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.

Get ahead of the summer heat and hire the professionals at Pugh’s Earthworks to design and install your sprinkler system

Pugh's Earthworks The certified landscape professionals at Pugh's Earthworks will help any commercial property owner with an optimum sprinkler system design. After careful review of the terrain, soil conditions, types of grass planted and climate for the region, you will be assured that during the periods of critical watering, your sprinkler system will properly handle the job. Consultation with our customers is invaluable and we want to be sure that we answer all questions before and after installation. Customers may also visit our Q&A link on our website for fast and accurate answers to all types of Commercial Landscape questions. Below is an example of some Q&A regarding sprinkler systems: Q: How will I benefit from an in-ground sprinkler system? A: Since hand watering is done on a random basis, and at irregular intervals, an automatic sprinkler system will actually, in most cases, use less water. It will also disperse the water at an even rate, and for a predetermined amount of time. This allows you to water sunny and shady areas for different periods of time, and to water when it is most efficient. One obvious benefit is the ability to continue a watering program while you are away on vacation, etc. Q: How long does a system take to put in? A: It would depend on the area that is trying to be covered. An average size lawn (@15,000 sq. ft.) can usually be done in one full day, depending on the situation. A large country lawn can take anywhere from two to four days. On average, we spend one to two days on a job. Q: What is a back flow device, and why do I need one on my sprinkler system? A: A back flow device is generally a brass assembly that will prevent any water from the sprinkler system from getting into the drinking water supply, and are required by all municipalities. There are many different types of these, and each individual municipality has differing requirements for the installation. Q: What type of maintenance does the system require? A: All systems need to be winterized at the end of the season. This is done by attaching an air hose to a fitting on the water line, and blowing all of the water out of the system. Most people that we install systems for simply turn it back on in the springtime themselves. We do offer the service of opening systems for the season. The quality of the products used initially, and of the overall installation, play an important part in the long term service of the system. The better the products and installation, the less trouble you should expect in the future.   Sprinkler Installation About Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville.

Tree Pruning for Spring Preparation Spring Landscape Preparation Winter came with a vengeance in many parts of the country.

The experts at Pugh's Earthworks have the training to trim properly.

Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville. We have five commercial landscape service operations in three states, including landscapes and service lawns and landscaping in Little Rock, Arkansas. Our services include landscape design, landscape and lawn maintenance, pest control, and seasonal services like snow and ice removal. As part of the regular maintenance we provide businesses and residences, it is important to regularly fertilize and feed a lawn and surrounding landscape with fertilizer. Doing so in the spring provides a way to help strengthen roots and promote essential growth for grass, shrubs, and more. With the spring season just starting, it's a critical time to get fertilizing done. This is because grasses start putting their energy into root development. It's a good time to give grass a helping hand. But, you don't want to overdo the fertilizing because grass and plants could use the help throughout the season to sustain that same level of energy to get all the growing they need to get done. Therefore, we tend to do more fertilizing during the mid to late spring. We adhere to a strict process for fertilizing your lawn because we know this optimizes results while minimizing any damage that fertilizing mistakes can cause. Our philosophies to veer on the side of less fertilizer than too [...]

In total, it costs them about $2,000 annually. “You open up your closet and you see your work stuff and the stuff you’re going to wear on the weekend. Why can’t we intersect the two things and be really proud of (your company)?” Joseph Stark, [...]

Jackson MS Is Hot & Dry This Summer

Pugh's Earthworks has a thriving office in Jackson, Mississippi. Apartments, cemeteries, hospitals and retail centers are some of the properties that Pugh's maintains. The challenge this season is unusually dry and hot conditions. Drought conditions have led to a burn ban in certain parts of Mississippi. Stress from the drought can take a toll on shrubs, turf and trees. In extreme dry conditions, turf will go into a dormant phase. Jeff Estridge is the manager of Pugh's Jackson office. He's been paying close attention to his properties in these challenging dry conditions. Dawson McCown, Regional Operations Manager, adds an additional layer of inspection with regular visits to all the properties. Pictured below is one of the beautiful properties Pugh's maintains in Jackson along with Jeff and Dawson as they discuss property conditions.
