You should never limit yourself to the creativity of building a wall. I have seen many people build walls just from the materials from their local area. I built a wall in front of my own property over 160 ft. long and nearly 3 feet high with rocks I collected over a period of a few years.
Rocks can come from the local area for free, or even a farmers field. You can purchase them from your local stone yard, or collect them from leftover projects. This wall below has a mixture of fieldstone, landscaping blocks, and even some flagstone.
A mixed wall using a variety of stones is a little more challenging to assemble. This is where your puzzle building skills come in handy.
