Managing the snow and ice on your driveways, sidewalks, patios, and parking lots is a matter of both convenience and safety. Deep snow in front of your business discourages visitors, while icy surfaces pose a danger to your family as they step out the front door. Snow removal & plowing is your responsibility for your residential or commercial property—but that doesn’t mean you have to do it yourself.

At Better View Landscapes, we’re available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for commercial and residential snow removal & plowing throughout the winter. We have the crew and the equipment for all your snow plowing, snow blowing, de-icing, salting, and roof snow removal needs, and we keep an eye on the weather forecasts so we’re ready for action when the storms hit. With our years of experience in the Pioneer Valley, we work safely and efficiently to keep your property in Amherst, Massachusetts clear and usable.

Snow removal & plowing is one of many services we offer. As a full-service landscaping company, Better View offers creative landscape design, innovative landscaping solutions, high-quality installations, and customized maintenance programs to help you better enjoy your outdoor space. Contact us to learn more about snow removal and other landscaping services in Amherst and nearby communities.

We offer this amazing full-care service at a low, fixed price!

Prices start at $795 for the whole season if booked before October 15th.

The average snowfall around here is more than 40 inches a year. Instead of braving the bitter cold to shovel a driveway that you swear grew longer since the summertime, why not go Unlimited?

There’s nothing like the peace of mind of knowing you’ll always get snow service for snowfalls over 2” without having to call a snowplow company each time. Better View Landscapes can respond at the drop of a hat to care for your property during the rough weather of winter.

The fantastic benefits you get with our Unlimited Snow Plow/Blower service:

  • UNLIMITED visits per season*
  • Storm email text and voicemail from us to let you know what the plan is before each storm
  • 24/7 operation—even holidays!*
  • Free driveway staking—and removal in spring—of the area to be cleared by our staff (required)
  • Dedicated Snowline phone monitored during storms
  • Pre-storm email so you’re always prepared
  • New! Text message storm notifications are now available
  • Polite, friendly staff eager and willing to keep you and your property safe
  • Plowing services begin at 2”+ of accumulation

We stay glued to the storm reports and send out pre-storm emails so there’s snow emergency (get it?), and our new text message service keeps you informed when you’re on the go. With our Unlimited Snow Plow/Blower Service, we’re combining our passion for customer care and safety with year-round landscape maintenance.

Why Work With Us

Snow doesn’t take a holiday, and neither do we: we’re here 24 hours a day, seven days a week for snow removal in Amherst. Keeping your sidewalks, parking lots, driveways, decks, and patios safe is our priority in the winter, and our highly-trained team uses top-of-the-line equipment to do the job quickly and efficiently. Here’s how we set ourselves apart as a full-service landscaping company:

  • Safety: At Better View Landscapes, we say we are in the snow SAFETY business.  Our main objective is to keep you, your friends, family, guests and complete strangers going where they/you need to go while on your property, and to do so safely. 
  • Communication: We send out an email before every storm letting you know what kind of weather we are projected to have, our plan for the event, and other helpful info.  For larger storms, we may send out additional communication to ensure you know what is going on. We also have a dedicated snow line for our customers to use during snow events. 
  • Readiness: Like any good athlete, we train! Prior to the season starting, our staff visits all of our sites to get familiar with the layout, and mentally plow the snow so they are ready when the white stuff flies.  Our equipment is well maintained and serviced before the season starts and continually maintained during the entire season.  
  • Responsiveness: When the snow, ice, sleet, freezing rain or even a blizzard does come, our staff is ready to get out and take care of your property.  With all the storm prep we do and careful watching of forecasts, we are ready at the drop of the hat to take care of your property. Our snow operations operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including holidays (yes, we have plowed on Christmas).  If a problem does arise, our dedicated office staff can handle your problem quickly and work to get a solution fast.

Don’t pick up the shovel this winter. There is limited availability, if you wait until the first snowfall, we may not be able to fit you into our schedule. Save yourself time and hassle by calling us today to learn more about our snow removal services for both residential and commercial properties in Amherst and nearby communities.

At Better View Landscapes, we strive for clarity and transparency. All of our contracts are clearly outlined, with no hidden fees. We tailor your service plan to meet the particular needs of your property, so you can rest assured that your landscaping will look its best year-round. Getting started is simple:

    Contact our office using this online form or call the office directly. We will ask for details about your property, the kind of services you require, and your budget requirements. If you fill out our form, you can expect a call from our representatives within one business day.

  • On-Site or Virtual Meeting

    Once we have determined that your project is a good fit, we will set up an on-site visit or virtual meeting, depending on your project. For design projects and more complex landscaping contracts, we will visit your property to gather information. If you require basic maintenance services, we will conduct an easy virtual meeting via Zoom to clarify the details before preparing your proposal.

  • Estimate

    For our maintenance services, we will prepare a proposal within 3 business days of our first meeting and send it to you for review and approval. Most initial design proposals will be ready within one business day of our initial meeting. Following this design concept meeting, we will prepare your agreement and pricing as discussed and send it to you for approval.

  • Your Custom Plan

    Once we have completed contract discussions, you can review and sign your design plan or care plan. We will request your installation deposit before scheduling work, and your design fee must be paid prior to beginning design work. Most initial design renderings will be ready within ten business days after your design proposal has been accepted, with a follow-up meeting(s) upon completion of the initial design plan. For landscape maintenance plans, we will provide you with an invoice in the week following each service visit, and payment will be charged against the card you have on file.

  • Agreement & Work Begins

    Once you have signed your service agreement, maintenance and installation services will be added to the schedule. You will receive regular communication from our team to ensure that any questions and concerns are addressed quickly. Our team will be available for any questions you may have after each maintenance service visit, and a comprehensive walk-through will be conducted with you upon completion of your installation project.

  • Follow-up Care

    For maintenance contracts, you can expect monthly follow-ups to ensure your satisfaction. For installation services, we will reach out to you after the work is complete to provide follow-up care recommendations and service.
