The suburban front yard, dominated by lawn, has long functioned as a passage from house to street and tidy foreground to the home. This session explores recent trends toward other uses of the front yard: for socializing, recreation, and cultivation, functions historically kept in the backyard.

Please complete a brief evaluation of this Online Learning presentation.

Learning Objectives:
  • Review the history of suburban residential front yard design, explore recent design trends, and learn what is driving those trends.
  • Learn ways that homeowners are using small properties to the maximum potential.
  • Learn how community governing boards (i.e., HOAs and municipal codes) are reacting to homeowners desires to change their front yards.
  • See how these boards are changing their design guidelines to adapt to the homeowners’ requests.
