While things have started to reopen, the extra time we spent at home last year made us more aware of improvements needed both inside and outside our homes. Extending our living space outdoors has become popular, especially with more entertaining and family gatherings now taking place outside. Urban rewilding is also a growing trend, as people move away from high-maintenance lawns to more pollinator-friendly options. And armyworms – what are they and why are they so invasive this year? Our annual Fall Home & Garden special issue also has suggestions for how to make weeknight meals work for families pulled in different directions and how to start planning for a less-wasteful Halloween.
