Sand and Gravel Calgary

We understand Alberta winters because we live here too! So we know that not every snowfall should be managed with the same tools and materials. Our teams will assess each site and snowfall to determine the best action plan, and pay special attention to key areas like ramps and slopes where melting and re-freezing can cause pools of ice to form.

Armyworx uses a variety of tools to increase traction and reduce risk:

  • Gravel: 5-7 ml gravel may be used to provide traction. If needed, we may combine a small amount of Ice Melt into the mixture, which helps the material stick to ice and immediately reduces risk.
  • Sand: Sand is a great option to protect special surfaces like decorative or historic concrete, bricks and stone. Sometimes, Ice Melt is added to this mixture for maximum hold.
  • Ice Melt: Our crews know when Ice Melt is necessary (up to -30 degrees, when there is moisture in the air) and know how to apply it efficiently to reduce environmental impact. It is used only when required for reducing risk quickly, and never to replace the hard work of snow and ice removal.

"Absolutely satisfied with the work done by the Armyworx crew. They were so efficient the only way I knew that they did my yard maintenance was by the aeration on my lawn. I have booked them again in the spring and will most assuredly recommend them to anyone looking for a fabulous yard maintenance crew, Thumbs up 5 stars."

5.0 5.0

"I am very pleased with the quality of work by the team who does my yard. The yard always looks good and they have never forgotten to make sure that the gate is latched so the dog cannot escape. They are in and out very quickly, and show up on the days I expect them. Excellent service and will be renewing for a third year. I have recommended them to others as well."
