Landscaping wait grows – Leader Post

Reginans who want their yards landscaped can thank the current boom in the housing industry for longer-than-normal wait times.

Landscaping architects and contractors alike are struggling to keep up with a higher-than-normal demand for their services.

“Like all the other aspects of the construction industry, the landscape side is certainly booming,” agreed Cam Patterson, senior landscape architect for Stantec Consulting Ltd. and past-president of the Saskatchewan Association of Landscape Architects.

The increase in demand for landscaping services is translating into longer wait times for customers. “Projects are definitely taking longer to get built,” Patterson said. “Our biggest problem is finding people to do the work from the design side. We’re looking to hire,” Patterson said.
