IMO part of the "back" is the core which supports the body in general. I believe a variety of exercises keep things "fresh" and the muscles improving.

Everything is connected to everything else! -- In many settings, compound exercises are probably the preferred exercise-type for overall benefit (often more "functional"!).

pull ups. you can also use the pull up bar as an anchor for a resistance band so that you can perform a far greater variety of rows.

Right now I'm doing one-arm rows and dead lifts. Are there any exercises I'm missing in my routine that will help build up my back? I workout at home and have adjustable dumbbells and a workout bench but that's about the extent of my home gym.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.
