Lawn Aeration Service

Over time, your lawn will become stressed by thickening layers of thatch, heat, and compaction from foot traffic and various other factors. Cardinal Tree Service & Landscaping LLC aeration service will mechanically remove small plugs of soil and thatch from your entire lawn. Lawn aeration helps your lawn breathe and creates ideal conditions to increase nutrient flow for healthier, stronger, and greener, thicker grass growth.

Also know as aerating, coring, and aerifying, lawn aeration can drastically increase the effectiveness of normal irrigation, pest control, and fertilization, and over all enhance the look of your lawn and extend it's lifespan.

Benefits of Having your Lawn Aerated

  • Lawn aeration improves fertilizer absorption. This is because the aerations opens up the soil, allowing more food to reach it's roots.
  • Lawn aeration leads to more efficient water usage by letting the water travel directly to the roots.

Lawn Overseeding Service

If your lawn looks old, or just "worn out", or is disease or insect prone, it's a perfect candidate for overseeding. Overseeding is the planting of grass seed directly into existing turf, without tearing up the turf, or the soil. It's an easy way to fill in bare spots, improve the density of turf, establish improved grass varieties and enhance your lawn's color.

Overseeding newer turfgrass varieties into an older lawn can help it better withstand insects, disease, drought, shady conditions and heavy traffic. The investment in overseeding pays off by reducing the amount of fertilizer, water and pesticides required. Most importantly, a renovated lawn stays greener and looks thicker and healthier!
