Employment for most workers in this field is expected to grow by about 10 percent, much faster than the average for all occupations, through 2029, according to the Occupational Outlook Handbook. Job opportunities for pesticide handlers, sprayers, and applicators are also expected to have faster than average employment growth during this same time span. In 2020, the coronavirus pandemic disrupted many industries with lockdowns, business closures, and a resultant economic slowdown. However, many states deemed landscapers to be essential workers, which has enabled many of them to continue working during the pandemic. Employment growth for landscapers is expected to resume growing at a fast pace in the coming years. Going forward, landscapers and their services will be in strong demand due to increased construction of buildings, shopping malls, homes, and other structures. Upkeep and renovation of existing landscapes will create jobs as well. There is also a high degree of turnover in this field as many workers transfer to better-paying occupations, retire, or leave the field for other reasons.
