Those are 1/4" steel and just rest on small corner blocks under the gravel.

Who would have thought that green and red bocce balls could add such a spark of color to a garden? Amidst the rusted metal raised beds and brown gravel path, they're a real standout.
J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 8 Materials for Raised Garden Beds
SteelIndustrial elements like steel add a touch of rustic sophistication to any landscape. Steel, or more precisely Cor-Ten, is commonly used in landscape and construction projects, and comes in sheets that are 3/16 or ¼ inch thick. When it's installed, it starts out a natural steel color and then beautifully weathers to a stunning rusty patina. There are chemical processes that can create the rusty patina immediately, but care must be used in its application to avoid a rusty runoff into nearby plantings or patios.Pros: Steel is a newer material in today's gardens, so it creates it an up-to-date aesthetic. It also provides a slim profile where you want the beds to be defined but with a less bulky perimeter. It's naturally weather resistant, making it a long-term addition.Cons: This type of raised bed is best left to the pros, as installation can be difficult and the material is heavy. It's much more costly and may not be available in all areas. It's also not recommended for areas that receive salt spray from the ocean, as that can rapidly deteriorate the material. Steel can add to the heat of your soil, so it may not be the best choice for heat-sensitive plants. The material itself can heat up more quickly than other raised bed materials, so I've found it helpful to place it in a partly shaded area or use plants that don't cascade over the hot edges.Cost: A simple Cor-Ten rectangular planter box (2 by 6 feet) could run $1,200 or more, depending on where you live.

If you have a modern landscape, consider ditching the lumber and use metal instead. The rusted patina adds a nice contrast to this gray cement stone path. they are just welded squares, open on top and bottom 3'x3' x 16" or 18" . These Cor-Ten steel planters add to the design's play on squares as well as provide a good spot for growing veggies 3/8" crushed rock I've used this Cor-ten and other metals for herb and veggie gardens. We paint the interior with Rubberizit non toxic rubber compound. This keeps any metal from leaching into the soil.
