Trust all of your commercial landscape tree planting to the professionals at Pugh’s Earthworks

Pugh's Earthworks Planting trees is always a major part of creating an attractive commercial landscape. However, if trees are not planted correctly, problems may arise. Selection of the proper tree is critical as you may want shade trees or you may want decorative trees or both. The certified landscape professionals at Pugh's Earthworks are trained on all facets of proper tree planting. It is pretty common knowledge that trees like other certain shrubs and grass are dormant during the winter. This is when the root growing season is at its best. Conversely in the summer, the foliage above ground is in full growth mode. Thus planting trees during the fall or early spring makes for a healthier tree and one that can withstand the high summer heat. Though you may want to plant the whole year round to keep your landscape looking beautiful, the weather is always a factor to consider that may stop you from doing so. That is because temperature extremes like severely cold or extremely hot are difficult for a new planting to handle. After all, they are just trying to take root and may be in shock with their new surroundings. Yes, plants, trees, and shrubs can undergo stress when placed in extreme conditions like excessive heat that occurs in the middle of summer. The heat can interfere with proper root development, causing the trees and shrubs to die. While you should avoid it, there are some ways to still do some planting in the middle of summer. First, do your planting in the evening and then water new plants after planting. You can also opt to do the planting on cloudy days. Then, use water bags and irrigation systems to ensure they have enough water so their roots can thrive even in the heat. The better times to plant trees and shrubs are early fall, late spring, and early summer. So, the next time to consider is early fall for your planting goals. It's a good idea to plant trees when they are dormant. Also, soak the shrub or tree in its pot before removing it to plant as this helps reduce the risk of damaging its tender roots. Provide good soil by adding a compost mixture and mulch after planting the tree or shrub. It can be challenging to plant trees and shrubs in a way that gives them a chance to grow and thrive. That is why we are here to help.  Contact us today to learn more about our planting, landscaping, and garden maintenance services.

Tennessee Department of Agriculture Chartered/Licensed Mississippi Bureau of Plant Industry licensed Arkansas State Plant Board Licensed Landscape Industry Certified Below is a partial excerpt of EPA comments found on the Tennessee Department of Agriculture website. Clearly there are many factors to consider when applying chemicals. "The ESA is intended to protect and promote the recovery of species that are in danger of becoming extinct. Threats to a species from habitat destruction, pollution, over-harvesting, disease, predation and other natural or man-made factors must be reviewed and evaluated before an animal or plant can be placed on the federal endangered or threatened species list. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Marine Fisheries Service, collectively known as the Services, administer the ESA. However, the ESA requires that all federal agencies, including EPA, make sure that any action they authorize, fund or carry out won’t jeopardize the existence of listed species or “destroy or adversely modify” any designated critical habitat for that species. The role EPA has in implementing the ESA is to ensure that the use of pesticides is not likely to jeopardize listed species or destroy or adversely modify their critical habitat when we register pesticides. When EPA determines that use limitations are necessary to ensure that legal use of a pesticide will not harm listed species or their critical habitat, we may seek to change the terms of the pesticide application to establish either generic or geographically specific pesticide use limitations. When geographically specific use limitations are necessary, Bulletins are developed to put the necessary mitigations into place. These mitigations are specific to the area(s) where the species is exposed to the pesticide(s) in question. Pesticide labels refer the pesticide user to Bulletins Live! Two contains enforceable use limitations for a pesticide to ensure its use will not jeopardize the continued existence of a listed species or adversely modify designated critical habitat. Bulletins show: The name of the pesticide active ingredient(s) and/or product(s), depending on what the user searches for, with pesticide limitations that may affect the listed species, The geographically specific pesticide use limitation(s) necessary to protect listed species or designated critical [...]

Every job we do is backed by our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. Lawns need to be watered regularly in Summer and the experts at Pugh's Earthworks will help you analyze the process! Checking the condition of the lawn Summer Lawn Watering Most lawn experts and research indicates that turf grasses need an estimated 1 inch of water per week to stay healthy and green. Although occasionally if the summer heat is too intense you may have to let the lawn go into an almost dormant state. In order to have a strong lawn you need to encourage deep root growth. In addition we all need to be aware of water conservation. It is a precious resource to be used wisely. Below are some tips that experts recommend. When to water - Signs of footprints and a darker color in the lawn are typically signs of early drought stress. Water infrequently - When you water make sure the watering is deep down to the roots. This creates a deep root growth pattern and encourages less weed growth. Water early in the day - If you water in the heat of the day your water will evaporate. If you water at night it can create fungal growth and lawn damage. Spread the water evenly - Try to avoid flooding some spots while missing the water on others. Water conservation awareness -  Mowing the lawn higher, avoiding excess nitrogen fertilizer, limiting foot traffic, discontinuing pesticides and careful placement of the sprinklers so as not to waste water on the driveway or street are all things that can help to conserve water. Avoid over-watering - As the water is absorbed monitor your watering to ensure there are no areas of standing water afterwards. Monitor rainfall - Watch the weather forecasts. If rain is expected do not water the lawn.

With our extensive experience, we have many tips for maintaining HOA/COA landscapes throughout alll seasons, including winter, which, in Tennessee, can mean snow and ice. Winter Planting and Maintenance Let's start with any plans for planting during the winter. You don't have to do much when it comes to winter landscaping around your HOA. Just having a few evergreens and shrubs with berries can add interest and color. Also, trees with colorful and textured bark may provide a unique look. It's also good to continually remove any fallen leaves, branches, or other debris. Doing so will provide an attractive look for your community. Plus, it will also reduce rodents and other critters that you may not want to have lurking around your community. Snow and Ice Removal You want to make sure that common area paths and sidewalks remain clear for residents as well as have a plan for salting roads to minimize the risk of ice and black ice. Hardscapes and Amenities Maintenance Part of caring for the HOA/COA landscape involves keeping benches, arbors, playground equipment, and other amenities free of snow and ice as well as maintain them up to a usable standard. A fresh coat of paint or stain can add brightness on a dreary winter day. Walkway lighting also can cheer up areas and help residents by lighting the way for them.
