With the winter comes the snow. To make the winter wonderland as safe as possible for young and old, the sidewalks around one's property need to be clear of snow. But to break them free from the frozen white splendour does not have to be arduous work.

Snow-free and skid-proof

Whenever it snows heavily, building owners and tenants have one special duty: Lest someone slips, falls and hurts themselves, the sidewalks in most municipalities are to be cleared of snow and ice between seven a.m. and eight p.m. in a width of approximately 80 to 150 centimetres.  In the case of continuous snowfall, the sideways should be cleared several times a day, if required. Yet before the fresh layer of snow can be removed, a suitable place has to be found where it does not disturb or jeopardize anyone. The ideal choices for freeing areas and roads efficiently and noiselessly of snow are the lightweight and sturdy Gardena combisystem Snow Shovels.

Granules or de-icing salt?

Sand, granules or grit then help to make the cleared area skid-proof. But most municipalities prohibit the use of de-icing salt as it poses a substantial strain on the environment. To spread grit on smaller areas, we recommend the new Gardena Hand-Held Spreader M. The compact device lies comfortably in one's hand and its intuitive crank mechanism makes it child's play to use. The best options for bigger areas of up to approximately 800 m² are the new Gardena Spreaders L und XL. Distribution and dosage can be adjusted easily and ergonomically without strenuous stooping thanks to the multi-level handle. All devices may be equipped with gravel of different grain size, and thus are a great help with property care in winter and the application of seeds in summer. With the right companions, the winter duties are completed in next to no time and without any obstacles. And this also leaves much more time for a delightful snowball fight.
