Reader's Choice Awards Top-10 Viewed (Clicked On) Landscape Architectural Articles on in 2012 (Jan. 2012 to Oct. 31)

Last year LASN wanted to know which articles on our readers most clicked on to view. We learned that people on the web were most frequently clicking on features presented in the magazine, and less so on the monthly columns and news.

New markets on the October list include Santa Cruz, Calif.; Pocatello, Idaho; Abilene, Texas (pictured); and Savannah, Ga.

October Housing Short on Good News
New home builds reached a four-year high in October, but building permits fell and the new home sales rate has not increased since May. Market growth is predicted in the new year, unless the dire predictions on the "fiscal cliff" reach into the housing niche with the larger economy.
