Landscaping services in the U.S. - statistics & facts

In the United States, landscaping companies offer a wide range of services that could comprise landscape maintenance, lawn care (including chemical application), landscape design and construction, installing and caring for trees, and irrigation services to both residential and commercial properties. This industry is projected to generate a total of a href="/statistics/294212/revenue-of-landscaping-services-in-the-us/" target="_blank">115 billion U.S. dollars in 2021, aided by the fact that the average spending on lawn care and gardening activities of U.S. American households has steadily increased in the last years reaching approximately 500 U.S. dollars in 2017.

Basic landscaping services are not expected to provide fast revenue growth

Almost 90 percentof landscaping and lawn care contractors in North America offer lawn care and chemical application services as of 2020. This signifies that this service constitutes the bulk of the services offered in this industry. Nevertheless, in 2019 over 30 percent of surveyed landscaping contractors in North America expected a substantial increase in their revenues due to a higher demand for landscape maintenance services. In the meantime, less than 15 percent of contractors expected lawn care and chemical application services to lead to fast-growing revenues. Additionally, this could imply a saturated market for basic landscaping services, implying that leading landscaping companies in North America should diversify their range of services in order to further increase their 12 billion U.S. dollars combined revenue.

A small and diverse industry in the United States

In the United States, this industry is composed by many smaller firms scattered across the country. For instance, the Western state of California concentrates 12 leading landscaping companies , followed by Texas with 11 of those companies. As of 2020, 34 different U.S. American states were home to at least one leading landscaping company. While being numerous and virtually present in the whole country, landscaping firms are quite heterogenous in terms of revenue: According to 2020 figures, only three landscaping companies had revenues that exceeded the one billion U.S. dollars mark. The first being BrightView with over a href="/statistics/900214/annual-revenue-of-brightview/" target="_blank">2.3 billion U.S. dollars in revenue, followed by TruGreen (1.4 billion U.S. dollars), and the Ohio-based Davey Tree Expert Company with approximately href="/statistics/900902/revenue-of-davey-tree/" target="_blank">1.3 billion U.S. dollars generated in 2020.
