The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) has partnered with ITR Economics to provide NALP members with free quarterly economic forecast reports tailored for landscape and lawn care businesses. The partnership also allows members to upload their sales data into ITR’s proprietary software, Alliance, and run their own data against many industry-specific indicators.
NALP members have access to economic forecast reports that provide analysis of business cycles (Accelerating Growth, Recovery, Slow Growth or Recessions) and specific market indicators:
U.S. Landscaping Services Employment,
U.S. Private Nonresidential Construction,
U.S. Private Residential Construction (including home improvement),
U.S. Lawn and Garden Equipment Production Index, and
U.S. Architectural and Related Services Revenue (excluding engineering).
NALP Economic Forecasts are released in December, March, June and September. NALP members can use their member login to access the Economic Portal that houses the Quarterly Economic Forecast Reports and other resources.
