Although a front lawn is not ecologically the best use of urban space, there are strong cultural pressure to conform to that aesthetic ideal. When individuals choose to grow vegetables and fruit, they often face some push-back from the city or homeowners associations with a different vision on the appropriate use of space. Some have estimated though, that if we were to convert 10 percent the country's grass lawns to vegetable gardens that they could supply roughly a third of our fresh vegetables.

I think that having having an urban garden whether it be in the front yard or the backyard should be a must in every state even if it is a little garden, I think it will make great use of the land.
The grass is always greener… when you treat your finicky lawn right. But beware, the right way isn't exactly the intuitive way (just letting it grow probably isn't the smart move).
Thank's for this post, I finally got an idea on how to grow properly the grasses on the lawn.
