One of the lessons the Covid-19 pandemic made clear was the importance of having a home that you love to be in – and ideally one with access to outdoor spaces. While the pandemic changed many things, one of the noteworthy economic impacts was the amount of money people spent improving their homes and properties. Businesses ranging from small greenhouses to national-brand home centers have seen their sales rise and then stay at the elevated levels as do-it-yourselfers converted the time they would have spent socializing into time invested on projects around the home. Another impact we have felt locally is a trend driving people to leave major cities and opt for places where they can enjoy wide open spaces.
