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.

Like all seasons a certified landscape technician will be trained on all the appropriate steps to take for landscape protection and health. Pugh's Earthworks has the best technicians in the industry and will ensure that your commercial property is ready to make the jump from summer heat to cooler fall temperatures. Here are some tips for late summer landscape care: Water as you are able - Some parts of the country are in a severe drought. This makes watering problematic when watering is being restricted. 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. Lawn insects that can damage your yard have in some cases become well established over the warm summer months. Now is the time to attack insects like grub worms and other grass eating bugs. Pugh's Earthworks is trained in the process of choosing and safely applying the right chemicals to reduce the number of these pests that damage your lawn. This is the time of year for commercial property owners to seek the advice and service of a professional landscaping company like Pugh's Earthworks.

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!

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks is a premier landscaping company that will enhance the appearance and value of your commercial property! All commercial property owners want their property to generate revenue. Otherwise the investment is not of value. Hiring a professional and highly experienced company like Pugh's Earthworks ensures that you are headed the right direction for covering the main goals of proper landscape design and maintenance. A few of the major objectives for any property all below: Creates an attractive look that matches your brand - First impressions are everything as a prospect drives up to your business. Whether it is in a retail center, office building, or standalone property, it has to look nice and well-maintained. That's because how it looks provides an impression of what the business might be like. You want them to stop, park, and come in and do business with you rather than keep on driving. A commercial landscape company knows how to create an inviting look to draw customers in. Helps you become an eco-friendly business - You may not know how to change your landscape so it uses less water or takes advantage of eco-friendly practices. That's when it makes sense to leave it to the commercial landscape professional who understands how to use native plants and design an eco-friendly landscape that contributes to the environment rather than takes away precious natural resources. Increases productivity - You can focus more on your business and less on the time-consuming activity of taking care of your landscape. Plus, will be inspired and motivated by the attractive landscape to get more done. Working with a commercial  landscape design professional, you can also add things like a patio and outdoor seating to encourage employees to go outside and enjoy their breaks, so they come back refreshed and ready to work. They may even enjoy working outside when weather permits and get more done by doing so. Raises commercial property value - Similar to a residential property, the more attractive your commercial property is the more valuable it becomes should you go to sell it, lease it, or take out a loan. A commercial landscape company can help you add features like lighting, hardscape, and other features that do the most to raise value. Attracts more customers - A professional commercial landscaping company can help you attract more customers that are drawn to your business just from the inviting fountain, lighting, seating, and array of flowers, greenery, and even lawn. This attractive and natural look is a way to draw people in who might have otherwise continued to walk on by.
