In the winter, the roads get slippery and become dangerous, both for cars to drive on and for pedestrians. As such, local councils grit many major thoroughfares using rock salt, to ensure the safety of residents and individuals travelling through your land.

While local councils do a fantastic job, they have their limits, which is why Hill View Farm also offers a private gritting service.

We aim to offer our clients the chance to keep the roads that they use regularly safe. If you want to find out more about why you should consider using a private gritting company this winter, then read on, and we’ll explain.

Councils Don’t Grit Every Road

While local councils grit most roads, they’re not able to grit every one in the country. There are many reasons why local councils don’t grit all of the roads in the UK, which means that some smaller lanes and roads don’t get gritted.

Also, the council isn’t responsible if you use a private road or land, so you will need to pay for the gritting of these areas yourself.

Gritting any road is an essential part of winter maintenance; without it, snow and ice will build up and could damage your car.

If you use a small lane to access your land or to travel on regularly, then you should consider checking out private gritting companies to find the one that can help you.

Our team offers winter gritting services to a wide range of private clients. We can tailor our gritting service to your needs, so no matter how big or small the job, we can complete it to the highest possible standard.

Regular Gritting Can Save You Time And Effort Maintaining Your Land

Cold weather doesn’t just bring ice; it can also bring snow. If snow falls on a road that isn’t regularly gritted with salt, then it will settle.

If the road is gritted in the winter, then there is less chance that the snow will settle. Snow causes an obstacle for cars, so you’ll need to hire a snow clearance expert or get rid of the snow yourself.

However, if you work with private gritting services providers, like us, then the snow will melt when it touches the salt. Our gritting service will save you time and hassle when you’re trying to use a road for access.

Also, if your land has a car park, then we can save you time maintaining it. Our winter gritting service will ensure that the land is always ready for use and help to melt any ice that acclimates. The salt we use to grit your land will also reduce the chances of snow settling and causing problems.

Our salt is safe for your land, so it will not damage the surface of your road or harm any wildlife in the area, so you can rest assured that you only get the best when you work with us.

Private Gritting Services Are Convenient

As well as saving your time maintaining your land, private gritting services can also reduce the amount of work that you have to do gritting your own land or a road that you use often.

When you use our gritting services, you get more than just salt spread across your land. You get the benefit of our experienced team. They know all about snow clearance and land maintenance, so they can advise you on how often to grit, the areas that need the most attention, and more.

Once you’ve decided what services you need, we can get to work. Our staff will grit the area for you so that there is less chance of ice forming and causing havoc.

Our gritting service can transform your land from a desolate wasteland into a space that you can safely use for pasture, driving, and more.

Access Is Essential In Winter

As a team of experienced farmers, everyone at Hill View Farm knows that in winter, there’s a lot more work. You need to make sure that your animals and crops are safe, and that they have everything that they need.

If you can’t access your land, then you’ll struggle to complete vital tasks. That’s why winter gritting is a crucial solution for any landowner or farmer.

Additionally, if there’s an emergency, then you will need to access your land quickly. As well as regular gritting, we also offer emergency gritting for when you urgently need access but can’t drive on the road.
