    I started off with semi raised beds. In other words, soil from the paths and some manure piled on top of the beds, but no edging to the beds.
    Gradually, as I have been able to source cheap/free edging materials, I have edged/terraced some of them on the most sloping part of the plot.

    Looking around our site, all kinds of materials can be used. Timber, aluminium roof sheeting, plastic sheet (outdated price list from Chinese takeaway), paving slabs (half buried so they stand up).

    Its amazing what you can pick up for free. Gumtree, Facebook pages etc. Never pass a skip without looking in. Ask workmen on building sites, I always find them friendly.
