My inlaws get really cross when people park in front of their house so they often park their own car on the street, particularly when they know their neighbours (who have 5 kids, plus bf/gf's etc) have something on.
I've never had a nature strip that people park on (rather they park on the street out the front of the house which doesn't bother me in the slightest), so I'm not sure how I would feel about it, but suspect I would get peeved if my nature strip was getting wrecked. If I were you, I'd plant something in the middle of the nature strip and hope to god people stop parking there. You might have to wait until sleep deprivation wears off and warmer weather arrives though.

Thanks VicPark, I am aware of that and mentioned it in my post I think.

Why does it actually bother you? She's not on your land or doing anything to disturb your peace. I don't get it. If you plant anything the council will probably make you remove it. It's not your land, you don't get a say who uses it.

I just think it is really selfish - park in the street like everyone else or if you are desperate park in the driveway of the person you are visiting, just don't park on someone elses nature strip.

I get irrationally angry at ANYONE parking outside my house. Not even on my nature strip, just on the road directly outside of my home. It wouldn't bother me if there was a big gathering and there weren't many options, but I do get annoyed when people just randomly park outside our house, yet go visit someone else (when there was plenty of space to park outside of their house).
Perhaps it's because our visitors park on our front lawn... and they can't when some random parks in the way.
So I'll join with with being irrational.
