Snow Clean Up Tips & Tricks From Your Olathe Landscape Company
Here are a few tips and tricks to ensure you efficiently clean up your driveway and sidewalk area when a small snow occurs:
First and foremost – be safe! There’s no reason to run around injuring yourself by trying to clean a foot of snow off your driveway, especially if physical fitness isn’t your forte. A large amount of snow gets heavy, and you can hurt yourself trying to move it with just a shovel.
There’s no reason to shovel snow twice or three times. Don’t move snow into piles in the driveway and then into smaller piles off the driveway. Immediately move the snow off of your driveway. This will allow you to avoid overworking yourself. Just don’t do it – don’t move snow twice.
If you’re going to shovel snow, then you need to get a great shovel. You can cut your snow shoveling time and workload if you get the proper shovel. Head over to your local hardware store and have an expert help pick out the perfect shovel for your needs.
If you want to make snow shoveling harder than it already is, then try to shovel snow into the wind. You’ll end up doing double or triple the amount of work. Instead, work with the wind. Start on the side of the driveway the wind is coming from and let the breeze work for you – not against you.
It’s almost here. Fall is winding down. Leaves have fallen, and it’s almost time to get out the snow shovels and blowers. There’s no telling when a few inches of white powder will cover our lawns. It could be tomorrow, or maybe a month from now.
