Try looking in a book called The Enabling Garden, by Gene Rothert, HTR.
He's a Horticulture Therapist working out of the Chicago Botanical Garden.
This book gives practical dimensions for several alternative bed types, plus
planting tables, walkway widths, and methods for adapting tools for users
with limited strength and/or mobility.
