Snow Blowing & Plowing

Snow Blowing/Plowing Guide - Tips (click here)

 

Overview:

We have been in the snow business and plowing since 2007. In 2011 we started snow blowing driveways with a Bobcat skid steer rather than a truck and plow. The results were great and we soon realized there were many advantages to snow blowing over plowing. Most of Canada relies on snow blowing over plowing, and recently many manufactures have developed new and innovative snow blowers designed for contractors like us who specialize in residential snow blowing services.

For the 2018-2019 winter we added 3 additional tractors and snow blowers into our fleet, 4 more in 2019-2020, lastly another 3 for 2020-2021, bringing out total to 12 tractors and 3 trucks. The majority of our snow business is now blowing. 

Advantages of snow blowing include:

  • Safety- No huge piles of snow to create blind spots when backing out of driveways

  • Minimal lawn damage- tractors never have to drive off the driveway so there is little to no lawn damage and repair needed come spring.

  • Appearance- Snow blowing leaves clean cut edges to the driveway making driveways look nicer than if they were plowed with a traditional snow plow and truck.

When does sceLawnCare come to clear the driveway?

We monitor weather conditions 24 hours a day 7 days a week. When snow is forecasted our alarms start going off for the day at 12:00 AM to check conditions and stay on top of the snow. Our crews start clearing the snow as soon as 3" of snow has fallen. We try to keep our routes to a maximum of 4 hours and have all properties cleared by 6:30 am. Although this is our goal and we work hard to always meet it, sometimes mother nature dishes out a blizzard starting at 5:00 or 6:00 am. To be 100% transparent, if this happens we will start plowing once we have 3" of snow and our routes will have a delayed start time.

 

Will sceLawnCare come twice in one day?

If conditions permit, ABSOLUTELY. In fact, we will service properties up to 3 times in a 24 hour period.
