I have used landscape timbers (basically 4x4s), drilled through with a 1/2" paddle bit where the holes line up when one is placed on top of another. Depending on how high I stack the timbers, I'll select pieces of 1/2" rebar at least 2' longer than the bed height. I drive the rebar through the predrilled holes and into the ground. Rocks, unless they are boulders, generally don't impede the progress of a piece of rebar driven in with a sledge hammer.

I started researching this last night after I read your post. I'm really interested in trying this!

Remember I'm in Canada

I like the idea of brackets.

And, it's the front yard, very tiny, hay bales out of the question. and it needs to be at least 2 stacks high.
