Hardscape plan

This is where I am going to need some help. With so much depth and height, I have some big plans. But they are not common, so my sources of information are limited.

I have had more or less the same layout in my first two tanks. It has grown and adapted overtime, but it is mostly similar. My plan for the new tank is again a similar layout with a few new twists. My overall consent is to make this look like a slice out of a riverbank.

- The left back corner is going to be a large hill. I have the room to do it pretty big, I just don't have a clear idea on how to do it.
- The second big twist builds on the big hill. I hope to do a planted back wall on cork similar to Tom Barr's method. I hope this will give the impression of a continuation of the big hill to make it look like a river bank.
- The back right corner will have the manzanita stump that is already in the 90.
