Although it may seem like a lot of work, it's not hard to do and can actually be fun! Lawn maintenance includes watering, mowing and fertilizing. Watering your lawn will help keep it green and healthy by allowing the roots to grow deep into the soil where they can get more nutrients from decaying organic matter. Proper watering also helps prevent fungus and other diseases that affect the grass blades themselves. Mowing regularly will keep vegetation at an even height so that water penetration into the soil is efficient. Fertilizers should be applied in spring before new growth occurs (usually March-April), then again in late August through early September before winter sets in Sod Installation Sod is a great way to add greenery and privacy to your property. Sod also provides color, texture and an opportunity for you to create an outdoor oasis. The sod installation process includes rolling out the pieces of sod in rows, cutting them with scissors where they meet other pieces, removing any grass clippings left on top of the soil, watering thoroughly and then keeping an eye on how quickly new roots grow through it so that you can trim them back at regular intervals (no more than once per month). Flower Installation Flower installation is a great way to add color to any business, whether it’s inside or out. There are many different ways flowers can be installed depending on your needs and budget. The best time of year for flower installation is spring or summer, but you can even do it in the winter if you live in a warmer climate.

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks provides Commercial Landscape Design and Maintenance to many businesses in the Mid-South. Our home office is located in Memphis, but we also have offices in Nashville, Jackson TN, Littlerock and Southaven MS. The certified landscape technicians at Pugh's Earthworks are skilled at all aspects of commercial landscaping service. One very important area is the design and build out of Hardscapes. The popularity for hardscapes has grown over the years due to the many benefits a property can receive from a well-designed and completed hardscape project. Pugh's Earthworks keeps up with all growing trends and delivers the best service to all of our customers in the five major markets we serve and surrounding areas. The presence of well-designed Hardscaping is critical to any commercial property.  Below are some things to consider as you evaluate modifications to existing or designing new hardscaping. Aesthetics - When clients, employees and vendors visit your commercial property, the presence of beautifully designed, installed and maintained hardscape will add definition and a sense of organization to the property. Hardscapes act as a frame to accent the colorful flower beds and decorative trees that you have selected to display. Typically, the most practical and durable hardscapes are built from heavy materials such as concrete, stone and wood. In addition to the appearance, these beautiful landscapes can be an outdoor oasis of sorts allowing employees to take a lunch break outdoors and perhaps take a brief walk around the property. If the property is a cemetery, hotel, hospital or retail shopping center, the same benefits will exist for customers or hospital patients. Pugh's Earthworks services these types of businesses. Safety - The best design of a hardscape will be well thought out in terms of the safety it provides to pedestrians. The Pugh's Earthworks technicians will carefully draft and review with our Commercial Property client what we feel makes the most practical sense for your property. Realizing that many people from employees, customers, vendors, delivery trucks etc.  will be traversing the property, we want to create a safe environment. Increase Property Value - Protecting and increasing the real estate value of a commercial property is always a major goal. Pugh's Earthworks knows this and therefore in the materials we use to create lovely hardscapes, we are careful to select good quality materials that also provide functionality. For example, we can construct natural brick, stone, interlocking pavers, flagstone cement, foot paths, and sidewalks. Then for purposes of preventing ground erosion and water conservation, we build retaining walls made of stacked stone, brick, or other materials. We also can turn these retaining walls into a natural seating area if our customer desires. Adding outdoor fireplaces is also a great feature. These allow people to enjoy the outdoors during the winter months.

Keeping your commercial landscape attractive during the cold winter months can be a challenge and Pugh’s Earthworks has the answers

Pugh's Earthworks The winter season can present challenges with keeping your commercial property looking attractive. Of course appearance is important for customer and employee image. The professional and certified landscape technicians at Pugh's Earthworks are very educated and skilled at keeping landscapes looking pristine during the challenges presented by all seasons. Depending on what part of the country you live in, winters can be mild, medium or severe. The markets that Pugh's Earthworks serves tend to be in the medium category which does experience cold and snowy conditions. Those markets are Memphis, Tennessee which is headquarters plus offices in Nashville, Jackson TN, Southaven MS and Little Rock AR. Our firm provides monthly grounds maintenance services for commercial clients in these markets. Below are a few things that can be done to help to beautify your commercial landscape during the harsh winter months: Planting Evergreen Trees can enhance the overall appearance of your commercial landscape. In the dead of winter when there is little color to break up the mundane, Evergreens can add that spark of color that is pleasing to the eye. 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. However, by keeping your bird feeders full of food and using heated dog bowls for water, birds will be sure to stop by and add a sense of life to the dead of winter. Adding attractive lighting will help to amplify the beauty of your landscaping especially since there is less sunlight during the winter months. Many commercial businesses add holiday lighting to their building(s) as well. Repurposing existing decorations like flower pots, barrels, bird baths etc. will help as well. By planting annuals or using pieces of sculpture in these existing decorations it will add to their aesthetic value during the winter months. The experts at Pugh's Earthworks would be honored to earn your business as a permanent commercial landscape client.

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville.

Our monthly services include landscape design and maintenance, customized to your needs, budget, and seasonal situation. With offices in Memphis, Nashville, Jackson TN, Little Rock and Southaven MS, Pugh's Earthworks specializes in all aspects of commercial landscaping. One of the many elements of landscaping involves the important design and building of Hardscapes. Depending on the commercial property type, Hardscapes can be crafted to stay with the architecture of that building. For example if it is a very modern structure, concrete and stone may be more appropriate. Where as an older building may call for more traditional Hardscaping created from wood. Each phase of commercial landscaping plays a valuable role in the over all aesthetic, environmental and value of the commercial property. Hardscaping is one of those critical elements. So what are some of the important parts Hardscaping plays in the property design. Below are a few of those: Direction and Safety - A properly designed walkway serves to direct people to stay on the path. Often there are areas where you do not want foot traffic so by creating an attractive and safe pathway, typically people will use it as opposed to walking across the grass or other Soft Scaping. In addition, a properly designed pathway can keep employees, vendors and customers from falling and injuring themselves. Better Employee Interaction - During times of great outdoor weather, employees can enjoy some much needed change of scenery from the breakroom. A beautiful outdoor design with a nice patio, benches and tables can be a place where employees can gather for lunch. The fresh air and sunshine makes for a more comforting and interactive environment. Happier employees that enjoy working together as a team naturally leads to better productivity. Improved Property Utilization - Properties can vary in terms of sunlight verses shade or water collection verses dryness. Hardscapes will embrace the differences and make better use of the overall property. Increased Value - Hardscaping can add value to your commercial property by displaying creative and functional design. Commercial property owners take pride in their property and beautiful hardscapes. Pugh's Earthworks professional landscape designers create some of most amazing hardscapes in the industry. Property Appearance - A beautifully designed hardscape will leave visitors with the impression that you have a first class operation. You do not want people to visit the property and their first impression to be that you do not invest in the overall appearance and environmental effectiveness.   About Pugh's Earthworks The success story of Pugh's Earthworks is special.
