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.

Pugh's Earthworks creates beautiful landscapes that can increase healing and well being!   Beautiful Hospital Landscaping Landscaping Health Benefits Beyond the obvious benefits of landscaping being aesthetically pleasing to the eye and helpful for the property value, there are studies showing that nicely landscaped hospital gardens have healing benefits for patients and staff. The calming effects of natural views can reduce stress and speed up the process of healing. A study conducted by a research team by the name of Cooper-Marcus and Barnes in the late 90's showed measurable benefits to both patients and staff. Their study showed that the hospital staff members were much happier and more productive when they had the ability to go outside and unwind. In addition, patients they interviewed said that the hospital gardens created a welcomed change from the stress of treatments and fear of illness. For decades it has been evident that the stresses endured by healthcare workers can be overwhelming. Extremely long hours, difficultly and fatigue caused by shift changes, lack of control or authority over decisions and emotional demands of the job have taken a toll. These conditions have in some cases lowered job satisfaction which has the domino effect of increasing absenteeism or turnover.  These consequences obviously have an effect on the care patients may receive. Studies have shown that hospital workers can find peace and tranquility by escaping to an outside hospital garden. This magnifies the need for landscaping expertise. Professional landscaping adds all of the necessary elements that make a garden one of splendor. Nature has a way of letting us escape to a world of calm and serenity. It is easy to recognize that a healthcare worked who is allowed the time to meditate and escape from a demanding profession can ultimately benefit those patients in their care. It also lowers the employment costs for hospitals as it takes time and money to train new employees. For the patients and their families, a beautifully designed and landscaped hospital garden has been shown to [...]
