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...

"Lawn by the Yard is great to work with.  Nick and his team are very accommodating to the special needs of our condo building and never make us feel like we are asking for too much.  I would (and have) recommended them to others for all their landscaping and snow removal needs."
