Pugh’s Earthworks has the experience to control lawn and shrub insect damage

Pugh's Earthworks May is now here and Spring is in full swing. Such a beautiful time of year. The weather is becoming comfortable, lawns are starting to green, flowers are blooming, trees are leafing out and insects are coming out of hiding! Pugh’s Earthworks services include pest control for commercial and residential properties. We partner with Rosie’s Pest Control and hold the necessary certifications in compliance with state regulations to prevent, eliminate and exclude pests from commercial properties, inside and out. A wide variety of common pests including mosquitos, flies, bedbugs, rodents, roaches, spiders and ants are treated with EPA approved, environmentally friendly products. Safety of individuals and pets is key in all treatment procedures. “Convenience is of utmost importance to property managers and business owners, and we have expanded our services to include indoor and outdoor pest control solutions in order to accommodate the needs of our commercial clientele” says owner Mark Pugh. “We feel that offering a more comprehensive variety of services is in the best interest of our existing and potential customers.” Mark Pugh has over 20 years of experience in the landscaping business and Pugh’s Earthworks has offices in Memphis, Little Rock, Nashville and Jackson MS. The Pugh’s business model has been to provide excellence in customer service and listen to what their clients are asking for. This willingness to adapt and expand has resulted in a successful courier service that was born out of flower delivery vans. Now, with the pest control expansion, Pugh’s has taken advantage of another opportunity to serve its customers more completely. The Pugh brothers have done an admirable job with business expansion and adapting to meet the needs of existing customers in a constantly changing economic climate. Here are some tips for spring insect control: Store and dispose of food and waste properly, including any bins located around your commercial property. Keep these bins tightly closed and empty them daily. Control moisture and standing water around your commercial property. High humidity contributes to pest egg production. Fix any leaks and clear out gutters and downspouts. Also, trim tall grass and remove any wet or decaying wood. Inspect perimeter areas around your commercial property for areas that may ideal for insects to breed and live. Treat these areas first. Trim back trees and shrubs touching your commercial building as insects like to live there. If there are any fruit trees, clean these up because ants and other insects love the fruit. Keep all areas of your commercial property as clean as possible. Insects like debris and trash so remove all brush piles, excess leaves, and trash. Avoid mulch because insects love its warmth and moisture. The mulch should be used sparingly or not at all. Contact us now to find out how we can reduce and even eliminate insects now so you don't have to deal with them throughout the year. By getting control of pests now, there will be less work to do the rest of the year. Only companies that have [...]

Tennessee Department of Agriculture Chartered/Licensed Mississippi Bureau of Plant Industry licensed Arkansas State Plant Board Licensed Landscape Industry Certified Below is a partial excerpt of EPA comments found on the Tennessee Department of Agriculture website. Clearly there are many factors to consider when applying chemicals. "The ESA is intended to protect and promote the recovery of species that are in danger of becoming extinct. Threats to a species from habitat destruction, pollution, over-harvesting, disease, predation and other natural or man-made factors must be reviewed and evaluated before an animal or plant can be placed on the federal endangered or threatened species list. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service, collectively known as the Services, administer the ESA. However, the ESA requires that all federal agencies, including EPA, make sure that any action they authorize, fund or carry out won’t jeopardize the existence of listed species or “destroy or adversely modify” any designated critical habitat for that species. The role EPA has in implementing the ESA is to ensure that the use of pesticides is not likely to jeopardize listed species or destroy or adversely modify their critical habitat when we register pesticides. When EPA determines that use limitations are necessary to ensure that legal use of a pesticide will not harm listed species or their critical habitat, we may seek to change the terms of the pesticide application to establish either generic or geographically specific pesticide use limitations. When geographically specific use limitations are necessary, Bulletins are developed to put the necessary mitigations into place. These mitigations are specific to the area(s) where the species is exposed to the pesticide(s) in question. Pesticide labels refer the pesticide user to Bulletins Live!

Pugh’s Earthworks specializes in all types of Hardscaping

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville.

Our monthly services include landscape design and maintenance, customized to your needs, budget, and seasonal situation. With offices in Memphis, Nashville, Jackson TN, Little Rock and Southaven MS, Pugh's Earthworks specializes in all aspects of commercial landscaping. One of the many elements of landscaping involves the important design and building of Hardscapes. Depending on the commercial property type, Hardscapes can be crafted to stay with the architecture of that building. For example if it is a very modern structure, concrete and stone may be more appropriate. Where as an older building may call for more traditional Hardscaping created from wood. Each phase of commercial landscaping plays a valuable role in the over all aesthetic, environmental and value of the commercial property. Hardscaping is one of those critical elements. So what are some of the important parts Hardscaping plays in the property design. Below are a few of those: Direction and Safety - A properly designed walkway serves to direct people to stay on the path. Often there are areas where you do not want foot traffic so by creating an attractive and safe pathway, typically people will use it as opposed to walking across the grass or other Soft Scaping. In addition, a properly designed pathway can keep employees, vendors and customers from falling and injuring themselves. Better Employee Interaction - During times of great outdoor weather, employees can enjoy some much needed change of scenery from the breakroom. A beautiful outdoor design with a nice patio, benches and tables can be a place where employees can gather for lunch. The fresh air and sunshine makes for a more comforting and interactive environment. Happier employees that enjoy working together as a team naturally leads to better productivity. Improved Property Utilization - Properties can vary in terms of sunlight verses shade or water collection verses dryness. Hardscapes will embrace the differences and make better use of the overall property. Increased Value - Hardscaping can add value to your commercial property by displaying creative and functional design. Commercial property owners take pride in their property and beautiful hardscapes. Pugh's Earthworks professional landscape designers create some of most amazing hardscapes in the industry. Property Appearance - A beautifully designed hardscape will leave visitors with the impression that you have a first class operation. You do not want people to visit the property and their first impression to be that you do not invest in the overall appearance and environmental effectiveness.   About Pugh's Earthworks The success story of Pugh's Earthworks is special.

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville.

Our services include landscape design, landscape and lawn maintenance, pest control, and seasonal services like snow and ice removal. As part of the regular maintenance we provide businesses and residences, it is important to regularly fertilize and feed a lawn and surrounding landscape with fertilizer. Doing so in the spring provides a way to help strengthen roots and promote essential growth for grass, shrubs, and more. With the spring season just starting, it's a critical time to get fertilizing done. This is because grasses start putting their energy into root development. It's a good time to give grass a helping hand. But, you don't want to overdo the fertilizing because grass and plants could use the help throughout the season to sustain that same level of energy to get all the growing they need to get done. Therefore, we tend to do more fertilizing during the mid to late spring. We adhere to a strict process for fertilizing your lawn because we know this optimizes results while minimizing any damage that fertilizing mistakes can cause. Our philosophies to veer on the side of less fertilizer than too much. This will help to eliminate the chance of burning those fragile new blades of grass. We also use equipment that helps us spread the fertilizer evenly. The fertilizer is applied in a crisscross manner to ensure complete coverage. All of our landscape professionals wear protective gear to keep their eyes and skin safe from the fertilizer. We also focus on clean up to leave your commercial lawn or residential lawn looking as tidy as possible. That often involves cleaning up excess fertilizer from driveways, patios, and sidewalks.

Get ahead of the summer heat and hire the professionals at Pugh’s Earthworks to design and install your sprinkler system

Pugh's Earthworks The certified landscape professionals at Pugh's Earthworks will help any commercial property owner with an optimum sprinkler system design. After careful review of the terrain, soil conditions, types of grass planted and climate for the region, you will be assured that during the periods of critical watering, your sprinkler system will properly handle the job. Consultation with our customers is invaluable and we want to be sure that we answer all questions before and after installation. Customers may also visit our Q&A link on our website for fast and accurate answers to all types of Commercial Landscape questions. Below is an example of some Q&A regarding sprinkler systems: Q: How will I benefit from an in-ground sprinkler system? A: Since hand watering is done on a random basis, and at irregular intervals, an automatic sprinkler system will actually, in most cases, use less water. It will also disperse the water at an even rate, and for a predetermined amount of time. This allows you to water sunny and shady areas for different periods of time, and to water when it is most efficient. One obvious benefit is the ability to continue a watering program while you are away on vacation, etc. Q: How long does a system take to put in? A: It would depend on the area that is trying to be covered. An average size lawn (@15,000 sq. ft.) can usually be done in one full day, depending on the situation. A large country lawn can take anywhere from two to four days. On average, we spend one to two days on a job. Q: What is a back flow device, and why do I need one on my sprinkler system? A: A back flow device is generally a brass assembly that will prevent any water from the sprinkler system from getting into the drinking water supply, and are required by all municipalities. There are many different types of these, and each individual municipality has differing requirements for the installation. Q: What type of maintenance does the system require? A: All systems need to be winterized at the end of the season. This is done by attaching an air hose to a fitting on the water line, and blowing all of the water out of the system. Most people that we install systems for simply turn it back on in the springtime themselves. We do offer the service of opening systems for the season. The quality of the products used initially, and of the overall installation, play an important part in the long term service of the system. The better the products and installation, the less trouble you should expect in the future.   Sprinkler Installation About Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville.

Spring is the time to let the Certified Pros at Pugh’s Earthworks help with shrubs and flowers for your commercial property

Pugh's Earthworks Spring will be here in just two weeks. Pugh's Earthworks is preparing their planting schedules to start planting shrubs and flowers. Our commercial clients will have the most colorful and attractive landscapes in town. Shrubs are an ideal item to add because they add texture, depth, and scope to your landscape. They can be natural dividers, too, to create different sections to your commercial landscape or residential yard. The professionals at Pugh's Earthworks will consult with our customers and mutually decide on the type of shrub to best fit in with the landscape theme desired. There are flowering and non-flowering shrubs that work well in different growing zones. As your landscape partner, we can recommend shrubs that work well for your environment, including considering how much shade or sun that area may offer. Planting shrubs involves a specific process to make sure they can adapt and thrive where they are planted. Make the soil moist  before digging a hole for the shrub.  From there, dig a hole that is three or four times as wide as the container the shrub came in. However, the hole should be about the same size as the height of the containers. Fill the hole with water and then let it drain out before putting the shrub in the hole you dug. Put half the soil back into the hole and pat it down. Now, add the rest of the soil and compact that lightly. Add water and mulch around the top of the soil. For the first two months after planting the shrub, water it at least once a week if it hasn't rained. If this sounds like more work than you think you can do or you would prefer a professional to plant and manage your shrubs and landscape, then contact us. We would love to work with you and design and maintain your commercial or residential landscape. Colorful Shrubs and Flowers Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville. We have five commercial landscape service operations in three states, including landscapes and service lawns and landscaping in Little Rock, Arkansas. Our monthly services include landscape design and maintenance, customized to your needs, budget, and seasonal situation. One thing we offer our commercial clients is an online Q&A. Below is one example regarding landscape design: Q: After I have decided upon the landscape rooms of my design, what are my next steps in the design process? A: Now that you have thought about your property in terms of rooms and established some priorities, it’s time to walk around your property and inventory and evaluate it. Doing so will help you objectively consider its positive aspects and limitations. There may be some things that are not possible once the property (site) is inventoried, while new possibilities may emerge. In any case, your design priorities must fit the site, or you will have problems. For example, planting a rose garden (a priority) in a shaded [...]

Pugh’s Earthworks is a premier landscaping company that will enhance the appearance and value of your commercial property

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks is a premier landscaping company that will enhance the appearance and value of your commercial property! All commercial property owners want their property to generate revenue. Otherwise the investment is not of value. Hiring a professional and highly experienced company like Pugh's Earthworks ensures that you are headed the right direction for covering the main goals of proper landscape design and maintenance. A few of the major objectives for any property all below: Creates an attractive look that matches your brand - First impressions are everything as a prospect drives up to your business. Whether it is in a retail center, office building, or standalone property, it has to look nice and well-maintained. That's because how it looks provides an impression of what the business might be like. You want them to stop, park, and come in and do business with you rather than keep on driving. A commercial landscape company knows how to create an inviting look to draw customers in. Helps you become an eco-friendly business - You may not know how to change your landscape so it uses less water or takes advantage of eco-friendly practices. That's when it makes sense to leave it to the commercial landscape professional who understands how to use native plants and design an eco-friendly landscape that contributes to the environment rather than takes away precious natural resources. Increases productivity - You can focus more on your business and less on the time-consuming activity of taking care of your landscape. Plus, will be inspired and motivated by the attractive landscape to get more done. Working with a commercial  landscape design professional, you can also add things like a patio and outdoor seating to encourage employees to go outside and enjoy their breaks, so they come back refreshed and ready to work. They may even enjoy working outside when weather permits and get more done by doing so. Raises commercial property value - Similar to a residential property, the more attractive your commercial property is the more valuable it becomes should you go to sell it, lease it, or take out a loan. A commercial landscape company can help you add features like lighting, hardscape, and other features that do the most to raise value. Attracts more customers - A professional commercial landscaping company can help you attract more customers that are drawn to your business just from the inviting fountain, lighting, seating, and array of flowers, greenery, and even lawn. This attractive and natural look is a way to draw people in who might have otherwise continued to walk on by. For more information on how our commercial landscape company can help your business, please contact us.
