Fall Commercial Landscaping is a Critical Component to a Healthy Property, and we are the Specialists!

Pugh's Earthworks If you are like most commercial property owners, you have probably got spring and summer on your mind. Who does not love seeing their lawns turn green, or the first flowers of the season bloom? Though they are certainly beautiful, these seasons also bring with them all kinds of lawn care needs—like mowing and watering. But what about fall? As autumn approaches, your lawn will be under attack from a new set of enemies: leaves! That is why it is important to hire Pugh's Earthworks to perform Fall Commercial Landscaping to prepare for this time of year before winter hits. Here are some tips on how to keep your lawn looking good through fall and into winter: Fall Leaf Removal Fall leaf removal is a great time to get rid of dead leaves and debris that may be littering your lawn. Fall leaf removal helps prevent disease and insects, as well as providing a better look for spring. The Pugh's Earthworks team will do this by hand or with the use of a blower, depending on how much work there is. They will use a rake first to remove most of the leaves and then switching over to either a push mower or hand-held blower for cleanup after that. If there is still some stubborn debris left behind after raking, that is why hiring a professional team of Commercial Landscape Technicians like Pugh's Earthworks is so vital to a healthy commercial lawn. Fall Mowing Mow grass at the highest setting. Grass should be mowed frequently, but not too short. The ideal height for the dry season is 3-4 inches. We mow often, but not too short. If we are cutting your lawn every two days instead of once a week or longer, it may be time to adjust our mower settings so that each pass cuts less than an inch off the topsoil and root system--which will help prevent any dead spots from forming in your lawn. We often use a mulching mower to cut your grass. This will reduce the number of clippings left on your lawn, which can help prevent disease and keep it looking healthy. If we are using a bagger attachment, we empty it as soon as possible after mowing so that the bags do not weigh down our mower or get clogged with debris like leaves and twigs. Fall Watering Make sure your lawn is watered regularly. Even if it rains, you should still make sure that your lawn gets the equivalent of one inch of water per week from a sprinkler or hand watering. Water deeply, but infrequently--about once every four days during the summer months.  Avoid using any pesticides or herbicides on your lawn unless absolutely necessary. These chemicals can put a serious strain on both the environment and humans who come into contact with them.  Use mulch to help keep moisture in the soil around trees and shrubs. The best way to keep your trees and shrubs looking healthy is [...]

Xeriscaping is One of the Many Design Jobs that we Specialize in!

Pugh's Earthworks Xeriscaping is a sustainable landscaping technique that uses plants that require little or no supplemental water once they are established. Xeriscaping focuses on using plants that have a low water requirement and attract beneficial insects to the garden. Plants used in xeriscaping include succulents, cacti, meadow rue, sagebrush and yucca. Grasses used in xeriscaping include buffalo grass and saw-tooth oak. Flowering shrubs and trees that work well for xeriscaping include aloe vera, hibiscus and coral bean. Rocks used in a xeriscape are typically smaller than those used in other types of landscaping because they do not retain as much heat. It is an environmentally friendly landscaping technique. It involves using native plants and rocks to create a landscape that requires less maintenance and water, thereby conserving natural resources. Xeriscaping can reduce your carbon footprint by reducing your use of fossil fuels and pesticides. You will also be contributing to the health of our planet by reducing storm water runoff into rivers, streams and lakes (which often contains chemicals from household products). Implementing this landscaping technique requires using native plants, mulch and rock to create a garden that requires less watering. The term "xeriscape" comes from the Greek word xeros, which means dry or parched. It's also known as water-conserving landscaping or environmentally friendly landscaping. Xeriscaping focuses on using plants that require little or no supplemental water once they are established. Plants that attract beneficial insects to the garden, such as butterfly bush (Buddleia) and trumpet creeper (Campsis radicans), can be used in xeriscaping. These plants also provide food for birds, bees and other pollinators. Xeriscape gardens may include some plants with a low water requirement such as native grasses and succulents like sedum or sempervivum. Xeriscaping is an environmentally friendly way to landscape a yard. It uses native plants and hardy shrubs, which can withstand the region’s extreme weather conditions without requiring much maintenance. Xeriscape also requires less water than traditional landscaping because it does not use any natural or man-made materials such as mulch or fertilizer.

Pond Construction and Maintenance

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks offers a variety of Pond Construction and Maintenance Services. We have been working in the industry for over 30 years now and have helped many clients like you who wanted quality work done at a fair price. Our services are also available for commercial properties, hospitals, schools and other places where their ponds need proper maintenance. The popularity of commercial property ponds has increased significantly in recent years, as property have become more aware of the benefits they provide. Residential ponds are usually smaller than those found on commercial properties and are often created by landscapers or homeowners who want to add a special touch to their landscape. These types of ponds generally require less maintenance because they are not used as heavily, but they still need regular attention so that they continue functioning properly. Commercial aeration systems should be installed at all times if your business has a pond on its premises; this will keep it clean and prevent algae growth from occurring over time! If you are interested in learning more about how we can help keep your property clean year-round--and ensure its longevity--call us today! Commercial ponds are often larger than those found at residential properties and require a more thorough maintenance schedule. This is because they are exposed to heavier traffic and more wear-and-tear than their smaller counterparts, which can cause them to accumulate debris over time. The presence of algae can be especially problematic in large ponds or lakes because it makes the water cloudy and discolored; if left unattended for too long, it may even pose a safety risk! Commercial Aeration Systems Aeration is the process of introducing air into water. The goal is to increase the amount of dissolved oxygen in your pond, which improves its health and helps prevent fish from dying from lack of oxygen (hypoxia). Commercial aeration systems are designed for large ponds that need more than one skimmer unit or submersible pump to keep them healthy and clean. They're often used in koi ponds, which can hold thousands or even millions of gallons of water; however, if you have a smaller backyard pond that doesn't require this much attention--say 100 square feet or less--you can still benefit from using an aerator on occasion to boost its overall health. Benefits include: Reduced water temperature. Stabilized oxygen levels (ponds without aeration can become stagnant) Prevention of fish disease and death from hypoxia. Reduced algae growth. Improved water clarity (including the removal of green water). Ponds have become a popular way to add value, beauty and interest to commercial properties. Not only can ponds be used as water features, but they also provide an opportunity for fishing or other recreational activities. In addition to these benefits, ponds can be used to control noise and improve air quality around your commercial property. Ponds can be used for a variety of purposes. They are often used as water features, but they can also serve as a place to fish or [...]

The requirements are determined by the company's needs as well as what type of tools and equipment they use on site. For example, if you are applying for an entry level position with little to no experience required then it is likely that your educational background is not going to [...]

We Are Your Commercial Landscaping Experts for Drainage Installation and Maintenance!

Pugh's Earthworks It has been a wetter summer in many parts of the country. This brings to light the importance of Landscape Drainage. When it comes to landscaping, most people think about things like how the property looks or what kind of plants will grow there. But the drainage system is just as important for commercial landscapes as it is for residential ones. Without proper drainage, your commercial property could end up with standing water and mud puddles that damage structures and cars when vehicles drive through them. We all know that water is extremely important for life and living. Water is the most important substance on Earth. It is essential to life and living, and it is what makes up more than 70% of the Earth's surface. Water is also a natural resource that humans have been using since they first started living together in communities. Water has many uses: it can be used for drinking, cooking food and bathing; it can be used as a transportation medium (for example boats); or it can be used as an energy source (for example hydroelectricity). Water plays a critical role in ecosystems because it provides habitat for plants and animals as well as nutrients for them to grow on; without adequate amounts of water available within an ecosystem there will not be enough food available for any species within that ecosystem which could lead them towards extinction if left unchecked over time due lack sufficient resources needed survive long term." It is also crucial for many commercial landscapes to have good drainage. Drainage systems can prevent water damage to buildings and other structures, as well as improve the health of your landscape. The best way to prevent this type of damage is by installing a system that takes excess water away from your property before it has a chance to pool up on your land or in puddles at its edges. Drainage systems are essential because they help prevent flooding during heavy rains and keep puddles from forming after heavy downpours. This means that you won't have any issues with mold growth or mildew since there will not be any standing pools of water left behind after every storm cycle passes through town! Drainage systems can also help prevent ice from forming on the ground during the winter. This is especially important for commercial properties that are located in colder climates or those with high traffic areas like parking lots and driveways. Large commercial landscapes need drainage systems that are designed to improve the health of the landscape and prevent water from damaging buildings, cars or other structures. A drainage system is designed to prevent water from damaging buildings, cars or other structures. A properly designed and installed drainage system will also improve the health of your landscape by preventing standing water from collecting in low areas and fostering healthy root growth. Drainage systems are often constructed using perforated pipes that carry excess water away from high traffic areas. In order [...]

Summer is Officially Here so Contact Us Now to Install or Adjust your Commercial Lawn Sprinklers!

Pugh's Earthworks If you have a business or large property, you know all too well the difficulties and costs associated with maintaining it. Commercial Lawn Sprinklers are one of the most important aspects of any lawn care business. They keep your grass green and healthy, but if not maintained correctly they can be a big problem. Here we'll cover everything from commercial lawn sprinkler installation to their benefits for businesses. Commercial Lawn Sprinklers Commercial lawn sprinklers are used in yards that are larger than typical residential properties. These sprinklers can be set up to water a large area, which makes them ideal for commercial applications or large yards. Commercial lawn sprinklers are typically used to water large areas, such as parks, sports fields and school yards. They are also commonly used on golf courses and industrial sites. Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks has been in business for over 30 years, and we have a reputation for quality work. We are a family-owned business that values honesty and integrity. Our customers appreciate our attention to detail, which is why they keep coming back to us year after year. As a full-service landscaping company, we offer a wide range of services. We can take care of all your lawn care needs, including mowing and fertilizing. If you have trees that need pruning or removal, we are happy to help with that as well. Commercial Lawn Sprinkler Adjustments Adjust the flow rate. Flow rates are measured in gallons per minute (GPM). If you have more than one sprinkler on your property, you will want us to adjust each one so that they all operate at similar rates. The general rule of thumb for commercial lawn sprinklers is to set them between 1/2 and 1 GPM higher than what's recommended for residential lawns. Adjust the spray pattern. Sprinklers come in many different shapes and sizes--some are round, others are square or rectangular; some shoot water straight out like beams from a flashlight while others create wide arcs from side-to-side across an area of grass or other plants. Adjusting the spray pattern is routine for our team. Typically, we turn the head of your sprinkler in either direction until you find a setting that works for you. To conserve we water, we frequently adjust your nozzles, so they shoot out water in a more concentrated stream rather than a wide arc. Commercial Lawn Sprinkler Water Flow When adjusting water flow, look for the following: The amount of water that is needed to cover your lawn. If you have a small yard and only one sprinkler, then this will be easy to determine. If you have an expansive area that requires more than one sprinkler, then it may take some time to get just right. How high should I adjust my sprinklers? The height of your lawn sprinklers should be set according to how tall or short your grass is so that they don't miss any areas while watering. For example, if there are tall trees around part [...]

You can have the best-looking grass in the neighborhood, but if it is too long or overgrown, it will not look nearly as good. Trimming helps keep your lawn looking healthy and green while keeping it free from weeds and pests that could affect its health. The best time to trim is during spring or fall when temperatures are not too hot or cold yet (but not right after a frost). Handheld trimmers work well on small patches of grass around flower beds or trees; electric models are better suited for larger areas like driveways where you need more power behind each stroke than manual devices offer. Trimming should be done regularly so that no one area becomes too thick with growth while others stay thinned out from previous cuts back down again -- this prevents uneven growth patterns across different parts of your yard which may cause some spots not being able to absorb nutrients properly through photosynthesis and could also cause problems with drainage. Regular maintenance helps keep your lawn looking healthy, green and free of weeds and pests that could affect its health. Pruning Services Pruning is a maintenance service that keeps your trees and shrubs healthy. It can be done at any time of year, but it is best to prune during the dormant season when plants are not growing. Pruning can be done by hand or with a machine depending on the size of your trees, shrubs, or hedges. Pruning removes dead or diseased branches to prevent further damage from insects and disease; it also promotes dense growth by removing extra shoots from branches that have grown too long, as well as removing suckers (sprouts) that grow below ground [...]
