I have the same question, plus will that work in a really cold climate or will they shift with freeze and thaw cycles?

Gabion walls. Pebbles and cobbles are often used as an infill for gabions (wire cages that are filled with stone to create a solid block), where their ease of handling and attractive appearance make them an obvious choice. The gabions here have been used to create a simple yet attractive retaining wall.
