It may be winter now, but that doesn’t mean you can’t plan ahead—specifically, to the vibrant landscapes we’ll work on in spring and summer. At Cataldo Landscape & Masonry, we believe that a well-thought-out plan during the winter months is the best way to transform your outdoor space with a Wellesley landscaper when warmer weather arrives.
Here’s what you can do over the winter to prepare to work with your Wellesley landscaper in the spring and summer.
Craft Your Vision
Now is the ideal moment to evaluate your outdoor space and envision the improvements you’d like to make. Assess your current landscaping features, consider potential changes, and develop a comprehensive plan for your project. Whether you’re dreaming of blooming flower beds, inviting walkways, or cozy outdoor living spaces, winter is the time to conceptualize your ideal landscape.
Selecting the Right Plants
Researching and selecting plants suited to your local climate is a crucial step in ensuring a thriving garden. We suggest identifying plants that flourish in the spring and summer, taking into account factors like sunlight, soil conditions, and water requirements. With our guidance, you can choose a diverse range of plants to add texture, color, and seasonal interest to your outdoor oasis.
Don’t wait until the last minute to bring your vision to life. Winter is the opportune time to order seeds and plants, securing their availability for the upcoming season. To get a head start on the growing season, look into plants that you can cultivate indoors and then move outside in the spring. Ordering your plants now also ensures that you can get what you want rather than being limited to what your local nursery has in stock.
Soil Preparation and Hardscaping Plans
A thriving garden begins with healthy soil. Take advantage of the winter months to improve your soil by adding organic matter like compost. We also recommend planning any hardscaping elements, such as patios or walkways, during this time. By preparing the soil and planning hardscape features in advance, you set the foundation for a successful landscaping project.

At Cataldo Landscape & Masonry, we know the importance of planning ahead. Even though you can’t dig a bed or lay a patio this time of year, you can still plan ahead. If you have a detailed plan before you begin your landscaping project, you’ll be ready come spring.
