At Mad River Property Management we have access to hundreds of varieties of shrubbery, many locally grown and cultivated trees and perennials, and a vast selection of annuals — all suitable for the Mad River Valley’s climate.
To accent your property, we plant trees and shrubs as well as install and maintain perennial gardens and lawns.
Using a variety of hardy perennials, we can create beautiful gardens that will last for years to come. We know Vermont has hard winters for plants, and we only install those we know will be able to thrive.
Building a house or moving into a newly built property? We would love to help you design and maintain your lawn, gardens and stonework.
Landscape Design & Installation
Up here in the mountains of Vermont, the creation of a beautiful and functional landscape can be a daunting task. Rocky soil, frigid winter weather, and the large population of hungry herbivores are just some of the challenges that property owners face. We can help you design a landscape that works with and complements the existing site.
Whether planting large specimen trees or installing perennial gardens, you can trust the quality and hardiness of anything we put in the ground. Stone walls, patios and walkways will add permanent structure to your landscape, as well as providing lasting value. From clearing your site to installing your lawn, we take pride in all facets of landscape improvement.
- Sitework: Excavation, drainage, grading, ponds
- Trees, Shrubs & Perennials: Design & installation
- Stonework: Walls, patios & walkways using locally quarried stone, fieldstone, pavers, bluestone, etc.
- Retaining Walls: Stone, timbers, modular block
- Lawn Installation: Sod & manual seeding
- Light Clearing: Tree cutting & removal
- Carpentry: Design and installation of decks, gazebos, sheds, etc.
In addition to planting we have a stone crew that specializes in walls, patios and terraced gardens. Using stone harvested from a local quarry, our stone crew can build into existing ledges or take a newly planted lawn and create terraces for sitting areas and other gardens.
With two skid steers and our mini excavator/loader on site, we are able to move and set boulders, do light logging and forestry management, tree and shrub removal and planting, as well as build stone patios and walkways, retaining and rock walls, turning even the largest landscape plans into realities.
With the aforementioned machines, we are also able to improve drainage on your property and clear brush and trees.
Don’t forget your patios, walkways and decks. We have a great team that will install that patio or deck you’ve been dreaming of.
Our experienced and helpful staff is always on hand to help you design and install your perennial beds, rock gardens, flower boxes and potted gardens. We also enjoy working on larger scale landscaping projects. Whatever the project we have the equipment and the experience to get the job done.
Fall Projects and Services
Fall is the time to think about planting your spring blooming bulbs, pruning your bushes, and putting your vegetable and flower gardens to bed. It’s also time to fertilize your yard and work on brush cleanup. The knowledgeable staff at Mad River Property Management is ready to help with all your Fall projects. We are able to help you re-pot, transplant, and feed your indoor plants for the season. Outside we have two skid steers to get your brush cleanup done and your yard ready for winter. Fall is a good time for our landscapers to plant perennial beds, trim your trees and shrubs and get your yard and landscaping ready for next year.
Please contact Ed Read with your ideas, large or small, and he would be more than happy to discuss them with you. Whether you want your lawn mowed or you have a new property ready to have a lawn, gardens, and stonework installed, we would love to help.
