2021 Landscape Season in Markham & GTA

Summer 2021 Collage

As many of you know, Spring 2020 was the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown here in Ontario. With restrictions that seemed to change daily, there was a lot of uncertainty and sales were slow from April through May. However early summer brought about a boom in landscape design consultations.

We soon discovered that most people realized the COVID-19 lockdown was going to be a long-term situation; and that meant no traveling, events, attractions, camp, or even sports for the foreseeable future. Our customers were instantly spending more time than ever at home and were eager to create outdoor living spaces and landscapes that suited their new lifestyle. Whether it was creating a safe place for their kids to play outdoors, or installing outdoor entertainment spaces, patios, firepits, or pool installations, our customers wanted to maximize their useable living space.

MPS took action to protect the health of our employees and customers while continuing to offer residential landscape design and build, as well as commercial grounds maintenance services. To ensure our MPS staff were safe, we implemented the following:

  • Installed plexiglass dividers in the necessary trucks
  • Cleaning and sanitization kits were supplied to all crews
  • Porta potties were placed on job sites
  • Mandatory facemasks, when necessary
  • COVID-19 prevention & operations training

Here is what MPS is expecting for the landscape industry this summer

One word, BUSY! Our landscape design and sales team has worked harder than ever this winter, creating stunning (and functional) custom landscape designs for customers who are eager to start their 2021 landscape projects. With the borders still closed and international travel discouraged, we anticipate most people will be staying close to home this summer and looking to make improvements to their landscape. We’ve even heard from other industry professionals that most pool companies are booked well into summer 2022! If you’re hoping to make some changes to your landscape this summer, don’t wait – contact us today.

Some fun ideas that we’ve been incorporating into our 2021 landscape designs:

  • Play-areas for kids
  • Putting greens
  • Basketball courts
  • Outdoor kitchens and bars
  • Outdoor theater and TV areas
  • LOTS of outdoor lounge areas
