    Does snow plow close your driveway?

    Here's a little tip when clearing your driveway to keep the snow plow from pushing snow into your newly cleared driveway. See diagram

    Started doing that a few years ago, I actually learned this by mistake, I cleaned a spot for the trash can and noticed the plow didn't plug the driveway any more.

    And if your mailbox is on that side of the driveway and you PROPERLY clear it, then you will kill 2 birds with one stone because you'll get the same result you talk about.

    The plow always beats me to the job as it is very punctual. I don't usually plow til around 9 or 10am. But I have a quad with plow, so I just shove it into the shoulder, as I'm plowing the driveway. As long as I clean it up after my drive is plowed nobody complains. That takes usually only one or two passes to empty shoulder.

    Re: Does snow plow close your driveway?

    I have to do that just to be able see traffic because the snow banks get too high. You must not get the deep snow that we get because just the snow in front of the driveway on the road plugs my driveway. Yes I can see where it helps till we get pounded with a big snow. I also have to use the snowblower to move the road plow snow because it get packed in very hard and it doesn't help with all the salt that the town uses..

    This winter snow was pretty heavy and find it very difficult shoveling the snow on driveways. Anyway thanks for sharing.

    Re: Does snow plow close your driveway?

    Of course they do. I normally snow blow street level for the entire length of my house. However, snow plows depending on depth will make several runs in my community. So clearing out the front of the house doesn't always get the desired result. The attached photo is from our 20" March snow fall. 6 snow plows making 3 runs dumped 5' plus piles of snow at EOD. Fortunately, we have a snow blower that makes EOD clearing easier.
