Installing the stone. Achieving a sound structure means adhering to specific guidelines. When choosing a contractor, make sure he or she is experienced in the craft and check out previous work. Each stone is hand chiseled to fit within the wall, and there are no wobbly stones. Stone wedges are used to stabilize rocks within the wall. Rubble rock, or backfill, is placed behind the cut stones to help with the integrity of the wall.
