Turning Front Yards Into Backyards…?

I just realized not everyone is on Twitter or Facebook, where this question was originally posed while I was eating lunch on the Front Porch:


How would your city be different if people used their

front yards like they do their backyards?

(Or, how would your street change?)


I wonder…

    We’re trying it out this summer… our backyard is a “secret garden type,” so we are redoing the side of our corner house to be the new front. That side looks on the TART trail where all the action is! We will be waving and smiling while eating our dinner in the front yard and hope you will all wave and say hello. TART users are a sociable bunch. The culture of front porches in an Urban area where kids can pickup and play together will hopefully be embraced by this style. Daily life is too scheduled overall and adding the randomness factor of “who just came by” should multiply our joy.
