How to Protect Your Yard During Snow Season

One thing about Maryland weather that can get old quickly is the snow. A fresh snowfall in the middle of the night makes it difficult to back out of the driveway in the morning. Even if you are working from home, you will eventually need to leave your house. Protecting your yard in the winter will prevent a hassle in the spring. At Valley Landscaping, Stone & Patio, we offer all of the services you need, from hardscape to landscape. Contact us directly by calling 410.983.6261 to start planning your springtime yard renovations. 

Mark Your Lawn to Alert the Driver

Putting small, bright-colored flags in the corners of your yard will help drivers avoid making tire marks in the grass. It is important to make sure that your yard stays protected from the plow and snow shovel. It’s easy to run over the lawn in your car if the ground is covered in snow. It’s difficult to stay on the driveway if you can’t see the driveway. Every spring, we get calls from people who have destroyed their walkways and lawns by accidentally backing over them. As helpful as snowplows can be, they are responsible for quite a bit of yard damage. When your yard is protected, there are many benefits to using a professional snowplow. Those include:

  • Minimizing the amount of physical work you have to do
  • Limiting the amount of damage done to your yard in the process
  • Ensuring you don’t get stuck in the drifts this winter
  • Helping to ensure visitors to your home have the ability to get in and out with ease
  • Ensuring your drive and walkways are in good condition for visitors

Our team at Valley Landscaping, Stone & Patio can provide you with professional service whenever you need it. With our professional landscaping team, your yard will be looking its best all year ’round. A beautiful yard in the spring starts with winter maintenance. While the future is always uncertain, people will likely be spending a lot of time outdoors in 2021. Valley LSP can help keep your yard looking photo-ready.

Avoid Using Toxic Ice Melters

Be sure to purchase non-toxic ice melter products in order to protect your lawn and the soil under it. We have plenty of suggestions at Valley LSP, and it takes just a few minutes to give our team a call. When it rains, everything material on your walkways gets washed into your landscaping. This can cause chemical changes in the soil and be harmful to plants in your yard. Our team is happy to help keep your yard looking great.
