    Theres a ton of that around here too, we get an insane ammount of snow and people would rather have a loader push the piles way back on the lawns then pay to have it hauled out. Just part of the business. Anyone whos ran a loader at a property where you have no idea where the lawn is knows that its going to happen even when your being as careful as you can.

    I would like to see pics of your worst damage done with a snowblower. Damage yes but minor compared to a plow or loader. Grandview- You are in an area where a snowblower route would be feasable yes? anyone do tractor snowblowers there?

    Not my mess. No one uses snowblowers around here.I cater to all my Canadian friends to discreetly deposit their money.

    Its tough pushing snow back on properties you havent seen before. Add in the ground wasn't frooze yet and it even worse case, it happens.

    Top soil is cheap.Some of the sod can be rolled back.I would rather do lawn repair than replacing destroyed shrubs and blacktop.
