In the midst of a “Stay At Home” order, local residents have made an unexpected discovery: their front yards.
During a stretch of beautiful days, neighbors could see out in front of their homes, shoveling, landscaping, and reading on their front porches.
“Normally, I go straight from my car into the house,” Adam said, wiping sweat from his brow with his gardening glove. “I didn’t even know this yard was here! It’s great; I can spend time outside, and I found out I have neighbors!”
Jane, who became a self-proclaimed professional florist when her company asked her to work from home, showed off her new flower bed. “I dropped $400 at Lowe’s this week, but just look! I didn’t even know what a trowel was, but now I keep one holstered!”
Experts anticipate the increase in beautifully landscaped yards will increase housing prices by 60%.
