 CHARLOTTE, NC — For anyone putting down rock salt on the driveway, there is a “nicer de-icer” on the market that’s actually good for your lawn when it thaws.

“Urea is a product… in essence it’s the nitrogen in fertilizer.  The advantage of this is it doesn’t hurt your concrete near as easily,” said Gray Little of Little Hardware.  “And plus, all your wash off is nitrogen, so you’ll end up with a nice green grass in the Spring.”

The people at Little Hardware also tell us most people use too much rock salt.
