Snow removal is important in the Denver area.  Melting snow causes ice in parking lots, sidewalks and entrances to apartment buildings & businesses.  Timely service is required to prevent snow pack and ice.  Ice removal materials are sometimes needed to provide a safer environment, allowing traction for both parking lots and walkways.  Whatever your property needs A Better Garden is able to provide the correct & appropriate snow removal services.  Each site is serviced in regards to its unique characteristics such as slope, high pedestrian traffic or handicap spaces & walkways.

Parking lots which have snow plowing performed are usually dry within days of the snow event.  Snow which is not removed in parking lots get compacted by cars, causing ice, and remains in the parking lot for weeks with colder temperatures.  Once this happens snow plowing has little effect and simply bounces off the ice pack.  At this point heavy equipment such as a front end loader, grader or bobcat are needed to break the ice & snow pack.   Sometimes even this isn’t enough and ice removal materials are needed.

Ice removal materials provide a safer environment for the people who are driving in the freshly plowed parking lot or walking across recently shoveled sidewalks.  Once snow removal is performed, various materials can be used according to your needs.  In parking lots, after the snow plowing is done, a sand & salt mixture or ice slicer is put down to provide a  safer area for business customers or HOA residents to traverse.  Sand & salt mixture helps melt snow pack & ice as well as providing  traction to vehicles & people.  Ice slicer is a mined substance of clay which is naturally coated with magnesium, calcium and sodium chlorides.  Use of sand & salt on any high pedestrian traffic area is highly discouraged as the sand can cause people to slip on dry sidewalks.  In pathway and sidewalks which are shoveled, only various forms of ice melt should be utilized.  This include blends of sodium, calcium and magnesium chlorides  to give better control of snow at lower temperatures.   De-icing materials & services should be utilized as needed to ensure the safety of residents, workers &  customers.

Each property is unique  and has its own specific snow removal needs.  During snow shoveling at all properties sidewalks and pathways are completely cleared of snow.  In all situation we are taking steps to ensure the majority of the snow placement is at downhill locations.  Placement and complete removal of snow aid in preventing melting snow from forming ice across concrete surfaces.    This prevention includes where the snow is placed when plowed or shoveled.  Heavily trafficked areas & north sides of buildings, large trees & bushes need more attention.  Handicap spaces need extra attention during snow removal to maintain the ease of access for people with disabilities.  At A Better Garden we look at the specifics for each property to provide the best possible services.
