With our extensive experience, we have many tips for maintaining HOA/COA landscapes throughout alll seasons, including winter, which, in Tennessee, can mean snow and ice. Winter Planting and Maintenance Let's start with any plans for planting during the winter. You don't have to do much when it comes to winter landscaping around your HOA. Just having a few evergreens and shrubs with berries can add interest and color. Also, trees with colorful and textured bark may provide a unique look. It's also good to continually remove any fallen leaves, branches, or other debris. Doing so will provide an attractive look for your community. Plus, it will also reduce rodents and other critters that you may not want to have lurking around your community. Snow and Ice Removal You want to make sure that common area paths and sidewalks remain clear for residents as well as have a plan for salting roads to minimize the risk of ice and black ice. Hardscapes and Amenities Maintenance Part of caring for the HOA/COA landscape involves keeping benches, arbors, playground equipment, and other amenities free of snow and ice as well as maintain them up to a usable standard. A fresh coat of paint or stain can add brightness on a dreary winter day. Walkway lighting also can cheer up areas and help residents by lighting the way for them.

Keep Leaves Off Lawns, Sidewalks, and Parking Areas

Pugh's Earthworks Tennessee's Commercial and Residential Landscape Company Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville plus we service residential and commercial lawns in Little Rock, Arkansas. Our monthly seasonal landscape care for lawns includes professional lawn care, including irrigation and sprinklers, fertilizing, reseeding, aeration, and pest control. Along with our professional landscape design and maintenance services, we also provide a wealth of expert advice on how to care for your residential and commercial landscapes. One of the things we often tell our clients is why it's so important to keep leaves off of lawns, flower beds, and sidewalks as well as clear this debris from parking areas. Leaves can accumulate quickly as they trees shed them for the fall and winter seasons. The effect is a pile of leaves. While they are unsightly, they also can cause problems. On lawns, the leaves can clog the grass so that the lawn can no longer breathe and get the oxygen it needs to survive. The same goes for flower beds. The leaves also create wet, dark conditions that breed disease as well as attract insects and other inhabitants that cause you other problems like rodent infestation. When it comes to your sidewalks and parking areas around commercial properties, the leaves may hide dangers that can lead to accidents, including people tripping or sliding from ice or debris they can't see. The accumulated leaves can lead to similar problems for vehicles. Overall, when leaves pile up, it also makes it look like the business is not concerned about their properties. This may also impact on what visitors conclude about the business. The mess may be so bad that it even discourages customers from coming to your business. We understand just how challenging it can be to run a business and keep up with this type of maintenance. That's why we are here to help!
