Pugh's Earthworks “We Love Our Customers” and “We Appreciate the Opportunity to Serve.” I worked in corporate for a good many years and I cannot remember more than two or three really nice Commercial Office Patio Landscapes. Most of the time this was not a top priority. However, for those few very nice Office outdoor gathering spots, they were used smartly for customer after hour events for wine and hors d' oeuvres. They were also nice places for employees to take a breather and recharge. Pugh's Earthworks is a premiere Commercial Landscaping Company doing business in the Mid-South. One of our specialties is Commercial Landscape Design. After we consult with our clients and fully understand what design they are desiring, we are able to deliver the precise end result they requested. This includes Commercial Office Patio Landscapes.

Pugh’s Earthworks Professionally Designs and Maintains Retail Center Landscapes

Pugh's Earthworks Can Handle Commercial Landscape Jobs of all Sizes Creating or Designing and Maintaining Retail Center Landscapes is a true art. There are so many elements that go into the work that most of us who go to Retail Centers do not have any idea of the effort involved. There is a social aspect of a Retail Center. Yes, people generally visit the Center to shop but there is also the socializing effect of being with family and around others. Not something that has been easy during the previous two years. In addition, if you are with someone that has the "shop until you drop" mentality, you definitely need some pleasing rest areas to catch your breath. Or maybe stay while your partner visits every store in the Center. There is a method to the design also that creates curiosity for patrons. For example, creating curved sidewalks and benches makes for a more aesthetically pleasing environment. Many Retail Centers built years ago used more of a straight line or rigid approach to designing sidewalks and sitting areas. Designing more curves makes the environment a little softer and less rigid. In the cold months of Winter, a nice and safe fire pit can add an element of the holiday spirit plus provide a place for shoppers to warm up and enjoy being outside. Parking lots are a key element to attracting repeat customers. Depending on what part of the country the Retail Center is located in, super-hot summer temperatures can make for very desolate patches of desert like concrete or asphalt. A professional Commercial Landscaping Company like Pugh's Earthworks will be able to design green areas to break up the parking lot and make it more appealing. They will know exactly what types of plants and trees to plant in the green areas to provide shade and beauty. Additional factors to consider with your Retail Center Landscapes are water fountains and color. Misting fountains that provide outdoor cooling for shoppers and moving water pools that provide beauty are always popular. Then planting the right flowers to highlight the walkways, pots and rest areas add beauty and freshness. Pugh's Earthworks has designed and maintained multiple Retail Center Landscapes in their Mid-South Region. Lighting is another important element of an effective Retail Center design. Shoppers will feel much safer if parking lots have ample and proper lighting. Not to mention navigation through the Retail Center is much easier if there is good lighting. A great Commercial Landscaping Company like Pugh's Earthworks will not only design mission critical lighting but also decorative lighting that adds some sparkle and fun to Retail Center Landscapes. In summary, as you start the process for choosing a Commercial Landscaping Company to design and maintain your Retail Center, please consult with Pugh's Earthworks. One of our many commercial property specialties is retail shopping centers. We have been taking care of retail shopping center landscape for decades, including parking lots, open areas, and indoor landscaping at shopping malls. Unlike [...]

Hire Pugh’s Earthworks and ensure your valuable Trees are protected throughout the Winter

Pugh's Earthworks Winter Tree Care Winter Tree Care is an important component of any commercial landscaping year round program. Trees are a valuable asset and expensive to replace. Not only do trees provide shade during the hot temperatures of summer but they also add beauty to commercial properties. The Certified Commercial Landscape Technicians at Pugh's Earthworks are trained in all aspects of commercial landscaping which includes knowledge of tree care. It is some times common for people to get complacent when trees and grasses are dormant. The problem is that during these harsh cold temperatures, there is still a need for attention and care. Some of the steps the Pugh's Earthworks professionals will take to ensure their customers trees remain healthy are below: Winter Tree Care Deep Watering During the Winter months the tree roots are still growing deeper. They are on a continual journey search for water and nutrients to sustain the tree above the ground. However, if there is a shortage of water, the roots can become less able to continue their growth. At Pugh's Earthworks, our staff will continue to assess the soil conditions through the Winter. If it appears there is a shortage of natural moisture, they will take steps to start a deep watering program. Winter Tree Care Mulching It is common knowledge, for the most part, that mulching carries with it many healthy plant benefits. Therefore, properly applied mulch is something the Pugh's Earthworks team will focus on. Consequently, the trees of our commercial property owners will reap the benefit of retained moisture and countless nutrient. Tree Pruning Pugh's Earthworks is very talented at making commercial landscapes standout. One practice that is always top of mind is proper tree pruning. When trees are pruned during the summer growth months, there is danger in bug and fungus infestations. This is because the limbs are full of sap supporting the summer time upward growth of the tree. The best time to prune trees is during the dormant season like late Fall and Winter. There is far less chance of disease and tree damage during this time. Tree Protection Older more mature trees have developed a thick sturdy trunk. They are able to with stand harsh temperature and strong winds. However, younger trees that were recently planted are not as equipped to handle harsh condition. The professionals at Pugh's Earthworks know when a tree needs to have the extra protection provided by burlap trunk wrapping and more frequent deep watering.           Pugh's Earthworks is not only a company that prides itself with superior customer service. That is to say, service which in fact is backed by a satisfaction guarantee. They also take great pride and see value in participating as a member of numerous industry groups related to their business. One such group is The Apartment Association of Greater Memphis.

Pugh’s Earthworks is the expert commercial landscaping company to call for advice on winterizing your irrigation system

Pugh's Earthworks Commercial Property owners spend thousands of dollars on irrigation systems. These are vital to keep the property lawns, trees, flower beds and shrubs from dying during the hot summer months or during periods of severe drought. The expert landscape technicians at Pugh's Earthworks are trained to help commercial property irrigation systems stay in superior working order. This includes winterizing so that pipes do not break causing property damage and expensive repairs. Winterizing irrigation systems is not as important obviously if the property is in say South Florida where temperatures rarely get to or below freezing. However, for a vast portion of the US, this is a necessary procedure. A good general rule is that if you feel or if the meteorologists in your region are forecasting sustained long periods of freezing temperatures, it is a good idea to call in the Pugh's Earthworks professionals for a consultation. Some good rules of thumb or guidelines to help you decide to winterize or not are: How intricate is your system? Like automobiles for example. Some are basic no frills models while others have all sorts of fancy electronics and gadgets. Irrigation systems can also be basic or very complicated with very expensive parts and accessories. Sometimes these parts are hard to find and usually quite expensive to replace. How large is your system? Depending on the property type, for example a retail shopping center or industrial park may be massive and have a huge irrigation system. Your certainly may not want to risk the expense of repairs to a large irrigation system. Conversely if your property is smaller then perhaps you need to weigh the risk of the winterization process time and cost. How old is your system? Older systems often have parts that are hard to come by or even obsolete. Not winterizing an older system may be a huge risk. At the end of the day, the decision to winterize your irrigation system or not is a personal one. When you consider the value of your project, it makes sense to hire a Pugh’s Earthworks Certified Landscape Technician. These skilled professionals can take you through all phases of your project.

A couple of good choices for Evergreens are the Blue Dwarf Spruce which adds a blueish tone and the Gold Thread False Cypress which adds sparking yellows. If you are a lover of wildlife, attracting birds can be more of a challenge in the winter.

Pugh’s Earthworks is the commercial landscaping company to hire for your year round landscaping needs

Pugh's Earthworks Like many other processes, commercial landscaping is a year round task. Each season renders different needs for plants, trees and lawns. When you hire a professional commercial landscaping company with the skills offered by Pugh's Earthworks, you can rest assured that your commercial property will be kept in pristine condition year round. Now that fall has arrived and the weather is changing, it is time to take a more in-depth look at fall commercial lawn care services and what that involves. The fall commercial lawn care service includes seeding, dethatching, aerating, over-seeding, and fertilizing. Mowing -This is the time to start decreasing the height of your lawnmower. You will want to end up somewhere around an inch and a half high on your lawn height. The frequency of mowing is also determined by how fast the grass grows during this time. Take one-third of the blade or less. Also, it is better to mow in the evening so the sun is not beating down on it. Weeding - By this point, the weeds should be disappearing. There may be a few stragglers left to take care of before winter sets in and they completely go away. Trees and Shrubs -This is the time to also pay attention to trees and shrubs as well as the lawn, doing deep root fertilization. This provides your landscape with the essential nutrients it needs for the winter. Raking - It is very important to remove all leaves that have built up on your lawn. If you leave them, they will decompose and use up any soil moisture plus invite insects to your lawn. This will all cause damage, including dead spots on the lawn that will be a welcome home for weeds in the springtime. Aerating - Because lawns become compacted over time, this can reduce air pockets that are necessary pathways for nutrients and water to reach grass roots. That is why aeration becomes an annual event that is usually done in the fall. It loosens up the soil, returning those air pockets to the lawn. Over Seeding - Adding more seeds to your lawn can help fix dead spots and creating grass that is lush and beautiful for the upcoming spring season. Fall Fertilizing - A special fall fertilizer keeps the lawn healthy during the autumn months so that it has the nutrients it needs to get through the winter.

Pugh’s Earthworks is the commercial landscaping firm to call for your year round pest control

Pugh's Earthworks Pest control is a year round project and the professionals at Pugh's Earthworks have got you covered. In the Fall pests are looking for a warm place to hibernate for the winter. While they are living in the walls of your structure, they build colonies and nests and ultimately bring destruction and disease. Proper treatment plans like those offered by Pugh's Earthworks will prevent these unwelcome guests from taking up their winter residence inside your commercial building. Then there is also the Spring season to worry about as well. Spring is the season for rebirth and renewal, and that includes animals and insects along with grass, plants, and flowers. While that is good overall, all those insects can wreak havoc on your commercial landscape. These pests include fleas and ticks, mosquitos, flies, ants, cockroaches, and termites. This is the season to start with your insect control strategies, which can help how much pest control work you have to do the rest of the year. 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. Partner with Rosie's Pest Control, which as part of Pugh's Earthworks, has pest control services. This can help by regularly treating all lawn and landscape areas to limit any insects or pests. 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.

Sometimes Fall is a great time to apply new Sod to your commercial lawn and the experts at Pugh’s Earthworks will know

Pugh's Earthworks Often the effects of a long summer can take a severe toll on lawns. In these instances, sod application may be the best solution to help restore the landscape. The professionals at Pugh's Earthworks know when sodding is the most advantageous corrective measure for commercial property lawns. Some of the clear and obvious benefits to sod is that it provides for an immediate lawn! Though there are arguments for sod application in the spring verses the fall, below are some things to consider when sodding appears to be the right solution. Sod can burn easily under the scorching Summer Sun which is near by if sod is laid in the Spring. By applying sod in the Fall the temperatures are cooler allowing the root system to develop over the Fall, Winter and Spring months. Sod will not require as much water to survive if applying in the Fall. The reason is because the grass is beginning the dormancy cycle and the roots will not require as much water. When it comes to the actual laying of the sod, it is always best to use the services of a professional landscaping company like Pugh's Earthworks. Our experts will know the proper amount of compost and fertilizer to mix with the soil. This is very important for the sod to take hold and get off to a great start. During the first few weeks, the Pugh's Earthworks certified technicians watch over the new sod. Proper amounts of water must be applied if the Fall season is dry and absent normal rain fall. Taking root is the ultimate goal for the new sod. The landscape technicians will be viewing sections of the sod to make sure new root growth is starting. Purchasing sod and having it installed is expensive. To ensure that your newly purchased sod has the best chance of success, hire the professionals at Pugh's Earthworks. We have the trained staff, the proper equipment and the burning desire to make sure our clients are satisfied.           Pugh’s Earthworks Credentials/Affiliations/Degrees, Certifications The Pugh’s Earthworks team has all the proper credentials, degrees and certifications necessary to deliver top quality landscape and lawn maintenance design, installation and maintenance services.
