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 Adverse (France).
The worldwide gardening and outdoor living market, which includes landscaping services, is about $220 billion, according to Garden Media. As the world becomes more urban, interest in green spaces -- including trees, lawns, flowers and hedges -- is increasing in cities around the globe, driving demand for landscaping services.
The US landscaping services industry includes about 96,000 establishments (single-location companies and units of multi-location companies) with combined annual revenue of about $66 billion.
Demand is driven partly by construction of new commercial properties and residences 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.
