Re: Snow Fence & Aitken in NJ
Snow fences act as a wind break in order to encourage the formation of
snowdrifts, so that they do NOT form around other barriers (such as roads and
things). The slats are set far enough apart to allow the wind to go through
without taking down the fence...but close enough together to slow it down
enough to drop its load of snow. Although they'll get covered over pretty
quickly, the drift itself then slows the wind and accumulates the snow.
Placing snow fence is an art because of the capricious nature of the wind -
and a misplaced fence will cause a big ole drift right where you DON'T want
