    What a fabulous place! Depends on what you want to spend. Whatever you do, make sure that it still have a "breeze-way". At the high end, boulders can be brought in and placed; low end lattice.

    I personally would add brick this will add charm and keep the eyes flowing if viewing your estate and lots of curb appeal and this way if you plan to add landscaping that will also add another layer of curb appeal 🍁🍂

    Might be able to use mobile home skirting depending on the height.

    I would use fake rock panels to give it the appearance of river rocks or natural stone. I think they make mobile home underpinning in this sort of pattern which might be cheaper. If not, check your local home center to see what options are available. Be sure to leave an area that is easy to remove in case you need access under the house.

    I've seen log homes that used stacked rocks, actual large rocks not boulders.
    I think landscaping would be a way to fill in space and add color. I would think mixing it up as to what you use would look nice. ( example: Large shrub with flowering or colored greenery.) You would want to separate any tree/shrub grouping you use, or at least I would. Unless you want a continuing line up. If you did that then there would be no need to stack up rock other than the areas in between that can be seen (if you wanted). You have a great set up and should look into installing a rain gathering system, or you can learn how to DIY.

    First of all, I must say, you have a beautiful home.
    Personally, I think landscaping would be lovely to fill in the space. I would suggest hiring a landscape architect for a design. You may be inclined to landscape in stages, a little at a time. But if I had to choose something, it would, likely, be corrugated metal. The cost is reasonable and it could be weathered for a rustic look, which would complement the wood details, or painted to match the roof. Either way, I'd still use plantings all around. Good luck with your lovely home.
