Gravel/Unpaved Laneways: By their very nature snow plowing/snow blowing operations involve pushing a steel blade or snow blower over the surface to be cleared, if the surface is composed of loose material (ie gravel), the loose material will be displaced during snow clearing operations. This is unavoidable. Tifway Lawn, LLC assumes no responsibility for displacing gravel (or any other loose material that the laneway is composed of), and assumes no responsibility for damage caused to lawns, ground cover, shrubbery, landscape lighting, paver bricks, hardscapes, blacktop surfaces, or concrete caused by the displacement of the loose material.
