Snow removal might not seem like the most complex process, but it’s not as easy or as simple as it looks. Not only can it be tiring work, but clearing driveways, gardens, parking lots, or even entryways requires expertise and great care to ensure you’re not endangering anybody walking on that ground.
So, before you pick up a snow blower or other snow removal tools, we think it’s important you consider the following three things.
Protect Your Green Spaces!
Shovels, snow blowers, or any other kind of snow removal tool can cause serious damage to your garden. Snow might cover your grass and flower beds, but as soon as that snow melts, your garden will have an opportunity to either regrow or continue growing.
Shovels and tools can cause damage to flower beds and lawns, so be sure to keep this in mind when clearing away snow. Look for the lines where the garden meets the pavement, and be careful not to go over those lines.
Avoid trying to clear snow away from branches and leaves, too. Plants have survived millennia without help from humans, so they can survive a little snow!
Always Use Deicing Agents
One of the most important services we offer at Earth Development is deicing. Using a melting agent, we prepare your outdoor surfaces for the snow and cold weather.
If you have a garden sprayer and a deicing agent, use it before you think the snow is about to arrive. This stops the ice from bonding to the ground too easily and also reduces the amount of freezing that takes place.
Shovel Snow Regularly
Finally, don’t leave the shoveling all to the last minute. It’s important to keep on top of snow shoveling, removing snow even as it continues falling.
Not only does it make it easier to keep on top of it, but it stops ice bonding to the ground as easily. Whenever the snow builds up more than you would like, get out there and move it!
