Solid ground: The construction market will recover, renewing demand for landscape servicesAbstractLandscape Design in the US
After experiencing significant losses during the recession, the Landscape Design industry is finally growing again. As the economy has improved and construction activity has rebounded, demand for industry services has increased, fueling revenue growth since 2012. Since landscape services are discretionary, industry revenue will continue to grow over the next five years alongside improvements in consumer disposable income. Additionally, the industry will benefit from renewed private investment, as infrastructure projects often involve landscape development.
Operators in this industry plan and design the development of land areas for projects by applying their knowledge of land characteristics, locations of buildings and structures and use of terrain. Operators work on recreational areas, airports, highways, schools and land subdivisions in commercial, industrial and residential areas. This industry does not include landscape care and maintenance services, such as installing and caring for trees, lawns or gardens.
