Since we already have a small play space dedicated to lawn in the back yard for my son, and being that we live on a slightly busier street in town, we're not likely to use the front space - ever. Who really uses their front yard these days anyway?
My main concern with committing our front yard space to growing food is design. Nice green lawns are esthetically pleasing and it is what we've grown accustomed to looking at. Gardens can be messy places, so finding a design that is pleasing to the eye and will be an inspiration to others is important. I found an interesting design at The Casual Gardener, and I think it looks pretty cool. I'll have to play around with it to see if it is something that will work.
What do you think? Would you consider replacing your front lawn with a vegetable garden?
