You can put stucco at the bottom of the house by choosing the right kind. They come in different modified systems including traditional three-coat, proprietary one-coat systems and even EIFS. Mix the appropriate coats, which is essential for application. Find more info from http://legacyhomeinspections.ca/pdf/Stucco.pdf.
But honestly, if you aren't sure what you are doing, you should probably subcontract to someone in your area that has experience doing that type of work. Otherwise you could end up with a very irate customer if it's not done right, or worse having to fix mistakes out of your own budget.
