3 Essential Steps of Preparing Your Property for Professional Snow Removal
In preparing your landscape for winter, it is also important to keep your landscape adequately prepared for professional snow removal.

With chilly winter weather ahead, a residential snow removal service such as TDH Landscaping is a significant advantage for maintaining your winter landscape. As the snow begins to fall, it can sometimes be stressful to worry about clearing your driveway. For many homeowners, shoveling snow can be a painful and inconvenient process. In preparing your landscape for winter, it is also important to keep your landscape adequately prepared for professional snow removal so that your driveway can be easily cleared on a snowy day. Keep these three essential preparation tips in mind as you prepare your property for professional residential snow removal this season.

Clear Accessories and Furniture from the Surrounding Area

As you are preparing for your snow removal service, it is necessary to clear a path so that this process can operate smoothly. Objects such as lawn furniture, decorative pieces, and random objects left in your outdoor space can be obstructive and could even be damaged in the snow removal process. With this in mind, it is crucial to clear your driveway or patio of any unnecessary objects that may be damaged if left outside. Lawn furniture, maintenance equipment, and outdoor planters should all be stowed away safely in your garage or storage area.

Mark Important Areas of Your Property

Provide clear and visible markers to protect your landscape from potential damage during the snow removal process. These markers will serve to establish a designated work area for your snow removal service. Areas such as any renovation sites on your property should be marked off, in addition to driveways, walkways, and hardscape areas. Without distinct markers, your lawn may be torn or displaced accidentally, which can be damaging and require costly repairs down the road.

Clear Snow from Potential Runoff Areas

After an accumulation of snow is removed from your driveway, some additional steps can further protect your landscape. Ensure that areas around your property, such as doors, walkways, and your mailbox area, are cleared of snow. This step will help to prevent snow runoff that could potentially damage your lawn. Not only will this keep snow away from entrances to your home, but it will also help to keep your landscape healthy for spring.
