You have many options on design of the beds. https://extension.umn.edu/planting-and-growing-guides/raised-bed-gardens#containerized-raised-beds-881262 http://www.arboretum.umn.edu/raisedbeds.aspx http://www.anokamastergardeners.org/blog/2016/4/17/raised-garden-beds These pieces discuss some of the concerns with treated wood and concrete blocks. https://extension2.missouri.edu/G6985 https://extension.umd.edu/hgic/topics/materials-building-raised-beds I know someone who had bad experience with particle board for raised beds.
