    I would mitre the corner and carry on with that distance from the wall all around. You could either put small pieces in then, or fill with nice stones for edging.Place a slab over the top corner before the bend measure your distance from the wall outwards so it's the same distance as your straight pieces and then scribe your angle and then cut with your angle grinder. Nice job by the way.

    The second picture is the way to do it, the problem lies in the wall around the corner not being at 90 degrees to the wall you are parallel to and so will look wrong. You could cut one course on a taper if the above is correct which may not be noticeable depending how far it is out! for me mitering it would be loads of cuts and wouldn't look any better.
