Home & Cottage Yard Services

You may be inclined to hire someone else to help maintain the grounds at your cottage to lengthen your leisure time. Certain jobs, however, like felling dead trees, are best left to the professionals. You’ll find arborists in the Kawarthas and people who provide tree removal services.

Perhaps you’re interested in finding a local person whose specialty is gardening or landscaping. Or maybe you plan to build an attractive stone retaining wall or restore the shoreline fronting your property.

In the spring or summer, if you are on the hunt for hanging baskets or plants native to Kawartha Lakes, you might want to head to a local nursery.

If you fancy a new stone fireplace or chimney at your cottage, a call to a local stonemason would certainly be a wise move.

Whatever your project, there are lots of people in the Kawarthas who can help you with odd jobs around your cottage property.
