Homeowners’ Top Three Ideal Outdoor Spaces
According to the survey, homeowners’ top ideal outdoor space is “functional” (40 percent) or focused on the overall utility of the lawn. Characteristics of this popular response include using the yard for children to play, sport activities, backdrop for entertaining, and growing flowers, fruits or vegetables.

Coming in second is the “formal” (24 percent) outdoor space characterized by a perfectly cut, healthy lawn; clutter-free area; manicured landscaping; and little or no yard accessories.
