Yearly property maintenance is the perfect way to deal with seasonal problems effectively. With winter being the harshest of all seasons, taking good precaution is the safe way to keep a healthy garden but snow will still fall. It will cover the plants, the roof of the house and driveways. If you have taken precautions all the better but still snow removal maintenance is required.
When the plants are covered with burlap materials, they will withstand the cold weather best and will breathe. Still, snow will cover the tree branches and the pathways and although it will be safe enough as long as it is soft, it will soon turn into ice and will be a true hazard.
Avoid accidents with snow removal maintenance
Your safety comes before everything else and that’s why snow removal is important. In practice, snow must be removed before it becomes ice. Then, it won’t only be harder to break it but it will also be dangerous. When snow falls and the temperatures are still very low, soft snow will soon turn into a slippery hazard. It will be a hazard for those on foot but also for cars. For this reason, both pathways and driveways must be thoroughly cleaned. The ground must also be covered with sand and salt so that it won’t be slippery at all.
Snow looks good on roofs. It looks good on trees. Though, it can be one more reason for accidents. Snow can easily slip and fall from the roof. It will burden the tree sticks and there is a high possibility that they will break. Apart from making a mess in the garden, they might also fall on someone. You need to take care of snow when it is still soft and especially if the tree branches extend out of the yard so that you can avoid lawsuits from people getting injured from your tree sticks. Though, don’t stand under the branches to remove the snow. If the branch breaks, it will hurt you. It will also be convenient to clean all paths leading to the exit of the property or the garbage cans.
Remember that the sooner snow is removed, the easier the job will be. At the same time, you will need to have the right tools but avoid engaging in such tasks if you are elderly or have heart problems. In these cases, it’s best to trust the services of Greenbloom Landscaping so that you will have the job done and remain healthy to enjoy the white season from the window of your house.
