Property Maintenance

Fivepoint Landscaping and Services’ full-service property maintenance crew is second to none. Our professionals can take care of virtually anything exterior to your home or cottage, leaving you much, much more time to enjoy it.

In the spring, we’ll come to your property to clean up deadfall and clear away any composting leaf litter, debris, and dead vegetation. These can smother your emerging grass and perennials and negatively impact the health of your soil. If your siding has taken on some winter dirt, we’ll power wash it back to cleanliness. To keep things looking sharp, we can also clean up any docks, decks, or patios that need it.

We’ve got you

As warmer weather approaches, we’ll prepare your garden beds for planting, cut back and divide perennials, amend your soil, aerate your lawn, and plant annuals. 

In addition, we’ll prune trees and shrubs for aesthetics and to encourage healthy growth. 

Need some suggestions on the best plants for your particular location? We’ve got you covered. Fivepoint’s many years of experience planting in Muskoka’s unique terrain have given us the know-how to help you avoid disappointment and save you time and money.

As fall arrives, we’ll help you get ready for what’s coming by raking up yard debris, preparing your garden beds for winter, draining your water features, and clearing your eavestroughs. When winter comes, we can do your snow plowing and walkway clearing, making it easy for you to come to the cottage for a cozy weekend.

Our maintenance services are contract-based, which ensures you have regular property services throughout the season or year.
