    This year will be my first parking lot, it's for a nursing home. Last year it was 3 miles of roadway in a private development and some driveways. I am wondering how to plan my attack on this complex with basically double wide lanes with parking slips all up and down. Most of it is basically in I and H shapes. Rows of garages on one side and sidewalks on the other side. It's gonna be tough to figure out where to put the snow. Looks like I will have to push it to both ends of each drive. Also has an O shaped turn-around at the front doors to the building. I think this will all need to go 50' out the drive to the street. Should I start at the street, back in 10', and push 10'-15' at a time across the street so I could slowly work my way back to the end (the O turn-around) and still be able to move it? Any advice about how to approach these?
