Road Salt, Your Lawn and Your Driveway

Even though it’s been a light winter, snowfall means road clearing, and when it falls, the plow trucks hit the road and drop salt and sand to help keep our travels safe. Although this helps keep drivers on the road during the winter season, it can cause quite a bit of damage to our driveways and lawns near the roadway.

If your driveway are made of concrete, the salt is a double-edged sword. While it melts the snow, it also can cause water to pool in the pores of the concrete. This means when the temperature drops again, the trapped water can expand, causing cracks and holes in the surface.

Road SaltThis same salt can also wreak havoc on our front lawns. Road salt can kill the grasses along the road, leaving the soil barren. This also provides a greater opportunity for weeds to pop up once springtime comes back around.
