GroundWorks Natural™ Ice Melter is a premium product designed to tackle the worst winter weather conditions - but with the same potassium-based ingredient as common organic lawn fertilizers. GroundWorks is designed specifically to melt ice and snow effectively, while being eco-friendly, pet safe, and easy to use. With a unique potassium formulation, this product won't burn pets' paws or your lawn, such as happens with common rock salts, ureas or other type of harsher ice melts.
GroundWorks works better than traditional icemelters without any of the risks!
