SNOW PRO TIP – Store Your Opened Plastic Bag of Deicing Salt in One of These!

When applying bagged ice melt materials to sidewalks, driveways, parking areas, etc., it is very likely that at some point along the way, once a store bought plastic bag of salt is opened, you will have unused material leftover.  Since bagged ice melt material is expensive, it is very prudent to do what you can to save the unused ice melt material in a manner so it can be used at a later date.  Simply rolling closed the open plastic bag is a crapshoot at best.  If the contents are allowed to become wet or even draw moisture from the air (hygroscopic materials – calcium chloride in particular), it will harden, clump and become nearly impossible to apply in an effective manner.

Store your open ice melt material in a plastic 5 or 6 gallon bucket WITH A RESEALABLE AIR-TIGHT LID!

Beyond storing unused ice melt material at the end of a winter weather event, keep a few additional covered buckets pre-loaded and ready to go before the storm arrives.  A bucket of salt is so much easier to handle than a clumsy, wet or sometimes snow covered plastic bag.

Please be sure to contact Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc. with any snow and ice related service you may require.  We appreciate the opportunity and look forward to being of assistance to you.  Thank you for visiting our site and have a great day!

Priority Residential Snow Removal by Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc.

We take our residential snow removal service very seriously!

We are asked many times over the course of a given month if we do residential snow removal.  Our answer is, but of course we do!  Not only do we perform residential snow removal, but we treat it with the same importance and level of care as we would any commercial site we are servicing.

Here are a few details in regard to our priority residential snow removal service you may want to consider.

  • Our residential snow removal service begins at 1″ of accumulation.
  • Our residential, commercial and industrial snow removal service routes are each capped at 6 hours in length (based on 4″+/- of snow accumulation).  This limited route approach helps us return to your property to clear additional accumulated snow in a timely manner, even during the worst winter storm.
  • We clear snow from sidewalks, stairs and patios!  Whether by shovel, broom or snow blower, we are willing and able to clear your non-plow vehicle accessible areas manually if needed.
  • We stock a wide range of granular ice melt materials to aid in the removal of ice, compacted/frozen snow, etc.
  • Our existing seasonal lawn and landscape management clients have first choice when new snow route availability becomes available.
  • We offer per-occurrence and limited package pricing plans for our seasonally contracted residential snow removal services.
  • Winter service agreements extend from November 1st through April 1st. (unless specified/requested otherwise).
  • We offer the seasonal installation of fiberglass snow plow stakes (48″ long) to help prevent accidental plow contact with snow covered obstacles (retaining walls, landscape lighting, delicate plant materials, etc.)
  • We take great pride in our 25 plus years experience in the snow removal industry and are very fortunate to have served many great clients along the way, many of which we still proudly service today.

Please be sure to contact Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc. with any snow removal question you may have.  We would love to hear from you and look forward to being of service any way we can.  Thank you for visiting our site and have a great day!

Ready for Accumulating Snow on November 1st!

It seems that accumulating snow is happening earlier and earlier in the fall season here in the northern Illinois Chicago area.  Over the last 20 years, we were considered “lucky” (from a plow contractor’s perspective 🙂 ) to get accumulating snow as early as mid-to-late December, but the last few winters have proven otherwise.

From our company’s point of view, accumulating snow in November is now to be expected.  Even though snow and ice service planning, operational improvement and efficient route creation never stops and truly happens year round, being fully operational and ready to successfully service our clients properties on November 1st.  is now the rule, not the exception.

Please contact our company, Pacocha Landscaping Services, Inc., for more information on our snow and ice management service offering and to receive a professional and fully detailed seasonal winter service agreement custom created specifically for your property.

Thank you for visiting our site and have a great winter season!
