Colorado Faces Construction Worker Shortage: Landscape Companies are Feeling the Impact

Colorado, specifically the Denver area, is facing a huge shortage of construction workers, and the green industry is feeling the impact. With more cranes in the sky than most major cities, we are expanding rapidly, and everyone is building.

With new buildings, come new landscapes, and in order to make all of this happen, there needs to be enough qualified workers to work on these projects. And there are not enough willing individuals who are entering the trades.

To combat this problem, Designscapes Colorado hires as many qualified applicants for both seasonal and full time positions that it can. But there is still a shortage. A 130 person shortage to be exact. To fill this gap, we are proud participants in the H2B Visa program. Every year, we bring up the same loyal team members to help us design, build, and maintain beautiful landscapes. We are proud to say that some of our seasonal workers have been with us for over 10 years, and we wouldn’t be the company we are today if it weren’t for the hard work of our field staff.

While the H2B Visa program certainly is not the final solution to Colorado’s labor shortage, it certainly helps in the mean time. At Colorado Designscapes, we encourage growth among our staff, and are always hiring qualified individuals. To talk about a future career in an exciting industry, please feel free to call us at (303) 721-9003, or email us at for more information about applying today!
