Landscaping Industry
Insights from D&B Hoovers

Industry Overview

Description

Companies in this industry provide landscape care and maintenance services for both commercial and residential customers. Major US companies include Asplundh Tree Expert, BrightView Landscapes, The Davey Tree Expert Company, and TruGreen. Outside the US, major companies include Active Tree Services (Australia) and Idverde (France).

Competitive Landscape

Demand is driven partly by construction spending and partly by the economy's overall health. Because management and equipment costs are mainly fixed, the profitability of individual companies depends on demand volume and operations' efficiency. Small companies can easily compete with big ones, except in providing services to large customers. Big companies operate mainly through local branches or offices that have operations almost identical to those of local companies. The US industry is highly fragmented: the top 50 companies generate about 15% of revenue.

Products, Operations & Technology

Landscaping services include commercial and residential landscape maintenance, landscape construction, irrigation systems, tree services, chemical lawn care and pest control, and "line-clearing," or branch removal around utility lines. Larger companies may offer several of these services, but most provide just one. Commercial landscaping services account for about 50% of US industry revenue; residential, for 30%. In winter, some companies provide snow removal or ice melt services.
