I have used dry stack cement, boulders, untreated woods, fir mostly (2 " thick and so far no rotting in the 8th year), and just dirt piled up and leveled off 4' wide and 12' long. works for me, and if you do not walk on it, the bed will hold its shape with just a little shape up at the beginning of the next garden year.

I use a home made broad fork to loosen the soil each year but do not turn the beds over to avoid messing with the worms and other activities going on in good organic soil. Each fall i add about 2 inches of compost and a could dozen worms to each bed,
