Recently I had an enlightening conversation with a PR agent and the head of a major landscape company about the future of the landscaping industry. Over the last 5 years, we have seen a major increase in project size and cost when it comes to outdoor renovations and the landscape trade had boomed because of it. Unfortunately it looks like rougher waters ahead however.
Now my editor cringes every time I talk about the generational gap between Millennials, Generation X, and the Baby Boomers. Unfortunately for her, these three demographics are changing the face of landscaping as we move into a new period for our backyards.
