The bricks are porous so you'll want to line the back of your bed with a rubber membrane of some sort to keep the moisture from penetrating the bricks. A pond liner will work and you should be able to find the material at your local Home Depot. Be sure to place the liner all along the bricks and past the first 6-8 inches of pavers on both sides. Bring it out at least a foot from the bottom of the bricks and along the soil before adding the topsoil for your planter. This will ensure that very little moisture will be able to seep up into the bricks, which will keep them from weeping or decomposing from excessive moisture. Best wishes with your project.
