Small 6x6 Raised bed...is a gravel footing overkill?

I need to price out installing a 6x6 raised bed which will primarily be one course, about 25% will have a second course. Might be a stupid question, but is it overkill to set this on a gravel footing?

No, do it the right way with your base materials. You'll have piece of mind knowing you did it right

Always build it the right way. All it takes is for this one little planter to fail and you may have people questioning if you build bigger projects the right way.
