A comprehensive GIA study, titled Landscaping Services: A U.S. Market Report, indicates a resurgence in the domestic landscaping services market, expected to reach $80.06 billion by 2015. Long-term growth will be spurred, the study predicts, by economic recovery, greater consumer spending, and growing interest in residential and commercial property beautification.

While the recent economic downturn dealt a blow to the U.S. construction sector, including both private and commercial building and remodelingĂ›significantly dampening recent demand for landscaping services–recovery in government spending aimed at beautifying public areas and nonresidential building construction, plus installation of new golf courses, will give the landscaping services market a boost, according to the GIA report. A comprehensive industry and service overview, key market trends & restraints, profiles of major players, and recent industry activity are presented in the study, which examines market data to provide analysis in terms of value sales by service segments, e.g., Garden/Lawn Landscaping (Commercial and Residential).
