Regulations (Besides 3′-3’6″ Fencing) for DC Front Yards?

“My partner and I are considering buying a home and one of the items on a must-have list is semi-peaceful outdoor space. We’re currently looking at a row house in Columbia Heights with a very small backyard area (mostly consumed by a massive AC unit), but a sizable front lawn space.

Does anyone know what kinds of zoning rules or neighborhood regulations we might come up against if we decided to put in a few paving stones for a patio? What about arbors and tallish shrubs/hedges? I’ve seen several attractive front yard spaces in Columbia Heights, but we’d like to comply to code and add at least an illusion of privacy to an outdoor space we’d be using often.”
