You can use your least favorite stone as a base to get more height out of the other stones. If you do a hill side coming down from either corner or cliffs you will need to buy a good amount of substrate. Aquasoil or eco complete or something similar. There are a lot of brands that are similar to Aquasoil and cost a lot less. A rocky hill side would be nice. The big dome piece I gave you with the really neat nooks and crannies at the bottom edge would look cool as the top of the hill or cliff face as to leave all that character on the bottom half of the rock exposed and create depth and shadow. I know some people mix rocks with sticks, I usually do one or the other, unless you are going for the island convex root look surrounded by sand like some pros do in IAPLC.
