美国人似乎认为投资照顾院子的投资是很重要的，其中40％的人在去年雇用了专业人士的草坪或景观。According to an online survey commissioned by the National Association of Landscape Professional’s (NALP’s) Industry Growth Initiative and conducted by Harris Poll in September – October 2017, the top services used among Americans who have hired a lawn/landscaping professional in the past 12 months include tree care (51%), mowing (50%), lawn pest control (46%), and weed prevention and control (42%).
Other survey results include the fact that among those who have a lawn or landscaping at their home, married individuals are more likely than those who aren’t married to have invested in lawn care and/or landscape maintenance services for their home in the past 12 months (45% vs. 33%).
美国人的原因是什么不聘请草坪护理或景观维护专业人士？Sixty-two percent of those who didn’t hire a lawn/landscape professional in the past 12 months say the costs is too high, while nearly half (49%) say they enjoy caring for their lawn themselves and 43 percent believe their yard is fine as is.
本调查在美国在2017年9月28日至10月2日至10月2日之间代表NALP在美国在线进行在线进行，其中1,721岁以上18岁以上的成年人，他有一个带有草坪/景观的房屋。An additional, abbreviated survey was conducted online within the United States by Harris Poll on behalf of NALP between October 26-30, 2017 among 1,594 adults ages 18+ who have a home with lawn/landscaping, as it was determined a query on homeowners’ behaviors with the application of fertilizer to their lawns was inadvertently omitted from the original survey. These online surveys are not based on a probability sample and therefore no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
