Front Yard Gardening Without a Front Yard

You know that expansive flower garden we found yesterday, the one that's shared between neighboring front yards? Well, we came across another, quite opposite, form of front yard gardening not far from there. It's a front yard garden without a front yard...

This couldn't be more different from yesterday's overflowing garden, yet it is still beautiful in its own right. This house has no front yard to speak of - the building facade sits right at the sidewalk. Yet its owner still found a way to include plantings in a non-existent front yard: potted plants line the sidewalk at the base of the building.

We know we're guilty of giving up too easily when we feel we don't have enough outdoor space to get our hands in the dirt. This just goes to show that no matter how meager your outdoor space, there is always room to introduce a little green into the picture.
