Grounds Managers


Employment for most workers in this field is expected to grow by up to10 percent, much faster than the average for all occupations, through 2029, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Job growth will be tempered into 2021, however, due to the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Business closures and ongoing lockdowns have triggered an economic slowdown, with many companies cutting their budgets and furloughing workers. Employment growth for grounds managers and related professionals will pick up as the pandemic ends and the economy strengthens. In the years to come, planning, design, and maintenance of grounds will require the expertise of grounds managers. Areas such as California, Arizona, and Florida, where mild climates warrant grounds management year-round, will offer the most employment opportunities for grounds management professionals.
