It is not public property but depending on certain factors, it is considered a public place. If it is not fenced, it is considered a public place in that the pubic has access to it ie: walking up to your front door to knock. Anyone can do that unless it is fenced or no trespassing signs are displayed. Each state has different statutes regarding this. But as a matter of law, the front yard is considered a public place.

Actually, in most cities the government does own the first 15 ft of your front yard. The good part is that they have to maintain it if there is a sewer break, etc. But technically it is theirs, not yours.
