What's it like being a woman in the landscaping industry?

I'm thinking of the kinds of jobs that have you outdoors all day rather than at a computer drafting garden designs. I'm also especially curious about "groundskeeping" jobs at universities. Are there still a lot of barriers to entry/are things extra-difficult for a woman in this field? Would it be a next-to-impossible field for a shy, very introverted woman? This field gets recommended a lot for quiet loner types, though I don't know if this recommendation applies mainly to men.
