Spring Is Busy Planting Time For Our Team

Pugh’s Earthworks provides commercial landscape and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville. We have a total of five commercial landscape service operations in three states. We operate in Tennessee, Mississippi and Little Rock, Arkansas. Our monthly services include landscape design, installation and maintenance. We also offer an affordable monthly lawn maintenance program as well. We customize our program and services based on the needs, budget, and seasonal requirements of each shopping center and retail facility that we work with.

Now that winter has ended, it’s time to think about planting shrubs and reworking flower beds. Spring is the perfect time to do both. Our landscape team is already busy adding new beautiful seasonal flowers to the flower beds of many of the shopping centers that we service. Our flower replacement service is affordable and offers a great way to add some much needed color and life to the retail facility. We offer a wide variety of flowers and bedding plants. We work with each client to determine the precise varieties and quantities that we install for each flower bed.

Many of the shrubs in the Memphis area suffered varying degrees of damage this past Winter. Our commercial landscape team is also very busy evaluating the shrubs and plants currently installed at the retail facilities we support. Where damage has occurred, those shrubs and plants will be replaced. Any shrubs deemed past it’s prime will also be called to the attention of the client. If approved, those shrubs are replaced as well. Before we change out shrubs, we always provide our client with recommendations for the varieties of plants that would work best in the areas being serviced. Landscape design is one of the areas that we truly excel. Our customers have come to depend on our experts to suggest the perfect shrubs, and the precise quantity of those shrubs that will provide for the best display.

When our team starts putting together the landscape plan for you, there are a number of things they consider. First they evaluate the area available to install plants. Every retail location is different. Our team will create an installation plan that ensures the best display. We also take into consideration the types of shrubs that the customer prefers. Our experts do a great job of recommending flowering and non-flowering shrubs that best fit the Memphis, Nashville, Jackson, Little Rock or Southaven growing zones. As your landscape partner, we always like to recommend shrubs that work well for your specific environment, including considering how much shade or sun the bedding area may provide.

Planting shrubs involves a specific process to make sure they can adapt and thrive where they are planted. We start by evaluating the soil. Once that evaluation has been completed, we bring is the necessary soil enhancements needed to ensure the plants receive the proper nutrients. You would think that digging the hole is the easy part. Actually the hole dimensions are incredibly important. Dig the hole too deep and too much of the stem may be covered by soil. Dig the hole to shallow and root growth may be negatively impacted. Soil and hole dimensions are an exacting science. Our installers work to create optimal soil and a hole the is approximately three or four times as wide as the container the shrub came in.
