Fern Garden Under Oaks

I am starting on plans for a fern garden under several mature oaks. Most of the ferns will be evergreen varieties; I will also include some hostas as accents. This area must be attractive year-round it is adjacent to our winter entertaining area. I am on the border of zones 8 and 9. The area is somewhat low-lying. We have brick steps down to the area from the house.

My question involves preparation of the beds. Should I build up the beds a couple of inches or should I simply leave at the current level?
