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.

Pugh’s Earthworks is a Premier, Reliable and Trusted Commercial Landscaping Firm

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks is a premier, reliable and trusted Commercial Landscaping Firm in the Mid- South. Our major markets include Memphis, Nashville, Jackson TN, Littlerock and Southaven MS. We provide a wide range of Commercial Landscaping services all backed by our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.

We have customers with all types of landscapes and terrains. 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.

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 [...]

If you are touting sustainability and environmental activities, then your landscape needs to show that. Or, if your business offers relaxation, then create a Zen-like space. Second, think about how people will engage with your business and how you can offer them spaces to stay longer. This is especially important if you are a retail business. Adding amenities like benches, chairs, tables, and other outdoor spaces that invite them to remain on your property. Commercial Landscape Design Next, you will need to think about where and how people approach your business. Use natural objects like trees and shrubs to line the path that takes them straight to your company's front door. Then, it is important to create an attractive space with your landscape that is tidy, offers shade, or provides a refreshing feel. It will make people want to come there rather than turn them away. Finally, consider your architecture and how your commercial landscape should coordinate with that look. You will need to look at color, texture, shape, and style.

David is a Senior Corporate Account Executive for FedEx Services and I am an Executive Assistant to the President and Chief Executive Officer of FedEx Express and as one may assume, our expectations and requirements are of a high standard. “In September 2005, the Sterling Square Board members unanimously selected Pugh’s Lawn Service (now Pugh’s Earthworks) to be our lawn service provider (this was based on observance of their quality work on other properties). Pugh’s Earthworks is an exceptional, very organized company that has produced high quality results for us. Pugh’s began servicing our subdivision when the overall grounds were approaching poor conditions. We had several dead trees, many weeds in our grass, and the beds in the common areas and homes were severely neglected. We were amazed how quickly Pugh’s was able to turn our negative situation into a remarkable transformation. Now our subdivision looks first class and our homeowners are very proud they live in Sterling Square. In fact, I believe the outstanding appearance of our subdivision has helped to ‘promote’ the selling of some of our homes recently. New buyers have literally made the comment of amazement in the landscapes’ inviting appearance! “In addition, we have been very pleased with Casey Hesser, Dave McDaniel, and Steve Williamson concerning the resolution of our breezeway drainage problems, replacement of dead trees and azaleas, and sprinkler system problems, superb fertilizing results on our grassy regions and (thank God) our flower beds are now worth boasting about. Specifically, these three gentlemen are very professional in their capacities and are always prompt in returning our association’s phone calls. In addition, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Pugh’s ‘Color Coordinator’ Julie Issacs for her exceptional forte in flower plantings. She has been very accommodation and has been very receptive to new ideas the board has requested, while guiding us along the way. “We are thankful for Pugh’s partnering with Sterling Square and look forward to an extended relationship for many years to come. We are very happy to discuss any inquiries, in detail, regarding our (now 14 month) relationship with Pugh’s Landscape and invite your call.” David and Karen Smith, Building and Grounds Sterling Square, Collierville TN   Pugh's Earthworks Landscaping Service   Pugh's Earthworks provides landscaping and lawn maintenance programs for HOA (homeowners associations) and COA (condominium associations).
