I used cedar 1x6 fence boards, rough & untreated in any way. I am just starting season 5 and I don't expect to be replacing them anytime soon. I will easily get 2 more seasons out of them, possibly more, but that completely depends on how well I treat them (read: not smack them with the lawn mower too many times or accidentally lift the corners up with the shovel when adding compost, etc.)

Good for you!
I am not sure as this constant freezing than thawing takes a toll on my boxes. I am pushing 5 years now and they will not last more than 2 more seasons.
