How To Battle Salt Damage In The Spring

During winters, in countries like Canada, salt sprays are used widely to melt the ice that accumulates on pathways, gardens and lawns. De-icing salt is then used to melt that ice. However, as too many Winnipeg residents know,  the use of salt can be harmful for plants, grass and soil. This harm caused by salt is known as salt damage, and it could be reversed or at least contained in many ways. A few simple precautions can counteract the effect of salt damage.

Causes of Salt Damage

How to Battle Salt Damage in the Spring

Due to scattering of de-icing salt or salt spray on the layer of ice, ice starts melting gradually. With the melted ice, salt also washes away into plants and soil, and the level of toxic mixture builds up quickly. This leaves moisture in the soil, but due to toxicity and salt presence, plants cannot absorb this moisture. An effect of drought occurs causes scorched edges of leaf, stunted growth of plants, and other growth issues.

The coating of salt draws moisture out of plants and leafs, which inhibits the cycle of photosynthesis, and new buds can’t sprout in spring. Salt can even take a beating on hard surfaces like concrete or stone surfaces because of its corrosive nature. This is the reason salt can cause so much damage to landscapes, gardens and lawns.

Besides all these damages, even when the salt mixture freezes again, the ice expands and it could then be cracked easily, and cause furthermore damages to vehicles or pedestrians.

The lawn is one the most peaceful and satisfying portion of a house (at least in our opinion). It’s where one can enjoy the colors of nature without having to venture too far. In order to keep your lawn clean, looking good, and safe from turfgrass disease, one has to maintain it properly and take care of the grass and plants in a proper manner. And it’s not as difficult of a task as you may think to keep the lawns fresh and healthy. You can do it easily by having the right tools and equipment.

These following components of lawn care will help prevent turfgrass disease:

  • Proper irrigation
  • Annual aeration of soil
  • Proper lawn mowing
  • Balanced fertilizers

Some of these things can be done at home. Others need lawn care professionals to look after the tiny details of lawn. The Cleanr Mow team has been rated as one of the best property management companies in Winnipeg.
