In order to understand how the growing non-farm rural landowner population will influence the rural landscape, this research explored the motivations of non-farm rural landowners for living in rural areas, and their perceptions of their property. People choose to live in rural areas because they are quiet, natural, open, private, and clean. Non-farm rural landowners prefer landscapes with trees and water, and aesthetic quality are crucial.
