Transworld's landscaping business category includes lawn care, tree trimming and many other services dedicated to designing and maintaining attractive outdoor spaces. These spaces are important to residential homeowners, commercial enterprises and governmental organizations. A poll conducted in 2015 shows that a significant majority of American adults highly value their yards and believe professional landscaping services could help to keep them beautiful. In areas that experience strong winters, snow removal can be a large part of a landscaping business as well. It is important to document and show buyers how this cash flow adds to your opportunities as well. For these reasons and more, landscaping businesses are in high demand.
As an industry, landscaping services boast an annual revenue of $78 billion with a 3.9% average annual growth rate from 2011-2016. According to a recent industry report, the median revenue of landscape contractors is $217,000. Additionally, the landscaping services industry stands out for its friendliness to small businesses, with the top 150 landscape companies accounting for less than 20% of the industry's total revenue.
On top of their normal popularity, landscaping services have seen a recent growth in profitability, which increased by 50% in 2013, thanks to low overhead and an economy that allows landscapers to raise prices significantly (in 2015, 63% of landscapers claimed they charged more for services than they did three years ago). Demand and sales will continue to be driven by factors such as growing construction activity, an improved economy and the rebound of the housing market.
