Mostly to deter vandals, thieves and suchlike folk.

Chicago had a really neat design in the '70's, but I think most of 
the rest of us just tried to get in the most plots and walking space 
we could. Some gardens also have communal spaces which sort of grew 
like Topsy.

We've got flower beds at both entries and one along a wall where we'd 
dumped a bunch of rubble early on, as well as an orchard, grape 
arbor, barbecue plaza and the once and future gazebo.The locations 
were determined by space availability, the presence of concrete and 
all sorts of other strange parameters.
