When it comes to winter in Nebraska, de-icing is always a priority to keep our families safe. But what is the best way to deal with the ice we might have all winter? GE Landscape Supply has several options to combat ice and what it leaves behind. It’s important to explore your options to see what’s best for you as you build your winter weather toolkit.
Ice Slicer is a rock salt variety. It lowers the freezing point of water. It melts ice and snow down to zero degrees Fahrenheit while generally, white salt stops melting around 15 to 20 degrees. It also has large granules that increase traction making it a great asset in your winter weather toolkit. Watch our video to see Ice Slicer in action.
While sand does not melt ice, its abrasive texture helps it provide much-needed surface traction at any temperature. So if the temperature is dipping below zero degrees it’s a great option.
This 50/50 blend of Ice Slicer and road gravel or sand serves multiple purposes. The Ice Slicer melts the ice. The sand or gravel prevents new ice from forming while providing traction. This product provides the best of both worlds with its many functions.
After the snow melts away, you might find your rock driveway is full of ruts and puddles. 1” or 1.5” of crushed limestone can fix these problems, making your driveway safe again. GE Landscape supply also offers rock spreading from our trucks at no extra fee. Check out this video to see what a fresh layer of limestone can do for you.
Find yourself ahead of the storm, stop into GE Landscape Supply to make sure you are winter ready.
