Property Management

Mad River Property Management was formed to reflect our substantial growth into the areas of landscape design and installation, landscape maintenance, and full property management services. The quality of our work, coupled with the integrity and responsiveness of our staff has fueled our evolution from a two-person landscaping crew to a twenty-person force of experience, skill, creativity and strength. Our growth is a reflection of the relationships we’ve built with our residential and commercial customers. Our goal is to be more than just a contractor. When you hire us, we are committed to being your primary resource for all property-related matters, whether it’s dispensing advice, exchanging ideas, or actually putting the proverbial shovel in the ground. For most people, their property is their greatest investment. We’ll help you make it your greatest asset.

thumb044Landscape 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.

Our large on-site nursery is loaded with hundreds of different types and sizes of trees, shrubs and perennials, all suitable for the Mad River Valley’s climate. 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.
