Totally agree .
Standing in front of these blocks it is very very obvious that the pre existing limestone wall has been cut back to match the adjacent granite repair blocks which are of considerably varying depth, necessitating varying degrees of cut back .
The limestone has been tailored to fit the non uniform granite.
