Having a home that you love to live in has always been an important part of enjoying your life, but 2020 really drove that point home. 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 home centers saw their sales rise as do-it-yourselfers took advantage of the extra time they had to invest in projects around the home. Those investments also found their way to outdoor spaces enhancing properties throughout the area.

Another shift being felt locally is a trend driving people to leave major cities and opt for places where their money goes further. There is evidence to suggest that a new mass migration is underway, prompting a large number of people to leave major metropolitan areas in favor of smaller, more rural communities. Factors driving this shift include higher property costs in metropolitan areas, the accompanying taxes, congestion, and crime – all issues that have been in place for a long time. The arrival of Covid-19 has made many people rethink city/suburban life, with some of them preferring to move away from the city.
