The whole neighborhood watched eagerly as the front yard of this home was transformed into a tidy garden with a mixture of edibles and ornamentals. The owners were originally told not to grow vegetables in their front yard, at least until they met Andrea Nilsen of Nilsen Landscape Design. Nilsen noticed that the site had the perfect southern exposure for growing edibles and suggested this to the couple. They loved the idea and ended up with two raised beds and a pair of espaliered apple trees that welcome visitors to their home. As it turns out, they aren’t the only ones who love their new front yard—neighbors, friends, family and even their mailman have expressed how much better it looks.
