The lawn and garden store sector includes stores that primarily sell nursery or garden products that are grown elsewhere and stores that primarily sell outdoor lawn and garden power equipment.
Total lawn and garden store employment in Kansas was approximately 2,300 in 2013, with employment of five in the median county in the state in this sector. Johnson County, Sedgwick County, and Riley County had the highest total employment and sales in the sector in the state.
Thirty-one Kansas counties were identified as not having any establishments classified as lawn and garden store establishments in the dataset, which could indicate either a lack of these stores in those areas, or establishments classified in another retail sector could also be providing lawn and garden products. Twenty-six of these counties had a population less than 5,000 people.
