In most cases the boulders are free. Usually native to the site. Hauling not free (usually).
We built a 10' high boulder wall (using extremely large boulders) using boulders that were piled on site. Smaller boulders will go faster as they're lighter. But it's still good old fashioned manual labor working with a product of nature. One boulder at a time. The cost came from the labor. Very little material expense. A block wall with grid and engineering would have cost less than the boulder wall.
I'm a firm believe in charging strictly time and material for boulders (small or huge). Extremely time consuming. (in comparison to block)
