snow fence : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread

Can anyone help us out? How far from a driveway should a snow fence be placed to help prevent drifting?

Depends on how hard the wind blows, and how much snow usually falls. I've seen it placed as close as a 100 feet, and as far away as 100 yards, like in South Dakota! They have HUGE snow fence out there. My grandfather had it about 150 feet away in western Maryland, where they can get up to 265 inches of snow. Annie in SE OH.

5 feet if you live next door to a moron with a snowblower! One of the 'my life as a building manager' stories. It's true. He hated the landlord so much (he didn't even KNOW me) he would blow all the snow into my driveway/sidewalk. Did the same thing with grass clippings. I solved the problem, by going over one day with a pan of lasagna, all three little ones in tow, asking him to please help me out with the next snowfall, I would gladly gas up the snowblower. He agreed, only thing, he'd rather have lasagna! Whatever works! Thank God I didn't have to resort to plan B!

Did Plan B involve his wearing the lasagna rather than consuming it?

Nice come back Joy, wish I'd thought of it!

What's snow????

"What's snow?" you asked?

It is that stuff that comes down on Lawrence Welk, movie sets, etc. The white fluff that get on caps and the actors hair, and never melts, but stays there whether they are inside a warm building under hot spotlights or not.
