Annie Thornton added this to How to Farm Your Parking Strip
Garden FeaturesJuniper raised beds. The Richardsons live across the street from a popular park and wanted to embrace the heavy foot traffic in the design of their garden, starting with the juniper raised beds. Lau built the beds at sitting height and made the tops extra wide so they can be used as seats. Four of the beds are 4 feet by 8 feet, and two of them are 4 feet by 6 feet. The 4-by-4 timbers they used here are live edge and have a rustic feel.Cedar is a popular material for raised beds in the Seattle area, says Lau, but it’s expensive. “We happened to use juniper timbers for the wood of the beds because it is rot resistant, bug resistant and affordable,” she says, adding that it’s about half the cost of cedar. Unfortunately juniper is not always as readily available as cedar, so it’s good to check your local lumber supply beforehand.Lau suggests building your beds as tall as possible, both to prevent trampling and to avoid neighborhood dogs’ marking their territory on your crops.

Think of something like this for an urban or sub-urban sidewalk strip, It presents a friendly, trusting feeling. To add some security use hoops and floating row cover for overnight insects and preventing cigarette dispensary.
