Suburban Life, the most formidable competitor to Country Life, was founded in Boston in 1903 as The Suburban, an insubstantial black and white monthly, and relaunched in 1905 as Suburban Life. Like its slightly more established and slightly more prosperous New York competitor, Suburban Life emphasized beautiful homes, house plans, decorating, landscaping, and gardening. It was absorbed by the Independent in 1917.
