Have you ever felt that your current contractor is supplementing their low snow plowing cost with frequent and unnecessary salt applications to make up for it? Constantly, new customers share with us that they were salted 40-50 times last year. In our eyes, this is unacceptable.
Our staff is Smart About Salt accredited which has them making smart decisions while monitoring sites and allows them to make an educated judgement about when salt is needed. We are also conscious of the cost of salt and that it’s a variable that can quickly exceed your budget. We truly believe that we should be paid only for services that are needed. With this education and attention to the safety of our customers’ sites, we have still never required more than thirty salts in any season over the last 12 years. Over the years, we have managed to save our customers a lot of money because we don’t overcharge on salt applications. Our attention to detail is indicative in the fact that we’ve have never had a slip and fall judgement.
Another very important reason that we don’t have to salt as often is because we use treated salt during every application. Treated salt has a greater impact on hard surfaces. It works at a much lower temperature and also leaves a residue on the ground to help keep water from freezing or bonding to pavement. Because of its greater melting qualities and staying power, it allows us to use less which creates less impact on the environment.
Don’t be fooled by the low plowing price and open salt application costs that some landscaping companies offer. Our winter motto is pay for what you get: great quality and exceptional service, all while staying on budget.
