* Editor’s note: This survey is a more in-depth analysis of an earlier Houzz survey (http://landscape-business.com/houzz-2018-landscaping-survey-results/). When Offers.com partnered with Houzz the survey was extended to include approximately 300 additional people (bringing the new total to more than 1,000 respondents). This gave Offers.com the ability to look into regional trends with the newly surveyed results.
