Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The Landscaping Services industry has an extremely low concentration level due to the large number of small firms operating in the industry. The four largest enterprises are estimated to account for only 4.6% of industry revenue in 2016-17.

There are several large facilities management and asset services companies that provide grounds maintenance and landscaping services that fall under the industry. However, the divisions of these companies that provide landscaping services are relatively small and often only account for a minor proportion of total company revenue. The vast majority of enterprises are very small and localised, with just a few employees.
