Pruning of trees and bushes is very important to maintaining proper plant health. Pruning is when we cut off some of the plant so that it will grow better and look better. Removing dead, dying or diseased portions of the shrub or hedge prevents diseases from spreading and insects from settling into deadwood.

Reliable Commercial Snow & Ice Management Services
As we all know, St. Louis winters are unpredictable. But whether your property is large or small, you can rest assured knowing Cardinal Lawn & Landscape can take care of you, your residents, employees and customers, and that your property will remain open during even the worst snow or ice storm. Our clients turn to us because of our proactive and highly organized approach to snow and ice management.
CONTROLLING ICE, SLEET, AND SNOW
When the highways and roadways of the metro area are affected by a snow event, Cardinal Lawn & Landscape stands ready to deploy all crews, along with all necessary snow & ice management tools. But once freezing precipitation is added to an event, the challenge becomes much more difficult — and dangerous.
Sleet and ice are much more challenging to clear than snow and require three times the amount of chemical treatment to maintain. In fact, a mere 2” of sleet is equivalent to 10-12” of snow. If sleet and freezing rain mix, it’s like a concrete mixture which bonds to the pavement surface and is nearly impossible to remove without more chemical and lots of work. Cardinal Lawn & Landscape uses the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly chemicals that provide the most efficient and quality results.
Equipped to Get the Job Done
Cardinal Lawn & Landscape has the equipment and reserve manpower to handle any snow emergency or event.
Cardinal Lawn & Landscape uses two methods to determine when to begin a snow and ice operation:
Professional Forecasting — We contract with a private weather forecasting service for localized weather information during winter months. Management employees receive daily forecasting updates as well as hourly during an event. Our snow superintendent utilizes this information to initiate a full plowing operation, if warranted.
Observation — looking out the window! As easy as it sounds, one of our personnel on the street may tell the dispatcher that paved areas are getting slippery, or management may determine the need for a salt run after observing actual conditions. Snow Removal employees are on call 24 hours a day to deal with winter emergencies.
Snow and ice can cause big challenges for your business.
You can rely on us for full-service winter care, even during the roughest months. Our process includes:
Retaining our snow and ice management team means peace of mind, knowing that your business and your customers will be cared for and will have access to the services they need no matter the weather.
