acid stains designed for concrete would work quite well.

I second the suggestion to fog it with a concrete stain.
