Pugh’s Earthworks is a Premiere Customer First Commercial Landscaping Business

Pugh's Earthworks I recently ran across an article from the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) that spoke to the importance of proper etiquette when it comes to Commercial Landscaping. Like any industry, treating customers like they are the most important is critical to any sustainable business model. Pugh's Earthworks is a premiere Commercial Landscaping Business in the Mid-South. Customers that utilize our services not only receive top quality services, but they also receive the respect and proper manners they deserve. The article was a good reminder that manner's matter. When you read the testimonials from the Pugh's Earthworks customers, it is clear our team fully embraces that fact. Below is an example: Testimonials “Act of Kindness.  So much of the time we only complain, but today I want to let you know of an extreme act of kindness expressed to me.  I was blowing the leaves off my carport and off my driveway when all of a sudden 8 young men with leave blowers came over and they blew the leaves off my entire front yard and added them to the ones they were cleaning up.  It took them less than 5 minutes, but I will remember this for the rest of my life.  We are elderly & my husband is a disabled veteran so I am sure you can tell how much this helped me.  Kudos to Pugh’s for hiring such compassionate & hard-working young men!” P. Harper Greenbrook The Pugh's Earthworks management team organizes periodic training classes for all employees. These cover the basics of safety, equipment handling and of course the proper interaction with all valuable customers. According to the NALP article, below are some of the basic principles a well-run service company like Pugh's Earthworks always follows: Commercial Landscaping Business Be Courteous This is the most basic level of etiquette all your employees should practice. Teach them to always be aware of people and train them to wave or smile at the customer or even passersby. Throttling down a blower or string trimmer as a neighbor walk by is a sign of respect. Your crews should know to behave on jobsite and refrain from horseplay or obscene language. Body language is also important. Teach your team members to make eye contact with the client when they’re speaking. This lets the customer know you are giving them your full attention. Discourage fidgeting or having a closed-off stance as this gives off the impression that you are not engaged in the conversation. Be Personal It means a lot to be known and taking the time to address your customers by their names when you are on their property helps them feel like they are not just a number in your book of business. If your crews struggle to remember all the names, provide them a cheat sheet they can look at before starting a job. Taking the time to look over the property and inform the client of any potential issues you see also shows you care about [...]

Pugh’s Earthworks Prepares Commercial Properties for the Winter

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks services many commercial landscaping clients in the mid-south. We are a Certified Commercial Landscaping Company that offers the best year-round services. The major markets we serve are Memphis, Nashville, Jackson TN, Littlerock and Southaven MS. This is the perfect time of year to have our landscape technicians spruce up your commercial property for the winter ahead. The leaves are dropping, grass is going dormant, and flowers are starting to wither. Preparing your commercial lawn and surrounding areas for winter, including flower beds, trees, and shrubs, is a critical strategy for maintaining beautiful landscapes throughout the year. So, there is much to get done in the fall season to prepare for that. Plants and seedlings need to be mulched while lawns need to be cleared of all the falling leaves. Plus, with winds and the start of rain, there is debris that should be removed plus trees and shrubs have to be pruned to get rid of any dead wood. This is also the time to winterize your commercial irrigation system to protect it from the cold elements. Certified Commercial Landscaping Company There are numerous actions that the Pugh's Earthworks team will take to ensure that your property looks clean and organized during the winter.  Below are some of the things we will address for you so that you can rest easy and know your property is well prepared. We know you want to keep your commercial lawn and surroundings looking beautiful throughout the season and into winter: Deadhead flowering plants because this will help keep them healthy. Remove all weeds and debris in the area regularly. This may be something that has to be done more frequently until the trees have shed all their leaves. Debris that also needs to be cleared includes branches and other items that get blown around during this season. Prune plants to create a tidy landscape and sense of order to your commercial surroundings. This also keeps the plants healthy, so they are ready to re-grow in the spring season. Pull all weeds that tend to make your landscape look messy and block your flowers and ornamental plants from putting on a spectacular display. Regularly check for insect damage so that no infestations get out of control. Edge and trim grass areas and mow at a height that keeps it all looking consistent. This regular mowing throughout the fall season will also help strengthen the roots and provide a way for new growth in the spring. Taking care of commercial lawn and surroundings requires a lot of time, which you may not have. Yet, you want your office building, apartment complex, or other commercial structure to look pleasing to the eye as well as neat and tidy. After all, it reflects on your business and impacts those that visit or use these commercial areas on a daily basis.

Protect Your Trees from the Cold Winter with the Help of Pugh’s Earthworks

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks is a top tier Commercial Landscape Company in the Mid-South. Our home office is Memphis, and we have other offices in Nashville, Jackson TN, Littlerock and Southaven MS. We have many satisfied customers as our mission is to make the customer's needs, the top priority. It is not too soon to start thinking about cold weather proofing your commercial property. This includes valuable trees. These are expensive to replace and take years to grow. Unlike humans or wildlife, trees are stationary. There is no place for them to go to get warm. Nature did provide them with the ability to shed leaves. This allows them to require less water. Then nature does allow them to go through some cell changes but at the end of the day, they count on humans to take care of them. That is where a professional and certified landscape technician can assist. Pugh's Earthworks employs a talented team of experienced and certified landscape technicians. Below are some of the important steps our team will address to protect your trees: Root Protection - Watering is a crucial step. Prior to first ground freeze, our team will be sure that ample water is applied around the tree soil. After the ground freezes, it is not necessary to water and the water applied prior to the freeze allows the tree to absorb and retain lots of moisture. The second step is to mulch around the tree. Roots can be damaged if temperatures drop to low like 15 degrees Fahrenheit for example. Pugh's Earthworks will apply mulch where needed. In addition, during the sidewalk and road clearing process for deicing, they will take extra precautions to ensure road salt does not get into the area that could be absorbed by the tree roots. Salt is bad for the roots and if absorbed into the trees structure can severely stunt the tree or kill it. Wrap the Trunk - A unique problem is something called sunscald. This occurs when the daytime temperature is warm, but the nighttime temperature is freezing or below. This can cause damage to the tissue of the tree. Pugh's Earthworks will use a special commercial grade plastic tree guard wrap to protect your trees from sunscald. Another benefit of the wrap is that it keeps deer from damaging the tree trunk when they use it to smooth their antlers. There are lots of deer in the markets Pugh's serves. Pruning - Late Fall and Winter is a great time to prune trees. One thing you do not want is for ice to build up on weak or damaged limbs. They will surely snap under the weight of the ice and that can cause damage to the tree. The Pugh's Earthworks team will carefully examine each tree on your property and remove dead or weak branches that could be problematic during the harsh cold winter.   Shop Now for Gallery of Services     Pugh’s Earthworks is strongly committed to [...]

Pugh’s Earthworks is the Best at Designing and Maintaining Commercial Property Flower Beds

Pugh's Earthworks Parts of the country are now hitting triple digit temperatures and the spring rains have vanished. While summer is a great season it also carries with it heat exposure that is challenging for plants. Commercial Property Flower Beds are vulnerable to heat and drought. However, with the proper maintenance of a professional landscaping company like Pugh's Earthworks, the plants have a much better chance of surviving and even thriving. Since summer officially started on June 21st, it is still early and a good time to speak with a landscape technician at Pugh's Earthworks about maintenance on your property's flower beds. Our team will be able to analyze the positioning of the flower beds and decide what plants to use.  It may be necessary to change out commercial flower beds around your business for flowers and shrubs that thrive in hotter temperatures and more intense sunlight. Below are some considerations that the Pugh's team may want to review with you as part of your commercial landscape maintenance program: Obviously, flowers that can handle the hot summer temperatures will be the first consideration.  These include delphinium, roses, peony, daylilies, asters, anemones, and iris.  Next, flowers that complement the property with their color and fragrance in order to provide visual interest should be a consideration. Perhaps you may pick flowers from different parts of the season that can handle early, mid, and late summer weather so that changing them out is not a frequent necessity. The Pugh's Earthworks team can then get to work. They will not just start planting with the new flowers. Instead, they will most likely choose to prepare the flower bed by removing old perennials and then using weed killer to remove any other type of bed growth. In addition, many times it is a critical first step that adding new soil and compost to provide nutrients for the flower seeds or flowers prior to the actual planting is necessary and something our team will handle with precision. This is also a good time to evaluate the shape of the flower beds and consider making cosmetic or environmental changes to the shape of the flower beds. Commercial Property Flower Beds do not always have to use the traditional straight-line flower beds. Instead, consider curved beds for a unique look. When doing this you can plant the flowers in groups of three or more rather than the straight line found in a vegetable garden style bed. Arrange your garden with an eye to plant color, shape and size as well as time of bloom to give your garden movement and provide new views every time you see it. Arrange plants, shortest to tallest, from front to back or perimeter to center in your bed. When arranging groups, consider the views of your flowerbed from the house and sidewalk as well as the view from up close to it. Use dramatic plants like hostas to brighten shady places; add dramatic punctuation with oriental lilies and commission annuals such as [...]

Customers Receive a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for all Services from Pugh’s Earthworks Including Weed Control Services

Pugh's Earthworks A well-kept lawn whether Residential or Commercial makes a statement about the property. That is one reason owners focus on Weed Control Services. The professional landscape technicians at Pugh's Earthworks are very good at all elements of Commercial Landscape Maintenance. This of course includes keeping the property free from unsightly weeds. First impressions as they say are important. Commercial Property Owners want customers and employees to get the impression that the property is well maintained. The Summer season is wonderful. However, it seems to be a season when lawns are vulnerable to the introduction of destructive weeds.  Pugh's Earthworks will apply preemergent during the Spring to prevent the germination of all varieties of weeds. Even with this valuable preventive measure, weeds still find a way to reenter the lawn. This is why having an experienced Commercial Landscaping Company can make the difference in the appearance of the property year-round. There are numerous varieties of harmful weeds. Below are few of the most common. Crabgrass and Nutsedge - These are grassy type weeds. They tend to blend in better to the normal grass which is their secret to eventually dominating the lawn. A good technique that Pugh's Earthworks may employ is to aerate, water and fertilize the property in the proper quantities and application. This method tends to help the health of the grass you want to grow, and it can eventually overtake and smother out the crabgrass. Broadleaf Weeds - There are several types of broadleaf weeds. They tend to stand out more and truly make any lawn appear unkept. They can also be difficult to eradicate. Some of the more common types of broadleaf weeds are Knotweed Spurge, Dandelion, Ground Ivy, and White Clover.  There is no mistaking these unsightly plants with their large leaves and often flowers. They clearly to not belong in the commercial landscape. Treating broadleaf weeds can be more difficult. Sometimes if there is not a tremendous infestation you may be able to pull them by hand. Often times it requires the expertise of a trained landscape technician to come in with the proper herbicide and post-emergent control procedures. Handling of these chemicals can be hazardous and not effective if not used properly. That is where the Pugh's Earthworks professionals are experienced and are the best solution for complete Weed Control.     Pugh's Earthworks Weed Control Services The headquarters for Pugh's Earthworks is in Memphis, Tennessee. However, the company has experienced wonderful growth over the years due to the fine work they perform and the quality of the customer service delivered.
