    The least expensive is to dig a small trench between the yard and garden and use it as the border. I think I would look at using a pressure treated wood and sink it in the small trench then sturdy it with stakes. You need to decide what you want the look to me - a rustic wood or a finished block - that will guide you.

    I think it depends on how high you want the border to be. If you're wanting to keep out the local "veggie-eaters" (rabbits) I would use stakes and chicken wire. Not very attractive but it works!

    Treated 4x4's work well and last for years, just use rebar in predrilled holes, going into the ground a bit. How deep also can depend on how high you put the 4x4's stacked. For two high, we sunk them about a foot and a half. Make sure the predrilled holes match to avoid gaps when you stack them.
