Creating An Inviting Yard

I have always been one of those people who loves to create a warm, inviting atmosphere for others, which is why I started looking at landscaping design in the first place. It was incredible to me to see how much of a difference I was able to make by adding a few new plants, and after that first project, I wanted to help other people. I started volunteering to help friends and neighbors do their landscaping, and after a few months, I had developed quite a following. This blog is all about creating a warm, inviting yard through smart landscaping and an eye for detail.

4 Reasons You Need A Professional Snow Removal Service

by Addison Washington

Whether you own a business or not, professional snow removal services are beneficial to business owners and homeowners alike. Here are four reasons you should contract with a snow removal service this winter.

1. You Live in a Snow Belt

People who live in the mountains or near the Great Lakes often live in a snow belt. These areas can receive huge quantities of snow. The snow is frequently moisture laden and extremely heavy.

Manually shoveling two feet of snow is almost impossible. It can also be dangerous for people who have underlying medical conditions, have a bad back, or are unsteady on their feet, such as the elderly.

Additionally, people who live in a snow belt may need to shovel more than just their sidewalk and driveway; they need to do their roof as well. The amount of snow that accumulates in snow belt areas can easily cause a roof to collapse. With a professional snow removal service, you don't need to worry about extreme snow amounts or your safety.

2. You Own a Business

As a business owner, it is extremely important your property is accessible and safe for customers. While you may be able to delay snow removal at your residence, your business parking lot, sidewalks, and pathways must all be immediately cleared to prevent accidents and vehicles getting stuck. During severe winter storms, this may need to be done multiple times a day. The last thing you want is to lose business because your parking lot is covered in snow, or worse, open yourself to litigation if someone slips and falls.

3. You Have a Large Property

People who have a typical suburban lot may be able to handle shoveling their sidewalk and driveway themselves, but if your lot size is huge, doing it all yourself may be an impossible task. A professional snow removal service has the right equipment to quickly get the job done for you.

4. You Need to Maintain a Clear Driveway

Everyone wants to be able to come and go as they please, but for some people, being able to quickly get in and out of their driveway is paramount. For example, people have jobs that require them to be there without fail.

Physicians, first responders, and bus drivers are just a few occupations where getting stuck or being late for work is simply not an option. A professional snow removal service is the best way to ensure your driveway will always be clear.
