How to tackle the Denver snow - from your Denver landscaping specialists
December 11, 2019
Snow came quickly this year! With the cold (almost freezing) temperatures and snow on the horizon, it’s important to prepare yourself for how you’ll tackle the winter snow. This is particularly important if you have sidewalks outside of your home that you are responsible for plowing/taking care of. We have compiled our favorite tips for tackling the Denver snow.
When preparing for a heavy snow, you have two options in terms of how you’ll handle snow removal: a snow shovel/blower or salt. The first step, no matter what route you decide to take is to make sure you have the right equipment. You can pick up most equipment at a hardware store, but if you are looking to salt your sidewalks that can even be found at most grocery stores. We typically recommend that you invest in a snow shovel/blower and prepare to salt your sidewalks/driveway.
When selecting your salt, make sure you read the labels. If you have pets, you’ll need to get a pet friendly product to make sure your furry creatures won’t be adversely affected by whatever you purchase. Some products can be toxic to animals - choose wisely!
No matter what, you should make sure someone is inside the home in case of an accident, and dress for the weather. It’s important that if you’re going to spend ample time outside that you are wearing gloves, have your ears covered, and are bundled up! Here are the steps we recommend to snow removal:
Take time to remove all existing snow with a snow shovel or blower prior to application of the salt.
Use a cup when distributing the salt across your driveway, sidewalks and entryway. It’ll help with even distribution and keep you from possibly having skin to salt contact.
When distributing, make sure you leave a thin layer of the salt - this is going to be the most effective way to get results.
Observe. If you notice that certain areas of the sidewalks get more sun than others, this means that these areas will likely freeze at night. Be sure that you place plenty of salt in these areas.
