New garden on top of bermuda

I am adding like 60sq ft of new raised garden beds to my garden. Bermuda grass is currently in the location although dormant. My raised beds will be 18”-24” high. I plan to not disturb the existing soil. Lay cardboard. Then fill with garden soil / compost. Is that a good strategy to combat bermuda or at least hold it off some? Dont want to use lanscape fabric as I want worms to be able to enter garden. Plus I eventually want roots of veggies to go deeper once cardboard decomposes.

Feel like cutting the bermuda out like sod alone wont help. Roots are deep. Plus thats a lot of work and wasted soil.
