As I’ve said before (ad nauseum) our neighborhood is very social.  We are often in our front yards talking and letting our kids play – it was a main reason we chose where we live.  In that same vain, it was important for me that we buy a house with a front porch, I just love the idea of sipping wine/lemonade/insert drink here on the front porch, enjoying the day and being social with my neighbors. 

While most people entertain in their backyards, we have recently undergone a major re-landscaping of our front yard with entertaining in mind. 

We decided to create a low-water maintenance yard, but also something kinda Tuscan yet that lends itself nicely to our craftsman home.  My husband, who sadly has been ‘put on the injured list’ for soccer has filled his time with massive amounts of research to grow wine vines.  Our new and improved front yard now boasts a mini ‘urban vineyard’ (that MAY produce wine in about 5 years), a little stone patio where as soon as we put a table and chairs will provide a lovely seating area for us and our friends and neighbors, a mini meandering pathway (aka, the mini bike track for the kids), and low fence – again a seating area for us and our neighbors (aka, a barrier from doggies pooping).  Here are some pictures of our new Front Yard Entertainment area – I can’t wait to host a mini get together and celebrate summer.
