- Be careful to avoid spreading salt near shrubs or other plants. Sand or sawdust are more environmentally-friendly options for curing those slick walkways, providing friction without the addition of chemicals into the ground.
- If it does snow a lot, try to brush the snow off of any evergreen branches in your yard as the weight of the snow or ice may cause serious damage to your tree.
- Make sure to brush the snow off of evergreen trees as soon as possible after a big snowstorm as the accumulating snow can cause serious damage to the branches. This can be done easily with a broom.
