>> - perched against a private facade
>> - replaces existing pavement, usually a hole in the sidewalk
>> - very small, usually just a meter or so along the facade, and about 30

>> - not operated by the government, but rather a private initiative (this
>> is usually recognizable by the very "personal style" of the little garden)
