16 Sep How To Prepare For Winter
I realize it’s only September and I realize it’s like 80 degrees out right now but Minnesota weather can be sooooo finicky. Just remember last year! The weather was absolutely perfect throughout October and even into early November. Then, all of a sudden, the first big snow storm hit on November 11. So many people were caught off guard by this snow storm. We had many people calling right before the snow fell (and as it was falling). Unfortunately, at that point, it’s really hard to incorporate new properties. Our team has already dispersed our properties to drivers and made driving routes and overhead maps and all the background work that goes into the snow removal business.
Basically, here’s our message this year: don’t get caught by the first snow fall. Get yourself prepared in advance and here’s how.
Get a snow removal bid now!
Having your snow removal company all set up and ready to go in the fall relieves your stress throughout the snow season. A good snow removal company will make time for you now when there is no snow on the ground. If they don’t make time for you call and questions now, when things are slower, they definitely won’t have time for you in the middle of a blizzard. The best snow removal companies in Minneapolis will also make overhead maps of your property so the plow drivers can give you the best service. KG Landscape does all of those things for our customers and more. Fill out a bid request online or give our office a call at 763-568-7251 and one of our sales team will get you set up.
Test out your snowblower.
Yes, your neighbors might laugh at you for starting a snowblower when you’re sweating in a t-shirt. But you’ll be the one laughing when your snowblower fires up on the first pull while your neighbors have to shovel snow the hard way. Simply checking the oil and refilling the gas isn’t very complicated for most people. A test run now will save you a big headache later on.
Buy sidewalk salt.
The home improvement stores like Lowe’s and Home Depot know this too. They’ve already started to stock and display sidewalk salt. Make sure you get the right salt for the pavement materials you have for your driveway and walkway. Some salt can erode concrete or pavers so just check to make sure.
