Fill this street-side garden bed with low-maintenance ornamental grasses or native grasses that will add texture and color without the need for excessive watering and care.
Dew or water vapor can freeze on cold surfaces, forming an extra-thin, nearly invisible layer of ice that can look like a wet spot on the pavement. This is the first area visitors see when arriving at your home or driving by, which makes this small patch of land essential to the overall visual appeal of your property and makes a statement about you to your neighbors and guests.

You can just use the rocks, or you can add a few strategically placed plants or ornamental grasses to bring color to the space. So if you have the opportunity to trail run regularly, do so. Extend your arms out to your sides to maintain balance. It simply should make sense that the more you do something, the more your muscles and tendons will strengthen to make that thing happen more easily.

Rubberway Sidewalks were designed with these issues in mind and not only reduce root heave and cracking, but also provide filtration and stormwater management.
