You might also consider boards or timbers made from recycled materials. They are more expensive, but do last a really long time. Lekoma

Subject: [cg] Raise beds
My untreated, wood frame raised bed has lasted me over 10 years now in NYC.
If you used brick or stone to frame your bed, it should last longer. Some
folks do equally as well with unframed beds. Don't know why you're doing
only 3-4 years. I mean, if you're composting and building up your soil, 3-4
years is when you're starting to cook.
