Patio gardens…

Quick question for you guys since you are so knowledgeable about everything else... I'd like to start a patio garden at my apartment and I'd like to know the cheapest/easiest way to do it. I have nothing on my patio yet and the weather is beautiful right now so I'd like to go sit out there with something other than concrete. I live in Arizona so I'd need something that's able to survive the heat since it gets 110+ degrees during the summer months. Any advice for me?
