Landscape Industry Demographic Workforce Study

In 2021, the National Association of Landscape Professionals Foundation conducted research into the demographic make-up of the workforce at landscape and lawn care companies in the United States, comparing it to the demographics of the U.S. workforce at large.

The study included data from over 40,000 employees from 272 companies in 47 states (including Washington D.C.). 

Among other things, the data showed that more than half of the landscape industry is comprised of Hispanic workers, a much larger percentage than in the workforce at large and that women fill a fraction of the landscape and lawn care roles compared to the jobs filled by women in the workforce at large.

Future phases of the project include work to attract under-represented groups into the industry.
