When you sprinkle that seemingly innocuous ice melt on your pavement, you might not realize that it’s laying siege to your plants, garden, and landscaping. Many common deicers contain salt or chemicals which can wreak havoc on plant life.

  • Salt Intrusion: Plants, like us, need a certain salt balance. Too much salt sucks the vital moisture out of them, leading to dehydration. Prolonged exposure? Think dead plants.
  • Chemical Attack: Some ice melts have chemicals which, when absorbed by plants, can interrupt vital processes. Photosynthesis can get hampered, leading to unhealthy or dead plants.
  • Landscape Lament: Beyond plants, your entire landscape might suffer. Accumulation of these harmful substances can change the soil structure and pH. For gardening enthusiasts, this spells doom for future plant growth.
  • Home Garden Havoc: Love growing your own veggies? You might be inadvertently introducing chemicals into them by using toxic ice melts. Imagine eating those chemicals for dinner! So, what’s your answer? Is your ice melt safe for plants?
