It seems in the last few years, technology has become more and more prevalent in the green industry. From emerging technologies like drones and robomowers, to more companies using more common technologies like software programs, contractors appear to have a greater reliance on technology.

To get a better grasp on this assumption, we surveyed almost 250 contractors to find out if they are embracing technology more than in the past, and, if so, if it’s worth the investment.

This report from our June issue features exclusive research from the survey, along with interviews with contractors from around the country to get concrete examples on how landscapers and LCOs use software, new equipment and other “toys” at their companies.
