Protecting a Lawn from Road Salt Damage

My request is more of a landscaping question. I live on a busy road. Every winter my front lawn gets a beating by the plowers and sand/salt mixture. We just spent about $1500 to have our green lawn back. This year we got a lot of snow. Any suggestions?

You might want to design an area between the road and the main part of the lawn that can take the abuse from the salt etc. Try contacting a local nursery or (like Lowe's) to see what can tolerate the abuse. That way you're not paying extra every year to undo the damage. Have you thought of maybe a stone garden swatch out there as a breaker? Good luck. Linda
