12 Accessories to Create a Social Front Yard

The social front yard has become a popular feature as the world attempts to go back to normal. The idea with a social front yard is that it’s a place that encourages neighbors to stop by, where your community can congregate and catch up, and it’s an extension of the social areas of your home, except outside.

It can be anything from front yard chairs, with or without a table, to an elaborate setup with anything you can imagine. You can add a charming front yard trellis or even build your own deck. Take a look at these top 12 products to help enhance your front yard space.
