As a landscape maintenance company in the Northeast, it’s amazing to see all four seasons well defined in our area’s climate. From triple digit heat waves to below zero winter conditions, we see the good and bad of our local weather. With winter fast approaching, we frequently see people not prepared for the coming months. In this article, we’ll go through some tips on how to keep your property safe during the winter.
Clean Your Gutters: Before the snow falls, cleaning your gutters for leaves and debris is crucial. Allowing water to flow comfortably and not back up during freezing temperatures can prevent major damage to your home. For instance, a buildup of water can cause a leaky roof or water damage to the interior and exterior of your home. Clogged gutters can also be a perfect home for insects and pests, which can also threaten the integrity of your home.
Water damage to your home during the winter months is no joke, so cleaning your gutters after your area’s leaves have fallen is key. While leaf removal is normal for homeowners to do on their own, hiring professionals can be a safer bet. According to the Consumer Products Safety Commission, 240,000 Americans were sent home after a fall from a ladder. Hiring a landscape maintenance company can keep you or a loved one from taking a tumble.
Salting Walkways and Driveways: With the rise in popularity of stone walkways, we highly recommend salting and clearing these pathways. This landscape maintenance company specializes in masonry with walkways, pool decks, and stone steps, so we get plenty of questions about when and where to salt.
For our elderly customers, this is one of the most important safety features during the winter. One bad fall could send you to the hospital, or even worse. Heavily salting main walkways from your front door to your car is the most ideal zone to cover. As a part of our property maintenance services, we offer salting for any outdoor walkway you have.
Snow Removal: A common concern of anyone looking to move to Connecticut is the amount of snow in the winter. Snow removal can often be done by any homeowner, however hiring a landscape maintenance company can provide many benefits.
For our elderly clients, removing the two feet of snow that’s fallen overnight can be a daunting task. Luckily, we can provide snow removal services under our property maintenance category. With how often we see extreme snow storms in the winter, this service includes weekly snow removal to ensure you’re never stuck.
One of the many beautiful things about our state is how we experience the pros and cons of every season. While most of our work is done in the spring and summer, keeping your property maintained during the winter months is important for your safety.
