Over the last few years the winters have been harsh with deep snow and freezing conditions, and if some predictions are true as the planet warms we British are going to get colder winters! I lived in Canada and absolutely love the snow, yet for most of us it is an inconvenience.
Dealing with snow can also be hard, it weighs a lot, covers everything and gets you at the worst times in the mornings when you are trying to get to work or the kids to school. I advise all my clients to have a supply of Rock salt or grit to hand, something Mow-N-Blow provides as this really does help. If you want to get a snow shovel get one with a long handle as it makes it easier and use it often as it is surprising how back breaking clearing snow can be. Snow is heavy and breaks roofs of sheds and tree branches so if possible keep these clear too.
If this all sounds like hard work give us a call and Mow-N-Blow can do it for you, provided we can get out of our drive!
