Winter Is Coming: Tips for Taking Care of the Snow

Winter is coming soon and if you live in an area that gets a lot of snow you need to make plans to take care of it. Snow can cause a lot of damage if it hangs around for a long time. Keep reading so snow will not damage your winter so you and your family can enjoy your time.

Use a Snow Shovel

One way to remove snow is simply with a snow shovel. This will work well if you have a small property. The only place you would need to focus on is the driveway and anywhere your family walks outside, such as a walkway leading to your front porch. 

Shoveling snow is hard work and you could easily injure yourself if you do not do it in the right way. Make sure you bend your knees and then once the snow is on the shovel lift it with your legs. If you are going to be snow shoveling for a long time switch between your left and right hand. If you are shoveling heavy snow only shovel parts at a time instead of trying to lift from the ground. 

When snow shoveling your driveway do it in small sections at a time. This will help prevent you from making large piles of snow next to your driveway. If you do this, then you would have to shovel these large piles which will double your work. 

Hire a Snow Removal Company

If you live on a large property or simply do not have time, contact a snow removal company. They have equipment that will remove your snow much quicker than you can. If you have a very long driveway the snow removal company will use a truck with a large plow attached to it. 

The snow removal company also uses snow blowers to remove snow. These are much like leaf blowers but instead of leaves remove snow. They have large snow blowers that do the job quickly. There are snowblowers that you can purchase for yourself. These can be handy to have around because you could blow the snow away faster than you could shovel it. The snow removal company can tell you the best type of snow blower to purchase and where to purchase it.

If your area will be getting a lot of snow throughout the winter, set up a schedule with the snow removal company. They could come to your property once a week or more.  

Snow removal companies like Decarlo Landscape Design & Maintenance can give you much more information on how they remove snow.

Making Over My Yard

After we purchased our first home, I realized that there were a few things in the yard we needed to focus on. In addition to going through and weeding the entire area, we also started thinking about things that we could plant that would add a little interest. It was really incredible to see how much of a difference our efforts made, and pretty soon our yard was one of the nicest ones in our neighborhood. Believe it or not, we even had people asking us who did the work professionally, which was hilarious because we were just doing the best we could. This blog is all about making over your yard with the right landscaping.
