Abstract

AA. assess if Puerto Ricans in Lorain, Ohio, express their ethnicity with residential landscaping. Using a city directory, they identified 300 homes in the city that has a head-of-household that had a Hispanic surname, and they compared their houses and yards with those of non-Hispanics. The Puerto-Rican yard-complex included a high incidence of religious shrines, front yard flower gardens, potted plants, well maintained yards, and homes painted in pastels. - (SLD)
