natural vs fake vs brick pricing

I'm trying to figure out the most cost effective method for a long sitting wall. 350sq ft of surface. What would your most cost effective style of hardscaping be? I've only dabbled in the fake stone so im far from an expert but I have plenty of experience with natural.

Build it out of block. Culture stone and brick both need a block backer. Double the work and material

Retaining wall block would be the least expensive for material and labor.

They are fine spending the money and don't want block

So then why is cost effective the main point? Do concrete block and culture stone, stone tread cap
