A Glimpse at the Industry

It is believed that there is a stereotype where the landscape industry is seen as primarily a labor-intensive, less-educated workforce and not worthy of consideration. This is simply not true! This industry is filled with opportunity and a future of great careers. It is true that anyone can buy a truck, load it with equipment and call themselves a landscape professional, but they are also the ones that are leaving landscapes destroyed in their wake. There is a lot more to this field than people think and truly professional companies are looking for the right people to take their firms to new heights. In 2015, the National Association of Landscape Professionals published an industry report describing the current standing of jobs and salaries within the industry. Take a look at some of their findings above. If you would like to read the entire report, click here.
