Many of Santa Fe’s neighborhoods boast an admirable variety of front-yard treatments, speaking to the individuality of the owners, and, it would seem, to the idea that these were not the results of production homebuilding. But in fact, residents of the communities developed by Allen Stamm between 1939 and 1980 have been as creative with their street faces as anyone living in more impromptu neighborhoods.

One recent example is at 1004 Osage Avenue in the Stamm-developed Casa Alegre subdivision. The street wall, created by Tobi Wilde and Adam Steinberg of Glorious Earth Landscapes, is a festive conglomeration of materials, including railroad ties, recycled concrete, broken sections of the previous front walk, chimney tile, and boulders: dark gray rock from the Caja Del Rio landfill, blue granite quarried in the Cerrillos Hills, and red scoria from La Bajada.
