Industry facing possible landscaping labour shortfall
The landscaping industry is facing a labour shortage due in part to the profession's physical demands and the fact it's seasonal work. But there are rewards to be realized, professionals enaged in the industry say.
A chronic shortage of workers is plaguing the horticulture industry, an official from Landscape New Brunswick says. Executive director Jim Landry said deterrents include the physical nature of the work and that it's seasonal, but one landscaper said it's also rewarding work and gives those entering the industry a chance to be creative.
