The Gardening Services industry has continued to flourish over the five years through 2012-13. The industry's strong demand fundamentals have underlined steady growth despite an uncertain economic climate. The industry's main customer base is households, headed by high income earners that lack time or energy to care for their own garden, as well as groups physically unable to garden, such as the elderly. Demographic shifts have worked in the industry's favour as higher income levels across the board and a steadily ageing population have boosted demand for this discretionary service. Annualised growth for the five years through 2012-13 is expected to be 1.9%.
Gardening services include lawn mowing; plant pruning; tree lopping; fertilising and watering of plants and lawns; garden refuse removal; and some basic landscaping services.
