Would you forget Winter?

Winter is a wonderful time of year in the mid-west. When we wake up to sub-zero temperatures and look out our windows at all the fresh white powder, we can conclude, it is a great place to live. If you are a Snow Leopard, that is.

What is all that snow good for anyway? 

  • Snow is an insulating blanket for our plants, protecting roots.
  • Deep snow helps the soil retain moisture over winter.
  • Snow, like rain, is full of nitrogen. All vegetation will love this when spring finally comes.
  • Lake levels and water supplies will be generously replenished this spring.

But we must also be cautious of snow, even though it does provide these positives, it can wreck your home and surroundings. Heavy snow can crush small trees and shrubs, breaking off tender shoots and branches. It can also wreak havoc on the roof of your home or business. The weight of heavy snow can damage your roof, leading to leaks or even collapsing. 

If you would happen to experience the negative side of snow this year and need the help of Professionals that have seen it all...
