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.

There are several types of sidewalk ice melt products.  Application is at  a “per-bag” price which includes labor.



Look what people are saying...

I sleep well at night during a snowstorm because I've learned that no matter how large the storm, Lawn By The Yard will have our two large church campuses plowed promptly. They have provided us great service for years. I highly recommend Lawn By The Yard for both lawn service and snowplowing.
