There seems to be a trend with home builders these days. They are moving the garage around back, accessible by an alley, they are adding front porches with neighborhood socializing in mind and they are reducing the size of those expansive front lawns we have become accustomed to seeing. With smaller front yard areas to work with there is great opportunity to use alternatives to grass.
