While almost everyone has a front yard, we have almost no lawns in my neighborhood in central Tucson. It's almost all desert landscaping or flowerbeds or (unfortunately) just plain dirt. It's interesting to see all the non-lawn ways that people utilize their front yards around here. While I don't necessarily frolic through my desert landscaped front yard, I really enjoy sitting on the front porch swing while I have my coffee and watch the birds and the steady stream of walkers and joggers who go by every morning.
