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 [...]

Contact Pugh’s Earthworks for Commercial Property Flower Bed Design

Pugh's Earthworks Commercial Property Flower Bed Design   Flower beds provide a beautiful and eye-catching feature to any commercial or residential garden. With a burst of color, these beautiful floral displays can provide enjoyment the entire year-round. However, flowers tend to provide that beauty on a seasonal basis. Even though it is winter, it is still a good time to consider Commercial Property Flower Bed Design. Hiring the professionals at Pugh's Earthworks is the best place to start. Our team will get to work designing the flower beds for property functionality and appearance. The first step is to clean out the existing flower bed.  Remove old perennials, weeds, and any debris. Think of it as a clean slate so you can start again with seasonal blooms. This may be a good time to change the shape of your flower bed. Rather than going with that traditional rectangular look, why not add some curves to it by drawing out new lines with the soil? Now, it's time to add new soil to your flower bed. Dig up rocks, roots, and any debris before putting a layer of garden-specific soil. It should be about six inches deep. You can also add compost and leaf mold. This will boost soil nutrition. Let your flower bed settle for 30 to 60 days before planting. Work with your local garden center on the ideal flowers for this time of year. Once you have an idea of what works, then you can select the colors and varieties to use that will fit your space and garden style. This is where you can be creative. As you plant the flowers in the bed, be sure to add enough water to make puddles under each flower. Add a thin layer of mulch. This will help prevent weeds and allow the soil to retain moisture even during the hot summer ahead. Commercial Property Flower Bed Design In addition, the above items are things the Pugh's Earthworks team will deal with. Furthermore, below are some broad range considerations for your property that we can discuss with you. Brand Recognition is something that every company focuses on. It makes sense that when you are planting flowers, matching those colors to your company logo would be beneficial. Pugh's Earthworks will know the best plants and flowers to plant so as to accomplish this. Matching the Architecture of your building is important. After all, you have made a huge investment in the office complex. It only makes sense to create a flower bed that compliments your property. Again, the professionals at Pugh's Earthworks will know the exact combination of flowers and the style of the flower bed needed. We will use Native plants that flourish in the soil and climate of the region. Flower Beds can also assist with directing customers. Properly positioned to enhance signage will help to keep customers on the right path. In conclusion, Flower Beds that are properly designed and maintained will enhance your property's value and demonstrate your company's commitment to [...]

Adjust your landscape appearance for the season with the help of the experts at Pugh’s Earthworks

Pugh's Earthworks   Every season brings different weather conditions that impact your commercial landscape. That is why it makes sense to regularly adjust your commercial landscape to fit the season. This creates a year-round beautiful and welcoming look to your commercial landscape. The Pugh's Earthworks certified landscape technicians are educated on exactly what types of plants are acclimated to each of our four seasons. By rotating the plants that are used in commercial landscaping, properties are kept attractive. This strategy is part of the service provided by Pugh's Earthworks. Absent the use of a skilled company like Pugh's Earthworks, year-round commercial landscaping techniques which involves selecting trees and shrubs, can be overwhelming. Since spring is the next season coming up, let's start there. After a drab, cold winter, you will want to show some color in your commercial landscape. Look for the earliest-blooming shrubs, trees, and flowers to get ready to plant. You'll most likely start enjoying various colors by mid-spring. And, to carry on your staggered planting strategy, summer should consist of trees and shrubs that are heartier and can withstand the heat and humidity of the season. From there, fall offers a lot of opportunity for colorful foliage and deep colors across shrubs and trees. When winter arrives again, most of the plants and trees will go into hibernation, so be prepared to focus on colors like white, brown, and gray for a few months with the exception of the seasonal evergreen tree. Of course it is not just the plants and trees that are of concern. There is also your year-round commercial lawn care to consider. This area of your landscape should also have a strategy to keep it inviting throughout each season. With spring nearly here, it's time to sharpen those lawnmower blades and clean up all the debris. Keep an eye out for weeds and begin fertilizing. From there, each season will involve trimming, watering, and feeding until the lawn goes dormant again in winter. Below are some of the typical landscape plants and trees used at different times each year: Fall - In the fall, the key element that makes a beautiful and colorful landscape is the changing foliage. Two of the all time favorites for bright fall foliage are the Maple Tree and Sumac Shrub. Winter - This is probably the most challenging season. Plants that add color are Evergreen Trees and Shrubs. Another option for color is the Red Osier Dogwood. Spring - After the long gray Winter season, people are clamoring for colorful plants and blooms. There is a long list of those but for early color the Forsythia, Lilac and Mountain Laurel. Summer - Common are the Crepe Myrtle, Rose of Sharon and Hydrangea Shrubs. And, if you need expert and professional help making your commercial landscape fit with the season, then you should contact us today at Pugh's Earthworks to learn more about our commercial landscaping design and maintenance packages.

Hire Pugh’s Earthworks for year round health maintenance of your commercial property

Pugh's Earthworks The weather is slowly starting to cool. It will not be too much longer and the leaves will be turning color and falling to to ground. The professional landscaping services provided by Pugh's Earthworks are a year round contract. Every season requires strategic processes to ensure that commercial landscapes remain healthy and vibrant. One process that is vital is the removal of leaves that fall. Absent the services of a professional landscaping firm, this can be a monumental task. Leaves falling on the ground are a message that fall has arrived. And, while the colors are beautiful and the piles of leaves are fun to jump on, they really do have to find somewhere else to live beside the lawn.  Leaves are a common part of lawn maintenance. There are many reasons why you should remove the leaves from the lawn and methods for doing so: It is much healthier for your lawn. This is because if you allow the leaves to pile up on your lawn, they block the sunlight, water, and nutrients from reaching the root system and helping feed your lawn. The lawn needs to breathe but it can't do that if it is covered in leaves. The leaves can even block new grass blades. These leaves may also invite pests and diseases in that are difficult to get rid of. This can lead to mold, brown patches, and lots of insets. Also, it improves the lawn's overall appearance. Lastly, regularly removing the leaves makes for less work than letting them all pile up over time. There are many ways to remove the leaves from your lawn. The first way is to rake them off the lawn. This approach tends to get most leaves that have to be bagged up and removed. It is very labor-intensive. The second is to use a leaf blower, which does the job quickly but is noisy. However, as long as you select a good time to do it, such as mid-day, most people have become accustomed to the sound. Alternatively, you can use a mulching mower that shreds the leaves and turns them into fertilizer. Adding a bag to this mower allows you to collect everything and put it in your compost bin if you have one. Lastly, consider assistance from a professional lawn care maintenance company like Pugh's Earthworks who can take care of leaves, mowing, and fertilizing so you can just enjoy how it looks.

As you are able, try to keep plant containers moist and water the lawn as restrictions allow. Remove old dried blooms from flowers or otherwise called deadheading. By getting rid of the dead and dried blooms you are making way for new grow and plus making the flower beds look more well keep. The same holds true for trees and shrubs. Late summer is a good time for light pruning of dead limbs or over growth. Cleaning of tools is important also so that you do not spread any fungus or other disease from trimming affected trees and shrubs. Late summer can be a great time to re-seed any bare spots in the lawn that have appearing during the hot temperatures of summer. There is a best practice of using the proper amount of sand, fertilizer and seed. A trained landscape technician like those at Pugh's Earthworks will know that proper method. This time of year is perfect for starting to evaluate your landscaping and decide which fall flower bulbs you want to plant in order to add fall color to your flower beds.

Pugh’s Earthworks knows that proper Summer watering is critical for the health of Commercial Landscapes

Pugh's Earthworks In some parts of the US, this summer has brought more rain than normal and in other parts more drought than anticipated. Water is such a critical element for life and true for plants as well. However, water not applied in proper quantity or at the wrong time a day can often create more problems. Hiring the professional and certified commercial landscape technicians at Pugh's Earthworks will ensure that your commercial property receives the exact formula of water application to maximize grow and overall health. As the temperatures continue to soar, it's important to have a regular summer watering schedule for your lawn to ensure it can thrive and grow throughout the year. Here are some tips on how to water your lawn during the summer season: You don't need to water your lawn every day in the summer despite thinking it will help in the hot weather. What happens is that the lawn gets over-watered and starts to die. Get to know the soil properties of the area you live in. This tells you a lot about how to water your lawn in the summer and throughout the year. This is because water tends to penetrate soils differently. For example, it is more likely to penetrate sandy or loose soil than clay-based soil.  The water should penetrate six to eight inches below the ground surface. Check your overall irrigation system for your lawn to identify any places where water is not regularly reaching that portion of your lawn. Any dry spots will tell you where you need to make changes to your irrigation. Think about what type of grass you have in your lawn as this will also tell you more about how to water it. For example, Tall Fescue has a deep root system. This means it has the highest drought tolerance of all cool-season turf types. Then, Kentucky Bluegrass goes dormant during a drought. Warm-season grasses, which include Zoysia, St. Augustine, Bermuda, and Centipede, tend to thrive in warm conditions. They have a deep root system and require approximately 20% less water than cool-season lawn grasses. The age of your lawn is also an important consideration for determining irrigation frequency. While all lawns need consistent moisture, you need to proceed with caution on newly-planted lawns. Do not rely on rainfall. Instead, you'll need to provide supplemental irrigation during the first year of growth to ensure it develops that deep root system. Focus your watering times on early morning or late afternoon/evening when the sun is not scorching the grass or adding to the water evaporation. As a commercial landscape and maintenance company that is focused on helping local businesses enjoy healthy, beautiful outdoor spaces, we are here to help with your lawn care needs. Contact us, Pugh's Earthworks today and we'll keep your lawn looking lush and green throughout all seasons. Pugh's Earthworks Big Company Strength and Small Company Values!
