Every industry has been affected by supply chain struggles in one way or another recently and the landscape industry is no exception. Landscape professionals and supply companies have experienced issues with raw material and plant shortages, delays with receiving equipment and cost increases across the board, caused by the COVID pandemic, increased consumer demand for outdoor products, labour shortages, extreme weather and freight and logistics issues. In this session we will hear from representatives in a number of landscape sectors on what supply chain issues they are experiencing, how to manage current shortages and their supply chain forecast for the next 1-2 years.
