LM 2019 Industry Pulse: Labor Report

Posted By MNLA eNews, Friday, December 27, 2019

The good news in 2019 is the economy is strong and demand for landscape services is high. But, when the going is good with the economy and the unemployment rate is low, that usually means one thing: Labor is scarce. Such was the case in 2019, say many respondents to LM’s 2019 Industry Pulse. “You ask any landscape guy out there what his biggest problem is, and he’s going to say people,” says Don Zerby, president of Ecolawn, a lawn care, tree care and pest control business in Eastlake, Ohio. To sum up the viewpoints of many survey takers, one respondent said simply: “Plenty of work, but no workforce.”
