As we hang the snow shovels up, stack the salt bags, and wipe the sweat from our collective brows, Mack Landscape Management, LLC. is gearing up for Spring!
Our snow removal team at Mack Landscape Management, LLC. has survived the 3rd snowiest season in Philadelphia history, cleared your walkways and drives while the weather gods broke the 130 year snow record, and took part in the 3rd largest salt distribution year in Pennsylvania history. All to keep you safe and comfortable at your home or office! And as we uncross our fingers and the endless barrage of storms pass we are gearing up for spring!
SPRING CLEANUPS & STORM RESIDUALS:
Now is the time that we must look forward to spring which consequently is one of our busiest times of the year!
Spring is the best time to have Mack Landscape Management, LLC. install that new bed you were talking about, plant those fall color bulbs, or any deciduous trees around your property. Spring is also the time to think about any drainage issues you have or are anticipating before the rains pick up. The torrential downpours we have here bring not only flowers but flooded basements as well!
Also, for the garden lover and landscape enthusiast, spring is the best time to start planning any outdoor lighting, or hardscaping ideas before the mulch and grading issues get resolved. We eagerly look forward to your call here at Mack Landscape Management, LLC.!

MORE ON THE STORMS:
The damage from the winter snowfall, ice storms, and flooding is widespread and dramatic all throughout the greater Philadelphia area. The weather has put great pressure on electrical contractors and linemen, gas companies, and as we know, landscape maintenance crews who are at the whims of the escalating salt prices, and storm timing.
Mack Landscape Management, LLC. has spread forty tons of salt alone and have logged over 600 man hours over the last few weeks to keep your homes accessible. Storm damage has been reported and was present at 100% of our properties and much more remains to be done once the lingering snow dissipates. If you or a neighbor still haven’t informed us of storm cleanup or tree removals needed please call us!
Salt shortages and price gouging has been an increasing difficulty for us as well as your local municipalities this year. This being one of the worst storm sequences in history has led our state to issue a state of emergency. This allows the Federal and State governments to commandeer salt orders and trucks at their leisure. Ultimately, the shortage and demands for highways, as well as the federal statutes for price gouging were overlooked this year when the price for salt soared from $50 per ton to $150. The few links below give light to the growing issues and nuisances we all have had to deal with.
