Coivic Contracting Ltd. is a family-owned and operated business, now in it second generation. Since its inception in 1980 by Manuel Coito, the Coivic team has built some of the most prestigious gardens in Southern Ontario. With a focus on high-quality landscape construction, exceptional stone work, and meticulous planting practices, a solid reputation in the landscape industry has been built. We continue to collaborate with many prestigious Landscape Architects in the Toronto area, constantly finding new and more efficient ways to build complex landscapes. Coivic has also grown to become a multi-faceted force in the landscape construction industry of Southern Ontario. We now offer several landscape services, including landscape designs by experienced in-house Landscape Architects, and a landscape maintenance and garden care division for when your project is completed! Our most recent development is Coivic's Specimen Tree Farm, our on-site nursery which specializes in hand-selected specimen pieces, large flowering shrubs, deciduous and evergreen plant material. Our nursery is always open to contractors and we welcome you to bring your clients along to select material for their homes. We always have a large selection to choose from and a fleet of truck ready to deliver plant material, or our in-house soils, mulches and aggregates. Exceptional quality has been the driving force behind a business that has been built almost entirely by word of mouth referrals - we invite you to check out our portfolio and contact us for your all landscape needs.
