Landscape Design in the US
The Landscape Design industry in the United States, which includes designers and architects that specialize in planning land, water and other outdoor areas, has been growing since 2013. Demand for landscape design services is directly tied to demand for construction and renovation of both residential and commercial buildings. Additionally, over the past five years, industry operators have invested in more advanced equipment resulting in higher purchase costs, but lower wage costs. As the economy continues to grow over the next few years, industry revenue is forecast to do the same. Demand for construction and renovation is expected to continue to increase as businesses and individuals find additional disposable income to spend on building projects. As landscape projects are typically not thought of as a necessity, demand for landscape design services increases with disposable income, which is forecast to rise over the five years to 2023.
Operators in this industry plan and design the development of land areas for projects by applying their knowledge of land characteristics, locations of buildings and structures and use of terrain. Operators work on recreational areas, airports, highways, schools and land subdivisions in commercial, industrial and residential areas. This industry does not include landscape care and maintenance services, such as installing and caring for trees, lawns or gardens.
