Valued insights from our Bay Area Landscape Pro community

The survey results provided some valuable insights from our diverse Bay Area community and highlighted areas in need of attention. A few of the findings—including from the 2023 Landscape Pro Survey winners revealed:
  • Many Landscape Pros | LP’s are challenged with landscape design
  • LP’s want more than plants from a wholesale nursery including education, tips + resources
  • LP’s want guidance on landscape problem-solving + plant solutions
  • LP’s want to know how their peers are using plants with project examples
  • LP’s want to share their work with others
  • LP’s rely on wholesale nurseries for purchasing plants
  • LP’s want large plant inventory + wide selection from a nursery
  • Promotions + seasonal savings are somewhat valuable
  • And more
The result of the survey findings uncovered many opportunities to fill gaps and enhance our experience.

We will be addressing the input from our community in new services, operational improvements, and new content just for Landscape Pros. We look forward to sharing all of this with you soon.
