Ice Management

We normally spread salt treated with Magnesium Chloride on parking lots because it is cost effective and works well at varying temperatures. The Mag also causes the salt to work faster and helps stop future accumulations from bonding with the pavement.

Pure salt is cheaper and works well at warmer temperatures - 15 F and up.

Salt/Sand is meant to improve traction over ice.  It is even less expensive than plain salt, but tracks in to buildings and requires extensive clean up in spring.

We can provide this service on either a semi-automatic basis or a per call basis.  This means that I will come to your property whenever I feel it is necessary to maintain a pre-set threshold for ice control.  However, due to varying conditions, on site staff may periodically need to order this service.

Look what people are saying...

I can't say enough good things about Nick and his crew.

About a year and a half ago I was assigned the task of hiring a new grounds care company since our current one at the time was failing us miserably. I looked at about 10 – 15 companies very closely. I called each one and acquired as much information as I possibly could. Finally we narrowed the search down to 3 and Lawn by the Yard was one of those 3.

What made this company stand out to us was that Nick (the owner) insisted on coming out to our property and walking through it with me. He wanted me to point out the association's issues and also express issues that he saw and how he could correct them. He was the only company that insisted on doing this. I felt if Nick is willing to go the extra mile just to understand our needs before we even talk about hiring him then he has already out shined his competition.
