The colder months approach, and in Duxbury, MA, this fact means snowfall. Dealing with accumulated frozen precipitation is often an endeavor that requires professional assistance. Choosing the right company shouldn’t be attempted without an adequate look into its qualifications. The risk to your property as well as adequate snow removal demand a company that has the experience and credibility to offer assured, quality service.
Choosing Type of Snow Management
Dealing with the accumulated snow on your property will require either removal or plowing of the snow on the ground. Most homeowners concentrate on driveways, walkways, and other functional areas of the landscape, and most properties have a space where a hill of snow can rest until spring. The specific choice will depend on the needs of your property, budgetary choices, and other preferences. Towne Tree and Landscaping can help you with commercial de-icing, ice control, relocating piled snow if needed, snow blowing, shoveling, and sidewalk clearing and maintenance, as well as offer certified snow reports.
Potential Risks to Property
Because dealing with snow can affect the quality of your landscape, choosing the right company is important. While you might think of it as simply moving snow, the heavy-duty equipment used can harm the ground, especially if it’s soft due to moisture. Rutting the ground, affecting underground pipes, and other damage are all potential consequences. Chemicals and salts which are often used to melt snow can also damage plantings and affect the quality of the soil. To make sure that snow removal efforts don’t damage your landscape, book with the same company responsible for your regular grounds-keeping to maintain a continuity of awareness of your landscaping needs, and make sure that the company chosen is qualified, experienced, and committed. Towne Tree and Landscaping conducts snow and ice management with the same sensitivity to the environment as we do with landscaping and maintenance.
We understand that waiting around for snow removal isn’t an option when you have a life to lead. Being able to safely enter and exit your driveway and walkway are the reasons for booking the service, so Towne Tree and Landscape endeavors to anticipate your needs and act accordingly.
You must also make sure that the company has the needed insurance. As previously indicated, this job isn’t without danger or risk to your property. Before signing on the dotted line or booking a service for snow removal, check that the company has an appropriate level of insurance as well as any required bonds or licenses from the municipality. Towne Tree and Landscaping can offer this documentation upon request to give you peace of mind.
Perhaps the most telling indicator of whether you should book with a company for snow removal is the reputation of the company. While in-person, firsthand accounts are more credible, verified online reviews are also helpful; although, it’s helpful to remember that all can’t be considered. The need for snow management is predictable, so making an informed, thoughtful decision is totally possible and should be expected as one more aspect of preparing for winter.
