Handle Your Drainage Now!

Posted on December 8, 2016

We’ve mentioned New England once or twice before at Cataldo Landscape and Masonry, and that’s Stone Steps & Landscapingbecause it has some serious impact on our yards! Not only are we faced with the brutally harsh weather extremes, but it’s also unpredictable! We have gone through weeks of frigid January weather only to encounter three days of spring-like conditions in February. There’s no telling what this winter will bring, but we want our customers prepared for the snow that will come and melt by handling drainage systems before the winter.

All the way until mid-December, Cataldo works with clients to create new walkways, stone walls, and brick patios in Wellesley, MA to keep up with potential erosion and land problems that can arise from inclement weather. These issues can be an even bigger problem if an unqualified and unprofessional team installed these hardscapes.

Many homeowners face these troubles when the levels and landscape of yards are not taken into account when the original hardscape becomes part of the home. If your patios and walkways do not slope away from your home, you might find that you face water damage around your foundation, specifically in your basement. Water damage can cause many structural problems, including rot and mold. Additionally, stone walls can prevent your dirt, gardens, grass, and other landscape items from eroding, which is especially important if your home is located on or next to a hill. This erosion can ruin your landscape for the fall, and can even impact the foundation of your home if severe enough.

Whether you’re looking to replace your old hardscape or begin from scratch, Cataldo Landscape and Masonry’s team is here to help. Our services don’t stop just at the end of the warm season, and that’s because we are dedicated to our clients and protecting their homes.
