Outdoor Inspiration: Front Yard Farms & Grass-Free Gardens

It's been a year since my husband and I moved into our house and in that year we've made improvements and mistakes, including killing our front lawn. It was scorched in the 104-degree July temperatures last year. I've been dreaming of a front yard farm or a wild garden to replace it, but I'm not sure we'd actually do it: the houses on our street are evenly spaced with similarly sized yards, so it would be a matter of disrupting the symmetry. What do you guys think? Front farm, grass free garden or not?
