Traction Sand and Gravel
Sand & Gravel in Calgary & Edmonton
Sand and gravel is a powerful ally for many business owners in Calgary and Edmonton as we enter the long winter period. Safety is a major issue at that time of year, with slippery conditions making properties hazardous for employees, visitors, guests, and anyone passing by.
Sand and gravel help to make roads, pathways, ramps, stairways, carparks and other areas safer to walk on without fear of slips and accidents.
How can we help keep your commercial property safe?
If ice and snow become a problem for your business, it puts everyone at risk – from employees and customers to city workers. Yardworx can provide the sand and gravel for much-needed traction on your footpaths, parking lots, stairs, and other areas of your business to prevent accidents.
We keep a watch on local weather conditions in Calgary and Edmonton so that we and our customers are prepared for the worst of the winter weather. The Yardworx team employs a variety of tools to help you keep on top of the conditions:
Besides keeping the people at your business safe, it is part of your civic responsibility to remove snow and ice and keep the areas in and around your premises safely accessible. In both Calgary and Edmonton, you must remove snow and ice from public sidewalks bordering your private property as soon as possible (generally within 24 hours of snowfall).
The team at Yardworx observes all bylaws in Calgary and Edmonton and can help you keep your property safe in the winter according to the laws. In the warmer months, we also offer an array of lawn maintenance services and parking lot maintenance to keep your commercial property looking its best.

Who needs sand and gravel supplies?
Persistent melting and refreezing cause dangerous pools of ice to form. Sand and gravel not only adds traction to icy walkways and parking lots; it can help prevent the formation of ice.
If the temperatures aren’t too far below freezing, sand and gravel is an effective preventative measure as well as a remedy for slippery paths. Additionally, after a heavy snowfall, you may need sand and gravel after using our snow plow services.
We recommend that you use it on all affected areas of your property where plows and bobcats have been employed. Parking lots and other areas usually become very icy after we have removed the snow. Note that if you choose not to gravel your parking lot, we will not accept liability for any accidents because of ice formation.
