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.

Pugh’s Earthworks Commercial Landscaping Water Conservation

Pugh's Earthworks has Big Company Strength and Small Company Values! Recently, I took a drive from Oklahoma to Georgia for a combination Business and Pleasure two week trip. As I drove, the hills, trees, lakes and rivers seemed to get more plentiful and beautiful. Culimanting by the time I got to Chattanoga TN, I was in a different world. Going through Littlerock AR, Memphis and Jackson TN, I paused for proud reflection on Pugh's Earthworks and the part they play in Commercial Landscaping Water Conservation. Then I thought about our fellow Americans out West where water supply reservoirs are at a cricitically low level and rationing is in place. Pugh's Earthworks is one of the Mid South’ s leading commercial landscape installation and maintenance companies. From its beginning, the company has continued its commitment to quality, integrity and superior service. The company provides the highest quality landscaping services and commercial grounds management for various commercial properties.

In addition, as landscapes are designed, things like soil errosion and water conservation are always top of mind. Pugh's is a member of the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Below is an article written by a member of that organization regarding water conservation efforts in CA. Earlier this year, the State Water Resources Control Board voted unanimously to implement a statewide ban on the watering of nonfunctional turf in the commercial, industrial and institutional sectors in California that runs for one year. The board also put regulations in place requiring local agencies to implement water use restrictions as water supplies may be up to 20 percent lower due to extreme drought. In a webinar hosted on June 6 by the California Landscape Contractors Association, the Irrigation Association, NALP and Maureen Erbeznik & Associates, Warren Gorowitz with Hunter Industries, Peter Estournes with Gardenworks Inc. and Maureen Erbeznik discussed the nature of the restrictions and the options available to landscape professionals. Erbeznik explains that nonfunctional turf refers to areas that are solely ornamental. If the turf is used for recreational purposes or community events, then it is considered functional. Exemptions to the ban include spaces that use non-potable water for irrigation or areas with trees. The ban does not apply to residential yards. Stay on Top of Local Regulations Local retail water agencies can expand regulations at their discretion to places like multi-family housing, golf courses, cemeteries and subsurface irrigation. With more than 400 water agencies in the state, the fluidity of restrictions and regulations will vary on each area’s water situation. [...]

Hire Pugh’s Earthworks to Maximize the Efficiency of Summer Watering

Pugh's Earthworks has Operations in Tennessee, Arkansas and Mississippi Many parts of the country including the Mid-South, have had a very cool and wet May. However, it will not be long until the dry hot weather makes it critical to practice effective Summer Watering. Pugh's Earthworks is one of the largest commercial landscape design, installation and maintenance firms in the Mid-South area. Our clients include some of the premier office buildings, hotels, hospitals, churches and cemeteries in the cities we operate. In addition to the commercial customers we serve, we also provide landscape services for Homeowners Associations (HOAs), Condo Owners Associations (COA’s) and individual residential homeowners. A properly designed Commercial Landscape Sprinkler system, like the ones designed and installed by the Pugh's Earthworks Certified Landscape Technicians, will ensure that the lawn and plants on your property receive the exact amount of water during the summer. Protecting these plants is important as it is expensive to replace them. During the summer months, the hot weather and intense sunlight are tough for summer plants and lawns to take. That is why we often refresh both with extra water. However, there is still a need to water wisely during these hot months to be careful with water and get the maximum impact from your watering without wasting any of this precious resource. Below are some tips on how to water wisely to use less water as well as give your plants and lawn just the right amount: Water weekly: Pick one day a week to water your lawn and plants, preferably a time in the morning or evening where the sun and heat won't evaporate it too quickly. You may need to adjust it should there be summer thunderstorms or if you notice a better time where the water sticks around. Water deeply: Before you overwater, it's important to understand what this means and how much deeply involves. Check the soil and see if water has permeated the top six inches of clay soil or eight to 12 inches if you have loamy soil. Make sure the water is not stagnating on the top as this could mean your soil is compacted and it may lead to plant rot. Think long, soaking rain rather than many several quick sprinkles. Water when plants are ready: Plants will tell you when they are thirsty. Leaves will wilt or droop. The leaves may also yellow, curl up, or drop off. That means they really could use some water. Water in the morning: By focusing your plant and lawn watering on this point in the day, it gives the plants and lawn a way to fill up on water they can use throughout the day. Water plants when they need it: Besides when they are thirsty, there are other times where a plant or lawn may most need water. This includes giving more water to baby seedlings and transplants to help them because their root systems are not yet developed and acclimated to the soil.  Another group of plants that need water [...]

Pugh’s Earthworks will Help with all Commercial Landscaping Including Proper Spring Lawn Fertilization

Pugh's Earthworks is a Mid-South Premiere Commercial Landscaping Company We are just about done with our last days of freezing temperatures. Spring is near and in fact most of the USA will be Springing Forward this weekend for Daylights Savings Time. Fresh plant growth and watching things turn green again is so enjoyable. This is also the time of year when Commercial Property Owners start to consider their landscape design for the upcoming summer season. One very import facet of landscape care is Spring Lawn Fertilization. Now is the time to recruit the experts at Pugh's Earthworks! Absent the use of a professional Landscaping Company, below are all of the items a Commercial Property Owner would need to consider for proper Fertilization. It is much more effective to call in the professionals. Lawns need fertilizer during the early spring when the grass begins to green up. Feeding the lawn, shrubs, flowers, and other aspects of your landscape promote growth while also strengthening the roots so the temperature changes aren't an issue. There are several ways to apply lawn fertilizer during the spring season. A spreader ensures more even coverage than fertilizing by hand. Also, hand fertilizing may result in burns where the fertilizer is concentrated and pale areas that don’t get as much fertilizer as they should. Try a broadcast or rotary spreader because they are easy to use and do not cause striping like a drop spreader. However, a drop spreader ensures that there is no chance of overthrow causing fertilizer to land on streets, sidewalks, or driveways. At the same time, a drop spreader requires two trips over the lawn at right angles. Apply the fertilizer and then thoroughly water the lawn. This rinses the fertilizer off the grass blades so they will not burn and lets the fertilizer sink into the soil to do its job. Keep people and pets off the lawn for 24 to 48 hours. There are different types of fertilizer that can be used. Slow release doesn't have to be used as often, but these are more expensive. Fast-release offers quick results, but you have to apply it in smaller amounts and more often. Your risk of burning your lawn increases. Weed and feed is another fertilizer option. You will need to be careful around trees, shrubs, and garden plants. You can use organic materials like compost and manure, but you will have to use a lot  Also, horse manure may contain weed seeds. Liquid fertilizers aren’t recommended because they are difficult to apply evenly and require frequent applications. Be sure to water the lawn a few days before you plan to fertilize. When you do apply the fertilizer, make sure the grass blades are completely dry to avoid burns. If you would like help with fertilizing and maintaining your commercial landscape, contact us now to find out how a monthly plan can ensure you enjoy a beautiful commercial landscape throughout the year that welcomes your visitors.
