Too, you'll want to think about planting wind blocks.
I would love to plant wind blocks. Unfortunately the biggest drifting issue is across an access road we share with 2 other homes. The wind block would have to go on a neighbors land. That neighbor will not even chip in for the plowing expense, let alone allow me to plant bushes on his land. Either side of the access road are fields, across which the wind blows, carrying whatever snow is there and dropping it in my way. I do sometimes try to blast thru the drifts with my car, but that's not always successful and prob not so good for the car. We have talked about finding a cheap plow truck, but I picture it becoming a rusty eyesore in my driveway. My plow guy is good & reasonably priced. I just get frustrated w the wind and the drifts. Looking forward to spring.
