Guys, I have a lawn customer that has an impossible hell strip I need to help him decide what to do with. It is about 80 ft long and a boulevard area between the sidewalk and street. Most of it is about 3-4 feet wide. I currently just spray the weeds in there, and since that is all that will grow, it has been a dead space for the last couple seasons. I would like to help him transform this area into something functional and decent looking. Removing/replacing soil and re-seeding is not an option as grass would not survive long term in there. Also, I must mention that this is also a high foot traffic area with frequent street-side parking there. Do we have any ideas other than simply doing a complete paver or stone job on it? Could I work in some drought tolerant ornamental grasses or other tough-as-nails perennials into the plan? Or is adding any plants at all trouble due to the foot traffic? Thanks.
