We Efficiently Maintain Property Entrance Container Gardens

Pugh's Earthworks Property Entrance Container Gardens make a lovely addition around HOA or Commercial Property entrances and in places where a little greenery is needed to soften and decorate. Bedding plants including annuals, perennials, small shrubs and ornamental trees make excellent mixes for container gardening. A good rule of thumb is to have a tall plant in the center and draping flora around the edges. Fill in other areas with a combination of blooming and green plants keeping in mind not to over crowd the planter and drown out some of the mix. Pugh's Earthworks creates and maintains these container gardens on some of our properties. Benefits of Property Entrance Container Gardens Container gardens at a property entrance offer numerous benefits that make them a popular landscaping choice. Unlike in-ground plantings, they can be moved and changed with the seasons or property owners' preferences, providing versatility and customization options. They allow owners to add their unique style and personality to greet guests with beautiful blooms and foliage. Curb appeal is one of the most noticeable advantages of using containers by the front door or walkway. The pops of color and texture instantly increase visual interest and make a great first impression. Studies show people value curb appeal, as it implies care has been put into the property. Container plantings are an easy way to spruce up the entry without major landscaping work. Container gardens are also one of the lowest maintenance ways to add garden interest at an entrance. The enclosed soil environment helps retain moisture longer than in the ground, reducing watering needs. Containers prevent weeds and grass from taking root like in-ground beds. There is no digging or soil amendment required. The ability to move containers allows for optimal sun exposure. For those without time for high-maintenance beds and borders, entrance container gardens are an ideal solution. The versatility and customization possible with entrance container gardens make them a great choice for expressing owners' personal styles. Mixing colors, shapes and textures allows for endless design options. Containers can be changed seasonally or rearranged anytime to keep the entryway looking fresh and inviting. They provide a simple, affordable way to try out new looks before committing to permanent in-ground plantings. For those wanting to quickly update their home's entrance, container gardens are the perfect flexible and creative solution. Choosing the Right Location When placing your property entrance container garden, consider visibility and access. Choose a spot that can be easily seen from the street to create curb appeal. Near the front entrance and walkways is ideal so it is one of the first things people notice when approaching your HOA or Business Property. Sunlight exposure is another key factor for container garden placement. Most flowering plants and vegetables need at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Observe how the sunlight hits different areas of your property during the day before deciding where to position your containers. South or west facing spots are best. If needed, you can [...]

Commercial HOA Landscaping is Just One of the Many Great Services We Provide!

Pugh's Earthworks A well-maintained lawn and garden are a great way to show your customers and community that you care about the quality of life in your area. Pugh's Earthworks is expert at Commercial Landscaping, and we can help! Our professional Commercial HOA Landscaping services will make sure your backyard or front yard looks its best. HOA Landscaping Benefits As a business owner, you know that the most visible part of your property is its landscaping. Whether it is an apartment complex or office park, people will judge your company by what they see outside. Landscaping can help increase visibility for your business and attract new clients through: Increased foot traffic due to attractive aesthetics (and sometimes even smells). This can lead directly to more sales or leads as people walk through the area on their way somewhere else. Improved curb appeal that makes potential customers feel more comfortable entering the building or visiting the website online--or both! Increased real estate value for your property. This can help you sell or lease it out if you decide to move on from the space and make a profit! HOA Landscaping Certification HOA Landscaping Certification is a good way to show your customers that you are a professional, and it can also help you win more business. It is a great way to prove that you know what you are doing when it comes to landscaping, which will make clients feel more confident in hiring someone like yourself. Pugh's Earthwork is a Certified Commercial Landscaping Company. If there is one thing that we have learned from our years as a commercial HOA landscaper, it is that everyone wants something different out of their lawn care service providers. Some people want an eye-catching design; others just want their grass cut on time every week without fail; still others may be looking for something more complex like seasonal color changes or maintenance services such as fertilizing and trimming hedges throughout the year (or even tree removal). Whatever their needs happen to be--and whether those needs change over time--you need not worry because there are plenty of ways for businesses like yours (and even homeowners) alike who specialize in providing lawn care services such as mowing/trimming/weeding etc... HOA Landscaping benefits include: Increased property values and reduced maintenance costs. In a recent study, homebuyers were asked what they value most in a home. The top response was "good schools" followed by "low crime rate," and then "nice landscaping." Homeowners with well-maintained lawns, in well-maintained neighborhoods, are likely to sell their houses for higher prices than those whose yards are neglected or poorly maintained. HOA Landscaping also saves homeowners money by using one company throughout the entire neighborhood instead of having each homeowner hire separate lawn companies for each house. Pugh's Earthworks HOA Lawn Maintenance Maintain the lawns on a regular basis. Mower blades should be at least 3 inches off the ground, and you should cut your grass when it is dry. Always mow in the [...]

We are a Premiere Mid-South Commercial Landscaping Company and Provide Free Estimates for Snow and Ice Removal!

Pugh's Earthworks Snow and Ice Removal is one of the most important services for commercial properties. Without it, you risk losing customers and even incurring damage to your building. Fortunately, Pugh's Earthworks is not only the premiere Mid-South Commercial Landscaping Company, but they also provide snow and ice services. Here are some things to consider when hiring a company: Commercial property snow removal Commercial property snow removal is a service that many companies provide. Unlike Pugh's Earthworks, not many landscape companies offer it. When heavy snow is present, snow removal companies use heavy machinery to remove the snow from your commercial property, including entrances, exits and parking lots. This is very important during the winter months so that you and your customers can safely arrive and leave. Commercial property ice removal You may be wondering what the best way to remove ice is. There are several techniques, one including using a scraper or snow shovel to remove any excess snow and ice from the surface of your commercial property. If you have an area with a lot of ice on it, use heat lamps or other methods of melting the ice before attempting to remove it manually. Another preferred method to treat ice is to wait and throw ice melt out until the ground starts freezing over. This can be done through professional snow/ice services such as those offered by Pugh's Earthworks. Snow removal service Snow removal services are a smart investment for commercial property owners. Snow removal companies have the equipment, experience, and manpower to get your commercial property areas cleared of snow and ice as soon as it starts. If you decide that hiring a commercial property snow removal company is right for your situation, do some research to make sure they have experience working on large areas like parks and parking lots. These types of properties typically require special equipment not found in residential settings (such as heaters). Ice Removal Service Ice removal is the process of removing ice from surfaces, such as sidewalks, parking lots, and streets. Ice can be very dangerous and cause serious accidents if not treated properly. The equipment used for ice removal varies depending on where you live (how often your area gets snow) and the size of the area to be serviced. Here are some examples of items used to remove snow: Shovels - Shovels are used for moving small to moderate amounts of snow or ice away from walkways and entrances, basically anywhere someone might walk. It is wise to keep one or two spare shovels around in case the one you are using breaks. Equipment - If you choose to hire a professional company, make sure that they have experience safely operating snow removal equipment and working in cold temperatures. Most companies have snow plowing equipment that is only used during heavy snow or when trying to service a large area. The dangers of property ice Ice, if not dealt with properly, can cause serious injury. Slippery surfaces are [...]

Hire Us Today to Perform Important Tree Limbing Service!

Pugh's Earthworks Tree trimming is a process that involves removing branches from the trunk of a tree. It is done to keep trees healthy and prevent them from causing damage to property or other landscaping features around your home. Trees can grow far larger than they need to if they are not properly trimmed, which can cause them to break under their own weight or even fall over completely. Pugh's Earthworks is experienced in all aspects of Commercial Landscaping including Tree Limbing Service. Trees are a big part of our landscape. They provide shade, beauty and windbreaks for your property. Trees need to be planted in the right place and cared for properly so they will grow up to be healthy and strong trees that are safe for people and other living things around them Your first step is to make sure the tree will fit in its intended location. Trees need room to grow and mature, so it is important to measure the size of your yard or garden before you plant. Measure how far apart you want each tree to be planted and add at least five feet (1.5 meters) between trees with mature canopies or 15 feet (4.5 meters) between trees with young canopies. Unfortunately, trees may grow too big for the space they are in, which can cause problems. If a tree is too tall or wide for its space, it can block light from other plants and trees. This makes it hard for them to grow properly--and you will have less food for yourself! If the wind blows hard enough, this could break branches or even topple your whole tree over. If a tree is growing too close to your house or shed, it could cause damage if it falls. You will also have trouble getting around in your yard if there are many large trees growing nearby. Limbing trees can help to reduce the risk of damage to other plants or trees. The branches may block light from other trees or plants, or they could be so heavy that they break under the weight of snow. Limbing is also beneficial for preventing property damage caused by falling branches, such as broken windows and cracked siding. Limbing can also help to improve the appearance of your commercial property. You may want to remove old, scraggly branches that are no longer attractive or useful. Limbing is a process that involves removing the branches from a tree. The best time to limb is in late winter or early spring, when there are no leaves on the tree and the sap has stopped flowing. Limbing is the process of removing all but the top few branches from a tree. This can help you control how tall and wide your tree grows, which can prevent it from breaking, falling over and damaging property or needing to be removed entirely. Limbing is done with an axe or chainsaw by cutting off each branch at its base as close to ground [...]

When it comes to your Commercial Property, hire us to Highlight Building Architecture Using Landscaping!

Pugh's Earthworks Landscape design can be used to highlight architectural details in your garden. This can transform a commercial building into a work of art, or even turn the courtyard into a work of art. Landscaping with plants that complement the architecture and materials used in the building will draw attention to these details and make them stand out in a positive way. In this article we discuss ways that Pugh's Earthworks is trained to Highlight Building Architecture Using Landscaping.  When you are highlighting building architecture, think about the overall look of the structure. Do you want to use plants and flowers that reflect its color or design? Or would you prefer something more subtle? You can also consider using plants with complimentary colors, which will create contrast without being too jarring for viewers. When it comes to landscaping around a building, trees and shrubs are often used as a backdrop and provide privacy from neighboring properties. Trees should be placed far enough away from buildings so that they won't interfere with them if they grow over time. Groundcovers like grasses can be used underneath trees as well as between other plantings; this provides insulation from cold temperatures in winter months but still allows for plenty of sunlight throughout spring through autumn periods when there are no leaves on trees yet. When it comes to landscaping around a building, trees and shrubs are often used as a backdrop and provide privacy from neighboring properties. Plants and Flowers to reflect the building's architecture. Use plants and flowers that are native to the area. If you are working on a building in a city, use plants that grow well in that climate. If your building is on sandy soil, then choose plants that do not require much water to survive (like cacti). Do not plant trees whose roots might damage underground pipes or cables when they grow too large! Choose appropriate landscaping materials for your water source--and remember: if it rains all the time where you live, then there's no point investing money into an elaborate irrigation system! While you want to create a garden that is complementary to your building, it is also important not to overwhelm the structure with too many plants. To avoid this, we recommend creating a color scheme by using plants and flowers with complimentary colors. Use purple flowers such as lilacs or bluebells if your building has dark green siding on it. Use red tulips alongside brick walls; although these two items do not match exactly (red vs brown), they are still similar enough in hue so as not to clash when placed next each other on purpose. Highlight Building Architecture Plants The plants you choose should be in contrast to the building's color, material, and texture. If the building is white or light colored with a smooth surface, use plants with dark foliage and/or bark. If your building has a rough texture add soft looking plants such as ferns or grasses that are not too tall, [...]

Hire Us Today for all of your Autumn Commercial Landscaping Needs!

Our monthly seasonal landscape care includes vital Autumn Commercial Landscaping. We are proud to be one of the best commercial landscape companies in Memphis and continue to seek ways to improve our service offering, knowledge, and experience to help customers maintain a beautiful landscape while reducing water usage. If you are a commercial property owner, then you know the importance of keeping your property looking its best. But what happens during the winter? Many commercial properties need to be prepared for winter by performing maintenance tasks such as relocating perennials and removing leaves. If you are looking for ways to keep your commercial landscaping healthy in the winter months, we recommend that you follow these steps: Relocate Perennials Remove perennials that are not winter hardy. Remove perennials that are not in full bloom. Remove diseased or damaged plants, as well as those out of place in the garden, such as those growing too close to walkways or other plantings. Consider removing any perennials that are too big for their location; they may need to be divided every few years, so they do not overwhelm the space around them. If a perennial has finished blooming and is not producing any new growth, it may need more time to recover before you prune it back. A few weeks after the last flower fades on a perennial, wait until new growth begins in spring to trim back the plant. If your goal is to keep plants looking neat and attractive, you will need to prune them regularly. Once you get the hang of it, annual pruning takes only a few minutes each year. For more information on specific types of perennials, visit our Perennial Library. Autumn Lawn Fertilization The best time to fertilize your lawn is in late spring or early summer. Fertilizing in the autumn can cause problems with winter freezing, as well as make it more difficult for grass to recover in springtime. The type of fertilizer you use will depend on what kind of soil you have: sandy soil needs a different type than clay, which needs a different type than loamy soil. You should also consider whether your lawn has been treated with herbicides or pesticides recently--the chemicals used could interfere with the effectiveness of fertilizers and limit their lifespan in your yard. Also consider Pugh's Earthworks fall leaf removal services and we will make sure not all those leaves end up in landfills! If pruning has been neglected throughout summer months due primarily due high heat indices (and therefore making it difficult), now is a great time before first frost hits so that newly cut branches will not dry out prematurely while waiting around until next springtime comes around again." You should also consider whether your lawn has been treated with herbicides or pesticides recently--the chemicals used could interfere with the [...]

If you have any outdoor areas, such as parking lots or walkways around your building, landscaping can help make them look better for customers or employees who use those areas on a regular basis. Landscaping can be done in many different ways depending on what type of space you want to use it for: Enhancements made around entrances and exits such as street signs or other signage are some ways that landscaping can add value. These types of enhancements will make sure customers know where they are going when they come into town! If you have a parking lot or a walkway, landscaping can be used to make it look more appealing. You could add flowers or plants that will attract bees and birds, which will make the space seem more alive. This can also help attract customers who are interested in supporting local businesses as well as those who want to feel like they are walking through nature when they come into town. Landscaping can also be used to make your parking lot or walkway safer for customers. You could add things like speed bumps or flowerbeds to slow down cars, which will help prevent accidents from happening. You could also add reflective tape on the ground or signs that say “Pedestrian Crossing” to let people know where they should walk and drive. Retail Center Flower Beds A retail center flower bed is a garden space that can be used to display plants and flowers in a retail store. The purpose of a retail center flower bed is to add aesthetic appeal and interest to your store, but it can also help customers find their way around the store more easily. You should consider planting annuals in your retail center flower bed because they will be replaced every year when they die back, allowing you to keep up with trends in plant life without having to spend money on new plants every season. Retail Center Hedges  Retail centers are a great place to have a beautiful and well-maintained landscape. By adding hedges, you can beautify your retail center while also creating a natural barrier between it and the outside world. Hedges are also a great way to add privacy, especially if you are located in an area where there is a lot of traffic. They can be used as a natural partition for parking lots and business entrances, which will allow you to maintain your property without [...]
