Tired of all the rock salt already?  There are several other solutions that are safer for your yard.  

You might not think coarsely grated sand would be much different, but it is actually 100% organic so it won't affect the health of any grass or plants.  If you don't have any, you can actually use coffee grounds or kitty litter for the same affect!

Installing a snow-melting system underneath hardscaping is not as quick of a solution and certainly costs more, but it is the most effective one.  Heated snow-melting mats have the same affect.  

If the weather is above freezing, pouring a gallon of hot water on your steps after snow removal will work as well.
