There’s some disagreement over the ideal time to put your snow stakes in the ground. This does vary by region where you reside; in some places, the ground might freeze sooner than the first snowfall. Most professionals would recommend October for North America. By this time, most customers are already thinking ahead and are ready to prepare for winter.
If you’re plowing for a high-profile account such as a hospital, school, or senior residence, some contractors will wait until between the first 2 to 6 inches of snow. Just don’t forget to consider stake availability. Most suppliers restock at the beginning of a season. When they run out, they don’t restock until the following year. This is where The Unicomposite leads the pack. Thanks to our plowing expertise, we ensure we have a steady supply of driveway markers even through the off-season.
