7 Ways to Create a Neighborly Front Yard https://www.houzz.com/magazine/7-ways-to-create-a-neighborly-front-yard-stsetivw-vs~20273340 Foster community spirit by setting up your front porch, paths and yard for social interaction Many of us find ourselves living in communities defined not by common acquaintances, knowledge and culture, but by geography or economics. Rather than knowing our neighbors from childhood, we may not know our neighbors at all. To create a sense of community, it’s often necessary to bring people together so they can get to know one another. By creating spaces where members of a neighborhood can mix naturally (at a safe distance), communities can become communities in the true meaning of the word — places where people not only live together, but care about and watch out for one another. Here are some ideas to help foster interaction with your neighbors on your sidewalk, in your front yard, on your walkway and on your front porch. 4. Light the Way This one is a no-brainer.

When lighting the front walk, take care to eliminate pools of light and darkness, which can be a hazard, particularly for older visitors. The goal is to have the walk evenly illuminated.
