Chinook Industry Spotlight: Landscaping Services Q3 2022

  • The U.S. landscaping services market was valued at $130 billion in 2021, with most of the revenues coming from commercial landscaping, representing over 52% of industry revenues.
  • The market is projected to grow at 2.5% annually through 2027, supported by rising home improvement spending.
  • The U.S. landscaping services industry is highly fragmented with an estimated 100,000 business establishments, due to the low barriers to entry allowing new entrants to quickly develop a presence in local geographic regions.
  • Since 2013, the industry has experienced stable growth in M&A transactions reaching a peak of 45 relevant transactions in 2021. The fragmented nature of the industry has created a competitive environment for landscaping acquisition targets and led many of the larger firms to deploy a growth-through-acquisition strategy as their primary method to scale their business.
