With Summer winding down and Fall starting later in September, now is the time to address Fall Commercial Landscaping Service. The hot summer has taken its toll on commercial landscaping, including lawns, flowers, shrubs and trees. In order to help these valuable assets, sustain the harsh winter, hiring the experts at Pugh's Earthworks is a smart move. There are many steps we will take to prepare for the winter. Each one is a critical element to protect you commercial landscaping investment. Below are some of the items our team will focus on. Aeration - This process is something that not everyone thinks about, but the process is so beneficial. Over the long hot summer months, typically the temperatures and the dry conditions have caused your soil to compact and harden. When this happens the roots of the grass and shrubs find it difficult to grow and thrive. The Pugh's team using special equipment will break up the soil and allow moisture and nutrients to flow freely so that the plants can once again establish strong root systems. Plant - Fall planting is an important part of preparation for the season. For example, the hot summer may have killed certain spots in the lawn or shrubs in the flower beds. Unless you want bare spots in your commercial property lawn, it is a necessary to reseed of sod these areas before the really cold weather sets in. Same is true for dead shrubs in the flower beds. The Pugh's team will cut back Perennials like peonies, iris foliage, Hosta foliage, and daylilies. Other types of perennials should not be cut back and our team while know which those are. We will also plant new perennial bulbs and shrubs. Fall is a great time because the soil is still warm, but the air is cooler. This creates a better environment to stimulate growth. Of course, we will encourage that you continue to water all new and existing plants and grass throughout the fall season. Mowing and Fertilizing - Fall is a great time to fertilize. The Pugh's Earthworks team has the experience to know the specific chemical balance to apply and the tools to do it properly. This is important because the lawn is hungry for nutrients as during the hottest days of summer, no fertilizer may have been applied. In addition, when our team mows, we will adjust our commercial grade lawn mowers to a lower height. This is necessary as keeping the grass too high can cause it to mat during winter and consequently die. Clean up - Now that the temperatures are starting to drop, so will the leaves from the trees. It is important throughout the Fall to keep dead leaves and other fallen debris off of the lawn. Clearly this debris can add to trapped moisture which often causes fungal diseases that [...]

Fall is full of lawn maintenance tasks, including aerating the soil. It is another important job that helps your lawn throughout the year. Below are some of the benefits of aeration for a healthy lawn. First, the soil in the fall season is still warm while the nights are cool, which makes this an ideal time of the year. Then, by aerating your soil, you can enjoy a healthier lawn with stronger roots and overall resiliency to make it through the tough winter months. Also, your lawn should be aerated if it undergoes heavy foot traffic, which can compact the soil. This is why golf courses always undertake regular aeration. Aeration of the soil is also good if it is a new lawn or if your lawn dries out frequently Focus on aerating your lawn anywhere between the end of August and November. During the fall, the grass can heal and fill in many  of the open areas that appear during the aeration process.  This will help prepare your grass for the spring. The aeration process creates pockets so that air and water can get through to the soil plus also helps to encourage root growth in the spaces that are made. This may also be the time to over seed your lawn as well as fertilize, depending on the state and health of this part of your landscape. Before starting the aeration process, make sure the soil is moist enough. Then, use aeration tools followed by removal of the soil plugs that are created from the process. After aerating the soil you'll need to continue fertilizing, mowing, and watering throughout the fall season. Since aerating the soil can take a lot of time and effort, it is a good idea to call in landscaping professionals to take care of it for you.
