Keep your ice melting products away from valuable plants. Many plants are sensitive to any kind of salts and may be burned by these products. Roots and tops can be affected so water heavily in areas near salted roads and driveways in spring to dilute the salty build-up. Use products that do not contain sodium as it is very toxic to plant life. Have a safe spring as it is the freeze thaw of spring that make the icy patches form.
