Don't Make This Winter Landscaping Mistake!
I'm sure you are watching the temps drop like we are!
I think it's safe to say that winter is right around the corner, whether we are ready or not. Regardless, here's one mistake we want to prevent this season...
Don't use rock salt on your patios, walkways, or near your plants!
Rock salt (known also as sodium chloride and road salt) can cause staining, streaking, and even corroding pavers and bricks. The last thing you want it for the snow to melt this spring and you find awful staining leftover on your patio or walkway.
Not to mention, it can actually harm your plants, too. Most plants do not thrive in soils with high salt content, so when salty water runs off into the soil, it can really do some damage in the plant department as well.
What do I use instead?
We know it's not always convenient, but removing snow and ice with a shovel and snowplow right away is the best method!
And if all else fails, sand and/or Calcium Magnesium Acetate can be used on most surfaces!
