As we wrap up the crazy year of 2020, most of us will be looking ahead and wondering how 2021 will pan out. If you are a builder or landscaper, there is a good chance your business actually had a successful year.

This trend will likely continue through 2021 and even beyond as many businesses are already considering working from home being the new normal.
