Crystal Ball on Landscape Pick Up

Is the nursery business about ready to turn the corner? There seems to be a steady gain in the economy in non-residential construction. According to the crystal ball that is the American Institute of Architects (AIA). Reuters (March 30, 2011) relayed an article and was covered by Nursery Management reporting that the AIA announced that their Architecture Billings Index ticked up 0.6 to a score of 50.6 (A score over 50 is a positive indicator) meaning that billings by architectural firms are improving. This is the fourth month in a row that the indicator is above 50. This is an early indicator of construction plans that are on the drafting boards nine to 12 months away from breaking ground. Where there is construction plans, there is usually plans for landscapes as well. For further information about the article here is the link. www.tiny.cc/zvpgz
