Winter Preparation

With temperatures dropping and morning frost coming more often, it’s time for some winter preparation. Patuxent Nursery is stocked with Ice Melt, Shovels and Bulk Salt to help you get through this winter safely.

We also have windshield washer fluid and lock de-icer!

Ice Melt

Ice melt is the perfect way to preemptively prepare for winter. If you have ice melt on hand, you’ll be ready for that first big storm before it even happens. Apply a layer of ice melt to your sidewalks and driveways before the storm and you’ll greatly cut down on the amount of ice that forms around your home. With temperatures dropping and winter quickly approaching, it’s time for winter preparation.

Calcium Chloride – Best for pavers and concrete.
Eco-Mag Magnesium Chloride – Safer for pets and lawns.
Ice Patrol Rock Salt- Best for asphalt. Not for use on pavers.


Forget the ice melt? No problem! We also have plenty of shovels in stock that work wonders for clearing your driveways and sidewalks. We recommend using both ice melt and a sturdy shovel to secure your walkways.

When you have a large area to cover, be a pro and go to Patuxent Nursery for bulk salt. Stay safe this winter season!


Seasoned Firewood

Temperatures are dropping and it’s time for firewood at Patuxent Nursery. Lighting a fire is a great, cost-effective way to heat your home. Nothing beats the feeling of relaxing by the fire with your family, so be sure to stock up! Don’t have a truck? No problem, we can deliver!

Fire Pits

In addition to wood, we also have a selection of fire pits! Fire pits make the perfect outdoor accessory this time of year. Throw a few logs in the pit, light one of our starter logs, and enjoy the warmth! 



Starter Stikk

Don’t forget your Starter Stikks and long reach matches. These two items are a must have that make lighting a fire easy. Avoid the headache of starting a fire and just add a starter stikk to your fire pit.
