raised-bed best substance to surround the raised bed

I'm mostly complete with two hoop houses and raised beds and I'm curious as to what a good media is for the perimeter of the cedar raised beds.
 
Any pros or cons to:
 
mulch
landscape stone
composite mulch

I'm not, my little guys are a little too young to face the elements at this time, 2 - 3 more weeks and they'll be ready.
 
Thanks for your input!

You could use a 1 1/2 in flagstone tightly placed and try growing moss in-between the pieces. 
 
Something like this...

Very nice, I like the looks of that, I may lean toward a brown or earthy stone...nevertheless - wonderful idea!
