Here at PMs we have become abundantly aware of the Frost damage that has occurred.
The areas where the snow cover was significant and in place for the whole winter the frost did not penetrate. Snow acts as a blanket insulating the ground. Where the snow was cleared has caused the frost to go very deep. The difference between the 2 areas can now be showing a 3 inch difference in height. The fence post on one end raised about 3 inches.
The hot tub area was cleared of snow all winter so the ground around the tub had the frost driven in and heaved the ground about 3 inches.
At this point in the spring there really isn’t anything you can do to change things. But next winter leave snow where you can to insulate and help prevent the frost heaves for the next spring.
If you need help dealing with the frost damage give us a call – PMs – 705.330.2924
