Christy Webber Landscapes was contracted by the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) to clear snow from 122 above-ground L platforms in the city. Whenever snow removal service is requested by the CTA, we mobilize enough labor to man every station with at least one employee in a two-hour time frame. We shovel snow from all station entrances, stairways, walkways, and platforms for the duration of each snowfall. This contract represented the first time in the history of the CTA that a private contractor cleared L station platforms of snow. Exceptional performance through the first two years of the contract led to a three-year renewal of the contract.
We've had a warm and wet summer, and it doesn't appear to be slowing down. With the recent heavy rains, it's important to be mindful and not over-water your plants. It's best to let the roots dry out after a long rain storm before soaking them with more water.
