Here are some snow removal hacks to lighten the load:
- Put down salt or ice melt before the snow falls. This will build a layer that makes it easier to remove the snow after it falls.
- Don’t put away the leaf blower. Leaf blowers are great for removing lightweight snow fall from walks and driveways.
- Stake the walks and driveway before the first snow. Easy to identify the borders and saves the lawn.
- Snow day for the kids? Invite the neighborhood kids for a snowman building contest. The only rule? Snow used must come from the driveway and sidewalks. Everyone wins when you provide the hot chocolate and snacks!
