I was very impressed by raised beds I saw in several South African  
botanic gardens.  I took  photos so I can make some for myself.

Ones at the Karoo Desert Botanic Garden in Worcester were waist-high,  
and built of concrete blocks.  The beds were divided into grids by  
bricks on their sides making  individual square planting spaces with  
one type of bulb per hole.  There were four planting spaces across the  
width, and the beds were very long.  I don't know what the soil was  
like, but the surface was broken rock.
