I've been collecting photos of decent hellstrips - the area between sidewalk and street. It's another of those challengers unique to city dwellers. It's also something I have to start thinking about.

have the added issues of a tree AND a light pole.
I know that the property belongs, officially, to the city and I can't do anything permanent, or that I would cry over, in the event utilities need to be dug up.
I do know I want a hardscape area for people that park and need room to get out of their cars. That's easier than kvetching about people stepping into the garden all the time.
