Tumbled Bluestone retaining wall


I was thinking about making a short retaining wall for a flower bed in front of my house. We like the way Tumbled Bluestone looks and I was looking for any pointers anyone may have with laying such a material. It wouldn't be very high - i'm guessing a foot and half at the highest.

Also, any experience in cutting the stone? I'm assuming at some point I'll have to do some cuts on it to get it all to lay right.

My thoughts are to do three tiers, the bottom one driveway level up a foot and half or so, the next one about a foot and half above that one and then the top one which is the same height of the walkway to the house. Not looking to do a patio with it (yet).

REAL tumbled bluestone or conc facsimile ? 4" diamond blade on a small hand grinder OR demo saw from the rental yard,,, IF you're good w/carbide tracer & stone chisel, use a 2# hammer
