UD-CEAE researchers (Left to right; Chriss Davis (UD undergrad), Dr. Olesya Savchenko (postdoctoral researcher), and Nora Messer) are administering the 2018 HomeVISE (Homeowners Values, Innovations, and Stewardship Enhancement) study, which examines consumer willingness to pay for various lawn care best management practices. In this study, we were examining preferences towards a native plant, and studying the persistence of how long these plants survived once planted at homes.
