HARD TIMES LAWN & GARDEN SURVEY
Is the gardening market recession-proof? NGA's new Hard Times L&G Survey provides factual data not available from any other source.
In previous recessions the overall garden market held strong, but not in the current recession. Most people cut about $80 from the average spent on their lawns and gardens last year. The average spent in 2009 was $363 compared to $444 in 2008. Total retail sales were down 16% from $36.1 billion in 2008 to $30.1 billion in 2009. Many garden retailers saw strong sales of consumables, but not big-ticket items. Want to know more?
