The American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) recently released the results of a survey of more than 4,000 landscape architecture firms about residential and hospitality design and product selection.

“Among the most frequent requests we receive from landscape architects is for more information on outdoor furnishings for residential and hospitality projects,” said Ann Looper Pryor, managing director of publishing and resource development for ASLA.

“This survey confirmed anecdotal evidence that most landscape architects now select the furnishings for their projects, from contract to custom. This is a new lucrative market for high-quality outdoor furniture, appliance and accessory companies.”

Here are some highlights of the ASLA survey:

Eighty-one percent of firms provide residential design services.

• The average firm designs between six and 20 residential projects per year; 24% design more than 21 projects per year, and 14% design more than 30 projects per year.

• 91% include outdoor kitchens in residential projects.

• 96% include a fireplace, fire pit or other fire features in residential projects.

• 68% include heating or cooling features in residential projects.

• 97% include water features (ponds, pools, fountains) in residential projects.

• The typical residential landscape project budget is $250,000-$500,000; for 10% of firms, it is $500,000 to more than $1 million.
