ABOUT THIS REPORT

Scope & Method
This report forecasts US demand for contract landscape services in US dollars to 2017.
Forecasts are also provided for the number of landscaping service establishments and
employees to 2017. Forecast totals are segmented in terms of type by:

lawn and garden
tree and shrub.

Contract services are those hired out to third parties. Services provided by the members
of a household or staff of an organization or company are excluded from the scope of
this report. In addition, this report does not include restoration or remediation services,
as they are not part of regular maintenance activities.
Total demand is also segmented by market as follows:





residential
institutional
commercial
office
industrial
other markets such as public venues, private utility plants, libraries,
museums, and nonprofit agencies.

To illustrate historical trends, total demand is provided in an annual series from 2002 to
2012; the various segments are reported at five-year intervals for 2007 and 2012. The
number of landscaping service establishments and employees are also provided for
2007 and 2012. Forecasts emanate from the identification and analysis of pertinent
statistical relationships and other historical trends/events as well as their expected
progression/impact over the forecast period. Changes in quantities between reported
years of a given total or segment are typically provided in terms of five-year compound
annual growth rates (CAGRs). For the sake of brevity, forecasts are generally stated in
smoothed CAGR-based descriptions to the forecast year, such as “demand is projected
to rise 3.2% annually through 2017.” The result of any particular year over that period,
however, may exhibit volatility and depart from a smoothed, long-term trend, as
historical data typically illustrate.
Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided at five-year intervals with CAGRs for
the years corresponding to other reported figures. Other various topics, including
profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report
items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
