LDC offer winter gritting, ice salting and snow clearing service in the Surrey area ( located Guildford ).

We offer a planned preventative service to grit and salt when sub-zero temperatures are forecast. We offer reactive services for clearing snow and ice from car parks, driveways and footpaths.
Clear snow damaged vegetation and tree branches.

As a professional landscaping company we are mindful of the living landscape and the risk to planting schemes and infrastructure, we can ensure salt is accurately placed to minimise damage.

Forward planning is essential. Contact us now to be prepared for the future.

What we will do once you contact us;

  • Discuss with you what you require from us.
  • Visit your site for a survey to view the areas you want treating and where snow can be cleared to.
  • Propose how best to treat your site, proactively &/or reactively.
  • Provide a quote for the work to be done.

Once services are agreed;

We will monitor the Met Weather forecast to enable us to make decisions on salting requirements. This may help to reduce the need for heavy snow clearance, however if heavy snowfall needs clearing we can use snow shovels and machines as required.

LDC holds full insurance.
