Since more than 65 percent of snow and ice management contractors provide landscape and lawncare services in the warm-weather months, we crunched the numbers from Lawn & Landscape 2015 State of the Industry report.
We wanted to know what this unique snapshot could reveal about the mind-set of a good portion of snow and ice management contractors heading into Winter 2015-16. In a nutshell, snow and ice contractors remain confident, regardless of initial winter weather predictions. Likewise, labor and attracting and retaining quality labor remains a significant stumbling block for many contractors. Also, more than half of contractors indicate difficulty in managing a work-life balance.
