COMMERCIAL SNOW & ICE MANAGEMENT
Proper management of snow and ice conditions requires planning for any contingency. United Lawnscape takes a proactive approach to prepare for winter weather events.
Over ten years ago, United Lawnscape implemented its snowfall monitoring system so that 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, we are aware of weather conditions throughout Michigan. Our winter clients can rest assured that their properties will be safe and accessible no matter what time of day a storm hits.
Our winter services include snow plowing, sidewalk shoveling, deicing applications to roads and walkways, and snow relocation services. These services are delivered by our snow management teams consisting of snow plowing trucks, salt spreading trucks, and hand crews who are responsible for clearing the walks and applying ice melt. You’ll find our full-time mechanics supporting these teams 24 hours a day by maintaining our equipment and keeping it fully functional.
By providing the proper personnel, state-of-the-art equipment and tested systems, we are willing and able to maintain each location in a manner that meets and exceeds the expectations of our clients.

COMMITTED TO OUR ENVIRONMENT
Thinking “green” isn’t just a trend in modern design, it will be the standard by which we all live. Whether you’re a commercial developer, business owner, property management specialist or a homeowner, you will be challenged at some point to consider sustainable design.
Sustainable landscape practices are at the forefront in all of our landscape designs. We believe utilizing native plantings in commercial installations provides opportunities for habitat creation, water-use reduction, and the attraction of a variety of birds, butterflies, and other animals.
Sustainable design considers numerous strategies including plant selection and placement around buildings, sourcing local materials, implementing pervious paving options, and xeriscaping. Utilizing drought-tolerant plants will lower the cost of water and irrigation costs. Effective tree placement protects buildings from high winds, cool temperatures, and increased heating costs. Green roof design and installation, wetland mitigation, bioswales and rain gardens, meadow lawns, and low-mow, low-grow lawns are all elements of our landscape sustainability.
