How do you put lawn greetings into frozen ground?

Well, it's that time of year again (for many of us!)..... cold temperatures. Soon-to-be frozen temps! On our list of most often asked questions is:

How do you put signs in frozen ground?

Thankfully it's not as bad as it may seem and YES, you CAN install in freezing weather with the help of a few simple tools. There are two tools called a Post Driver and a Post Puller that make this task very manageable. They are special tools made specifically for the purpose of installing/removing posts (not just in frozen ground, but all types of ground). With the Post Puller you can pop your post out of the ground like a cork coming out of a wine bottle (no more trying to wrestle a 7 foot lawn stork out of the dirt!). Worse case scenario you can always bring a thermos of hot water or a drill to soften the ground if needed (but this is not common).
