Looking to take down the hammer in edging, and want to install a stone "wall". The area is 18.5 feet long on one side. Im using the house foundation as the other side. The lowest point will be about 3 inches high, and the highest and the end point will be 8 inches. How do I figure how much stone I will need? I think the stacking retaining wall blocks will work best.

Personally I wouldn't so through the effort of building a wall for such small height changes. Simply slope the ground if possible so all you need is 3 inches along the whole length and put something like Permacon Celtic Mega curb.

This will be way more cost effective and much easier to install.
