What to do where cultured stone veneer meets grass

I have a cinder block wall that I am going to cover with cultured stone veneer and I am wondering how to deal with the veneer at the bottom of the wall where the grass butts up against the wall. If I install cultured stone veneer on the wall, I'm concerned about grass growing into the veneer (where it meets the grass) and I'm also concerned about damaging the stone veneer with my mower when I mow the lawn periodically.

How is one supposed to install the veneer and protect it at the same time?

I was thinking that I should have a small mowing strip poored at the base of the retaining wall, and then install the stone veneer down to an inch or two above the mowing strip. The mowing strip would serve 2 purposes:

1 - Provide a "clean" termination of the veneer install
2 - Protect the stone veneer from getting banged into by my mower and or edger.

Is the the right approach or is there a better way to deal with this?
