How To Melt Ice Without Destroying Your Lawn

Snow is a fascinating time of the year. Around October till March, the winter season is on its very boom but what startles us is its fair share of the price.

Unfortunately, there is an inevitable cost, some harsh consequences, and some extra efforts attached to the snow removal process if done incorrectly. Also, snow clearing is too arduous a task for a person to do without expert help.

Since heavy snowfall has heavy damages, the snow turned into ice can cause immense scale destruction. For instance, ice on highways and roadways could lead to such devastating consequences than a person’s capacity to think. Not only that but ice on walkways and driveways can also cause slips and extreme safety hazards both for the passer-by and the residents.

In this blog, we’ll uncover all the secrets of ice removing from your lawn to protect the surface’s aesthetics and performance.

Efficient Ice Removal Tips

Undoubtedly, ice is unrelenting and previously required much labor. However, today, labor cost is now reduced as there have been numerous ways to melt ice. Products like salts, calcium chloride, urea are used to melt ice and very readily available at any farm shop in the vicinity. But these products are no good for the grass.

Most house owners have lawns and gardens that they spent time decorating throughout spring and summer, but after snowfall and melting of the ice, all the efforts are washed away if ice removal isn’t done efficiently.

Following are a few tips to ease your ice-melting process in the lawn.

1.  Prep Beforehand

There are plenty of ways to have a win-win situation, for instance, like prepping the place with NaCl before snowfall. Believe it or not, it is the best and easiest way to get away with ice because, through this method, ice does not form solid and hence can be removed easily.

For this, you need to put some salt on your lawn and driveway and leave it the next morning to remove ice and snow in the afternoon easily.

Secondly, the lesser the amount, the better for the lawn grass because once the ice is rock solid, more amount is required to melt it completely, which then causes dehydration and burning of the grass.

2. Chemical Use

If you don’t want to use NaCl, using magnesium chloride or potassium chloride is also a great way to save your lawn from ruining.

However, you may need to determine the quality and quantity of the chemicals to avoid compromising your lawn’s performance and look.

Besides this, kitty litter is also a powerful melting agent to melt ice off your lawn without damaging it.

3. Dig Away

Another way of not waking up to a cube of unpleasant rock ice is to dig small potholes that are not very deep. Although digging small holes throughout the garden requires a little more effort than the other ice-melting techniques, it is still far less complicated and cost-effective.
