Rocks is one example of uneven surface.

To a large extent, this depends on your camera (and lens), how uneven the surface is and what you mean by "too much money", but the obvious answer here is a Gorillapod or equivalent (other brands are available).
I often got away with using the camera bag and/or the lens cap. And small objects (rocks) around can be moved as well. For shutter speeds up to a second, I also lean my camera against poles or walls, locking the hand grip against it. For time lapse you probably don't care so much for long exposures, you just want no motion in between successive exposures. Then you probably get away with the cheapest tripods around.
