Flower bed - design advice

Hello,

I wanted some advice on a small flower bed at the front of my house (picture attached). As I park my car very close to it and people normally step on it, I want to put stones on it or close it down. Can I have some ideas / suggestions please?

Thanks.

    You could put down gravel and plant creeping thyme amongst the stones. The plants look good, have fabulous flowers that are loved by bees, and they don't mind a bit of foot traffic.

    Hmmm it is a rather tight space and I can understand why people may accidently walk on it. What is on the right of the hedge as we look at your picture?

    there is a public pathway to the right of the hedge.

    I see. Well I think that what Ceres suggested is the best solution. I had been thinking about moving the hedge but with the pathway that would not be a useful suggestion.
