CONTROLLING ICE, SLEET, AND SNOW

When the highways and roadways of the metro area are affected by a snow event, Ideal Landscape Group stands ready to deploy all crews, along with all necessary snow & ice management tools. But once freezing precipitation is added to an event, the challenge becomes much more difficult — and dangerous.

Sleet and ice are much more challenging to clear than snow and require three times the amount of chemical treatment to maintain. In fact, a mere 2” of sleet is equivalent to 10-12” of snow. If sleet and freezing rain mix, it’s like a concrete mixture which bonds to the pavement surface and is nearly impossible to remove without more chemical and lots of work.  Ideal Landscape Group uses the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly chemicals that provide the most efficient and quality results.

Equipped to Get the Job Done

Ideal Landscape Group has the equipment and reserve manpower to handle any snow emergency or event. We work with larger clients to maintain on-site equipment and bagged chemical product storage inside lockable, mobile containers. These are kept out of site and allow immediate access to materials and gear during snow and ice events. We also maintain several satellite salt storage locations around the metro area for easy re-loading of our field vehicles.

ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY

Ideal Landscape Group uses two methods to determine when to begin a snow and ice operation:

Professional Forecasting — We contract with a private weather forecasting service for localized weather information during winter months. Management employees receive daily forecasting updates as well as hourly during an event. During the evening and early morning, forecasters contact a designated person on our staff at home with this data. Our snow superintendent utilizes this information to initiate a full plowing operation, if warranted.

Observation — looking out the window! As easy as it sounds, one of our personnel on the street may tell the dispatcher that paved areas are getting slippery, or management may determine the need for a salt run after observing actual conditions. Snow Removal employees are on call 24 hours a day to deal with winter emergencies.
