Snowfall is beautiful but once ice melts problems starts. One of these problems they come with is they damage to your lawns. We tell steps to prevent damage to your lawn and gardens by ice melt. Salt is very toxic to grass when it gets dissolved in water because the needed potassium and phosphorus in the soil gets replaced with sodium ions, robbing them from your shrubs and plants. Rock salt absorbs the water that would normally be used by roots, which in turn dehydrate them and make plans stressed.
Few tips to keep your sidewalks clear and plants safe :
• Do not over-salt! Follow label directions precisely.
• Make sure you avoid rock salt in extreme cold. Salt is effective most at temperatures below the freezing point.
• De-icing agents such as calcium-chloride, or calcium magnesium acetate, are salt-free and should be used in extreme cold.
• In extreme cold, sprinkle water lightly over surface before you apply the ice melt for better results.
• Erect barriers with plastic fencing, burlap or snow fencing to protect sensitive plants.
• For plants that do get sprayed by salt, use a broom and lightly brush salt off of the plants. You may not see the damage to plants and trees by salt or ice melt until spring.
• Shovel ice and snow as soon as possible, and try to keep sidewalks and paths clear to avoid re-applying.
