An experiment in homescale permaculture. Species include fig, comfrey, peach, golden margeruite, strawberries, bee balm, yarrow and jchokes. Planted 2010 onto regular lawn, pictures are from summer 2012.
Its caused too much trouble with my neighbors. It just hasn't really blended in with the neighborhood. It looks pretty great in the summer but it looks bad in the winter. This spring we're willingly taking out most of the front yard, but we're keeping the whole load of stuff I got in my backyard.

That is awful. It must be heartbreaking for you. I am so sorry.
You could try some edible groundcover esp evergreen ones like fava bean. thyme, ferns, 1ft bamboo, wintergreen, rosemary.
Maybe a few fruiting shurbs, cranbrerry/blueberry/strawberry, a little fountain for insects and bird with two fish, otherwise everything in the front just look like overgrown "weeds"
I would at least plant two 15ft trees in the front and leave the grass underneath.
