A sudden drop in temperatures in Denver is expected starting Thursday night and going into Saturday. This is a dramatic difference from the last week where high temperatures this last week were in the upper 60’s. Two storm fronts are colliding over the metro area. The artic front is pushing in and the second front is bringing up moisture from the Gulf of Mexico. This system is similar to the blizzards experienced in both the March snow storm of 2003 and the Christmas blizzards of 2006 both of which left over 2-3 feet of heavy wet snow across the metro area.

This snow storm will bring much needed precipitation for lawns and gardens across the Denver metro area. Snowfall now will help to increase the snow pack, providing water for many states across the United States of America. Much moisture will also be stored into the soil for use during the dry times of the summer. This storm should start off as rain and turn over to snow in the early morning hours.

March snow storms bring a heavy wet snow. Make sure you have scoop snow shovels to combat this heavy white menace. When shoveling it is important to scoop small sections(3-4 inches at a time), from top to bottom, in order to not break the snow shovel. If you have a push shovel the best way to combat this storm is by shoveling multiple times throughout the storm. Whenever shoveling snow, make sure you clear the snow from all the pavement and concrete. A buffer strip along this edge should be established to prevent and reduce possible ice from the melting snow flooding over the sidewalk.

If this snow storm is too much for you, we at A Better Garden Maintenance will happily set up a snow removal contract for your home or commercial property. We offer snow plowing services, snow shoveling services and ice prevention & removal materials application as each site requires. Give us a call at (303) 433 – 3750 to get your property serviced.
