Americans Love Their Living Landscape

Here is a fascinating infographic based on a survey carried out this winter by the OPEI (Outdoor Power Equipment Institute). Although the survey was done in the US, I can definitely see a very similar—if not identical—pattern here in Canada and I wonder if it doesn’t apply as well in England, Australia and other parts of the world.

I’m personally not so much a lawn guy as a garden guy, but I’m still happy to hear that green largely beats asphalt and cement in our home landscapes. Long may green reign!
