The pristine lawns, vibrant flower beds, cultivated shrubbery, and trees of your community represent more than just aesthetics—they’re created by a rapidly expanding industry.

The landscaping services sector has blossomed into an economic force, projected to swell to $182.76 billion in revenue by 2025. With such fertile ground for growth, over 1.3 million landscapers and groundskeepers make their living maintaining outdoor spaces for residential and commercial clients nationwide.

While sunny locations like California, Florida, and Texas employ the highest number of landscapers, this booming industry has taken root across all 50 states. 

Cultivating a thriving landscaping business 

As the landscaping market grows, so do the challenges facing companies operating in this labor-intensive industry. A recent survey revealed that 72% of businesses cited labor availability and retention as the overwhelming barrier to growth. Economic conditions (43%) represented the next highest concern but trailed far behind workforce issues.

To cultivate success in this competitive, high-growth environment, landscaping companies must strategically manage their operations, crews, assets, and finances. This is where implementing a cloud-based, end-to-end business management solution like Aspire can pay dividends.
