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 Applies Mulch to Protect Shrubs and Trees During Winter

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks is the most trusted Mid-South Commercial Landscaping Business. With offices in Memphis, Nashville, Jackson TN, Littlerock and Southaven MS, we keep all types of Commercial Properties in tip top shape.  Now that we are into fall and looking ahead to winter, it is that time of year where temperatures start to decrease and eventually will dip well below freezing. For many plants and flowers, those frigid conditions can lead to damage unless they get an extra layer of protection. That is where the Pugh's Earthworks team introduces mulch as part of regular fall landscape maintenance services. In fact, mulching serves as one of the best blanket covers for things like strawberries, some perennials, and many other types of plants during cold conditions. Winter mulch helps stop soil from either freezing or thawing conditions. It is the repeated freezing and thawing that can force stems, roots, and bulbs/tubers to come out of the ground. Plus, this can severely damage or kill plants. Mid-South Commercial Landscaping Business There are different types of mulch to consider. Straw is one type. The benefits are that straw offers good insulation, encourages sufficient air movement, and does not smother plants or flowers. Just one bale of straw can cover 100 square feet to a depth of at least three inches. Other types of winter mulches to consider include bark chips, hay, chopped corn stalks, pine needles, or shredded leaves. Those mulches to avoid include whole leaves, sawdust, or grass clippings because they can form a thick mat and suffocate the flowers and plants. Wood chip mulch is ideal for the root zone areas of trees and shrubs. However, plants like hardy shrub roses don't need any winter protection like mulch. Yet, other types of rose plants may need a double layer of protection in the form of mulch and potting soil. Leave the mulching to us. Contact us today for a monthly service plan that includes mulching for the winter of all your commercial landscape areas. We can ensure your plants, flowers, and shrubs make it through the winter while keeping a beautiful view for your customers.

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 [...]

We service Hospitals, Cemetaries, Retail Shopping Centers, Industrial Properties and Office Complexes to name a few so you can image that each one offers unique challenges. Properties with steep terrains often require that our team build retaining walls to prevent the erosion of the lawn or flower beds. Some of the markets Pugh's Earthworks serves are hilly for example Littlerock and Memphis. There are several steps involved in building a retaining wall. The Pugh's Earthworks team is trained to build and to repair existing retaining walls. The typical steps involved to build a retaining wall typically include most of the following key steps and processes: Prepare a Trench - This is step one of the critical steps. In order to have a blueprint of where to dig, the area must be staked and marked with a Mason's Line. Add Drainage - Pugh's will use the proper drainpipe to allow for water to flow around the wall. Improper drainage will cause water to collect behind the wall which over time will cause it to weaken. Begin the Construction - The base blocks will be installed correctly so that as the wall is built it should have a natural lean into the hill and not lean away from the hill. Install Landscaping - This may not seem like a mission critical step, but actually it is very important. A major concern is the size of the plant or small tree. Depending on the variety, Pugh's Earthworks will know the proper planting distance from the wall to prevent the roots causing any damage to the wall's structural soundness. Existing Retaining Walls that have weakened over time need to be addressed as well. The Pugh's team is skilled at making repairs to holes in mortar, loose bricks, damaged drainage and other times of obvious problems.

Contact Pugh’s Earthworks to Protect Your Commercial Property in the Summer Heat

Pugh's Earthworks For those of us living in the middle parts of the country, the heat dome is settling in for the long haul. While there is not much rain in the forecast, triple digit temperatures definitely are. Commercial Landscaping is vital to keep lawns, trees, flowers and shrubs from dying and looking their best during the extreme heat of the summer. Pugh's Earthworks is the Commercial Landscaping Company to contract with. They are experts in all facets of Commercial Landscaping and will know what steps to take to protect your Commercial Property from the extreme summer heat. Water Pugh's Earthworks can install an automatic sprinkler system if you do not have one. That is one of our services and we are very experienced with installation and maintenance. An automatic sprinkler system helps ensure that your lawn receives the right amount of water at the right time. Keeping the soil moist is good but deep watering is more important that frequent short waterings. Grass needs at least an inch of water weekly. However, you do not need to water every day. It is actually infrequent watering that encourages deep root growth. Water must get below the root zone to help nourish the roots so they can learn to grow deeper in search of moisture and nutrients. Having a lawn with deep roots helps protect it when it gets so hot during those summer months. It is those deep roots that hold the water and keep the grass cooler so that it will not die out from the excessive heat. Here are some additional lawn maintenance tips to promote those deep roots for your lawn. Soil Start with cultivating the topsoil. Sandy loam or well-drained loam gives roots the ability to stretch out and grow. If you have sandy soil, know that it does not retain water very well. That is when you will need to add organic matter, which delivers the necessary nutrients and increases water retention. Mowing Mow frequently and keep grass at the right height for the type of grass you have. For example, grass with large crowns or clumps, which is typically Kentucky bluegrass or tall fescue, should be mowed at a much taller height. In contrast, zoysia grass should have a shorter mowing. Whatever kind of grass you have, be sure to mow no more than one-third of the blade lengths at a time. This stimulates growth and protects the roots. Fertilizer Fertilize at the end of the growing season to achieve strong root growth. Slow-release fertilizers are often touted as the best for promoting the growth of the grass roots. AgriGro bio stimulants have also been proven to increase root growth. This is because these substances help plants endure environmental stress better than those that were not treated. Other Maintenance You can also encourage strong roots by giving them plenty of room to grow. This means pulling any weeds, which have root systems that like to choke the roots of the grass. Plus, it involves periodic aeration, which [...]
