Beautiful Estate Lawn   Handling Heat Stress on Lawns We all enjoy a lush, green, healthy lawn during the summer months.

Heat stress occurs typically during the hottest months of summer and results frequently in severe moisture loss for your lawn. Using the services of a professional landscaping company like Pugh's Earthworks will help you ensure your lawn has a good chance of surviving the effects of summer heat. Common indicators that a lawn is under stress: Ghost prints -  A sure sign that your lawn is under stress is when you walk on it and the blades of grass do not rebound. Leaving footprints of flattened grass that are referred to as ghost prints. Discoloration - Often the effect of high temperatures and drought causes a yellowing or browning of the grass tips or the entire lawn. Deep watering may remedy this unless there is a larger issue such as insect damage. The professionals at Pugh's Earthworks are trained and experienced to deliver the proper diagnosis. Compaction -  One clever way to determine if your soil is too dry is to try pushing a screwdriver into the surface of your lawn.  A hardened dry surface will make inserting the screwdriver very difficult, Conversely, if the screwdriver is easy to push into the ground, your lawn is most likely receiving adequately amounts of water. Before calling in the professionals, there are a few things you can do in order to try and self diagnosis problems with your lawn. Below are some of those: Check to see if your lawn might have a chinch bug infestation. These are small black and white insects that you will see crawling between the blades of grass. Another pesky insect are grub worms. They will actually eat the roots of your lawn leaving it unable to survive. If you are able to tug on the sections [...]

Spring Means it’s Time To Plant Shrubs

Pugh's Earthworks Tennessee Commercial Landscape and Maintenance Services 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. Now that winter is ending, it's time to think about planting for the spring time and adding more color and interest to your landscape. 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. Start with looking at the type of shrub you might want to add. 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.                                                                                                                                                                    

5 Advantages of Hiring a Commercial Landscape and Lawn Maintenance Company

We have five commercial landscape service operations in three states, including landscapes and service lawns and landscaping in Little Rock, Arkansas.  Our monthly commercial landscape services include seasonal maintenance for lawns and landscape areas for business clients. Commercial landscape and lawn maintenance services include planting, mowing, clean-up, landscape design, ice and snow treatment, and more. Here are five benefits to opting to work with a commercial landscape design and maintenance company like Pugh's Earthworks: 1. Creates an attractive look that matches your brand First impressions are everything as a prospect drives up to your business. Whether it's 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. 2. 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. 3. 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. 4. 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. 5. 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.

The Benefits of Mulch During the Winter Season

Pugh's Earthworks Tennessee's Landscape Maintenance Services Address Seasonal Needs Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville. We also design landscapes and service lawns and landscaping in Little Rock, Arkansas.  Our services include seasonal maintenance for lawns and landscape areas for residential and business clients, including planting, mowing, clean-up, landscape design, ice and snow treatment, and more. While winter is starting to draw to a close, there are still freezing conditions that must addressed to ensure your lawn and landscape can get through the season and thrive in the coming spring season. Mulching is one tactic that is important to do during the winter time. Mulching involves spreading organic materials over the top of the soil around plants. Made of shredded bark, manure, straw, and grass clippings, the mulch serves as a protective layer to maintain a regulated temperature while also helping the soil to retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Severe cold areas require a heavier mulch layer to ward off those freezing temperatures.  Where snow appears, cold-weather mulching also protects perennial plants by creating insulation. Another benefit of spreading winter mulch is that it can insulate the roots and keep them cold and dormant. For example, if trees are suddenly exposed to a warm spell in the winter and the roots aren’t protected by mulch, the tree can begin a false budding process that could damage or even kill the tree. Bulbs plants like tulips can also experience that process so it's important to have a proper mulch coating on the ground around bulb plants, too. When spring arrives and plants begin to bloom or sprout, the layer of mulching material that's been added around them can help minimize the weeds. Also, any spring rains that are absorbed into the soil before you mulch for the summer months will be better retained because of the remaining coat of winter mulch.

Keep Leaves Off Lawns, Sidewalks, and Parking Areas

Our monthly seasonal landscape care for lawns includes professional lawn care, including irrigation and sprinklers, fertilizing, reseeding, aeration, and pest control. Along with our professional landscape design and maintenance services, we also provide a wealth of expert advice on how to care for your residential and commercial landscapes. One of the things we often tell our clients is why it's so important to keep leaves off of lawns, flower beds, and sidewalks as well as clear this debris from parking areas. Leaves can accumulate quickly as they trees shed them for the fall and winter seasons. The effect is a pile of leaves. While they are unsightly, they also can cause problems. On lawns, the leaves can clog the grass so that the lawn can no longer breathe and get the oxygen it needs to survive. The same goes for flower beds. The leaves also create wet, dark conditions that breed disease as well as attract insects and other inhabitants that cause you other problems like rodent infestation. When it comes to your sidewalks and parking areas around commercial properties, the leaves may hide dangers that can lead to accidents, including people tripping or sliding from ice or debris they can't see. The accumulated leaves can lead to similar problems for vehicles. Overall, when leaves pile up, it also makes it look like the business is not concerned about their properties. This may also impact on what visitors conclude about the business. The mess may be so bad that it even discourages customers from coming to your business. We understand just how challenging it can be to run a business and keep up with this type of maintenance. That's why we are here to help!

Fall is a Good Time to Relocate Perennials

Pugh's Earthworks Commercial Landscape Maintenance Services For Tennessee Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville plus we service lawns in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Each season of the year brings different landscape needs. The past few weeks, we've shared how to take care of your lawn in the fall as well as prepare it for the upcoming winter season. Now, it's time to turn our attention to other areas of your landscape like perennials. During this time of the year, it's a good time to relocate perennials. Here's why along with tips on how to relocate those perennials. Make sure you transplant fall-blooming perennials at least six weeks before a hard frost. Signs that it's time to divide your perennials include it's too large for its present space or it's crowding other plants. Fewer flowers or straggly-looking leaves also tell you it's time for relocating these perennials. The day before you plan to relocate the perennials, water them well and cut back any tall portions.  Then, for clumping perennials like asters, chrysanthemums, and day lilies, you'll need to dig them up completely before dividing them up. Spreading perennials like phlox and bee balm look more like individual plants so you can dig up the ones you want to move and choose to leave some where they are. There are also woody perennials like rosemary and lavender. These have one main stem so you will need to sever the plant to relocate part of it. Taproot perennials like Oriental poppies also have one main root that you will have to dig up so you can remove the portions you want to relocate. Be sure to be ready to move these perennials immediately to their new spot. Otherwise, be sure to leave them in shade and give them water until you are ready to replant. When you replant, dig a hole for the perennials that is wider than the root ball. Include organic matter and fertilize run the hole to help feed the perennials. After putting the perennials in the hole, fill it with soil and add more fertilizer. Lastly, water them and add mulch to help insulate the roots. These newly divided perennials won't look good until the next season. They need to get accustomed to their new home and take root before they can stand up and bloom once more. As you can see, relocating perennials can be a lot of work. Call us if you would like to get professional help in taking care of your commercial or residential landscape.
