Pugh’s Earthworks will Help with all Commercial Landscaping Including Proper Spring Lawn Fertilization

Pugh's Earthworks is a Mid-South Premiere Commercial Landscaping Company We are just about done with our last days of freezing temperatures. Spring is near and in fact most of the USA will be Springing Forward this weekend for Daylights Savings Time. Fresh plant growth and watching things turn green again is so enjoyable. This is also the time of year when Commercial Property Owners start to consider their landscape design for the upcoming summer season. One very import facet of landscape care is Spring Lawn Fertilization. Now is the time to recruit the experts at Pugh's Earthworks! Absent the use of a professional Landscaping Company, below are all of the items a Commercial Property Owner would need to consider for proper Fertilization. It is much more effective to call in the professionals. Lawns need fertilizer during the early spring when the grass begins to green up. Feeding the lawn, shrubs, flowers, and other aspects of your landscape promote growth while also strengthening the roots so the temperature changes aren't an issue. There are several ways to apply lawn fertilizer during the spring season. A spreader ensures more even coverage than fertilizing by hand. Also, hand fertilizing may result in burns where the fertilizer is concentrated and pale areas that don’t get as much fertilizer as they should. Try a broadcast or rotary spreader because they are easy to use and do not cause striping like a drop spreader. However, a drop spreader ensures that there is no chance of overthrow causing fertilizer to land on streets, sidewalks, or driveways. At the same time, a drop spreader requires two trips over the lawn at right angles. Apply the fertilizer and then thoroughly water the lawn. This rinses the fertilizer off the grass blades so they will not burn and lets the fertilizer sink into the soil to do its job. Keep people and pets off the lawn for 24 to 48 hours. There are different types of fertilizer that can be used. Slow release doesn't have to be used as often, but these are more expensive. Fast-release offers quick results, but you have to apply it in smaller amounts and more often. Your risk of burning your lawn increases. Weed and feed is another fertilizer option. You will need to be careful around trees, shrubs, and garden plants. You can use organic materials like compost and manure, but you will have to use a lot  Also, horse manure may contain weed seeds. Liquid fertilizers aren’t recommended because they are difficult to apply evenly and require frequent applications. Be sure to water the lawn a few days before you plan to fertilize. When you do apply the fertilizer, make sure the grass blades are completely dry to avoid burns. If you would like help with fertilizing and maintaining your commercial landscape, contact us now to find out how a monthly plan can ensure you enjoy a beautiful commercial landscape throughout the year that welcomes your visitors.

Not only does Pugh's Earthworks take pride in their professional image but they also stay current through many Commercial Landscaping publications, seminars and industry trade groups. A few years ago, management realized how inefficient being a paper-based office was. After researching options, the team elected to go paper-less. Below is a short story on how that all came about. " Michael Pugh, co-owner and CFO of Pugh's Earthworks based in Memphis, TN, says he first began thinking about transitioning to a paperless office back in 2005. Since that time the business has grown dramatically. Three additional branches have been opened. The volume of paper being generated daily—not to mention the inefficiencies tied to the handling of all that paper—soon spiraled out of control. Pugh reached his breaking point in 2010. "We were simply out of room at our main facility in Memphis," Pugh recalls. "We already had one entire office stuffed full of filing cabinets. Additionally, we had well over 100 three-ring binders with work orders from the past couple of years. We're talking about the type of paperwork you don't need to put your hands on every day, but still important enough that you don't want to shred it. I did not know what to do. I was looking at having to pay someone off site to store our paper. That was tough to swallow." Pugh happened upon a company called Cabinet NG at a QuickBooks user's conference. He learned about a product called CNG-SAFE, a complete document management and workflow software product. His curiosity over the concept of paperless was revitalized". It is small steps like these that add up to a Best-in-Class Commercial Landscaping company. In every facet of the business, the Pugh's Earthworks team maintains excellence by taking pride in their work and staying curious for ways to learn about improvements.

Pugh’s Earthworks can help Commercial Property Owners with the Important Spring Pest Control Treatment

Pugh's Earthworks Appreciates the Opportunity to Serve We have all heard the term "Spring Cleaning". Another very important part of preparing your Commercial Property for the new growing season is Spring Pest Control Treatment. Not only do plants, trees, flowers and grass start coming alive but pesky insects and other unwanted pests begin to come out of hibernation as well. The Pugh's Earthworks team is trained in all the proper chemicals and proper applications required to rid these pests from your Commercial Property. Rodents and insects can wreak havoc on your commercial landscape and buildings. These insect pests include fleas and ticks, mosquitos, flies, ants, cockroaches, and termites. When you hire the experts at Pugh's Earthworks you are making an investment in your valuable Commercial Property. Spring Pest Control Treatment This is the season to start with your insect control strategies, which can help how much pest control work you have to do the rest of the year. Here are some tips for spring insect control: Store and dispose of food and waste properly, including any bins located around your commercial property. Keep these bins tightly closed and empty them daily. Control moisture and standing water around your commercial property. High humidity contributes to pest egg production. Fix any leaks and clear out gutters and downspouts. Also, trim tall grass and remove any wet or decaying wood. Inspect perimeter areas around your commercial property for areas that may be ideal for insects to breed and live. Treat these areas first. Trim back trees and shrubs touching your commercial building as insects like to live there. If there are any fruit trees, clean these up because ants and other insects love the fruit. Keep all areas of your commercial property as clean as possible. Insects like debris and trash so remove all brush piles, excess leaves, and trash. Avoid mulch because insects love its warmth and moisture. The mulch should be used sparingly or not at all. Partner with Rosie’s Pest Control, which as part of Pugh’s Earthworks, has pest control services. This can help by regularly treating all lawn and landscape areas to limit any insects or pests. Contact us now to find out how we can reduce and even eliminate insects now, so you don’t have to deal with them throughout the year.

Contact Pugh’s Earthworks for Commercial Property Pre-Emergent Treatment

Pugh's Earthworks Backs Every Job with a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee Now is the time of year when pre-emergent lawn treatments need to be applied. If you are a homeowner, you may be using a Commercial Lawn company to spray or spread chemicals. Owning a Commercial Property is the same when it comes to lawn care. Preventing weeds from germinating is the best investment an owner can make when it comes to ensuring a beautiful lawn later in the season. Pugh's Earthworks is the best company for Commercial Property Pre - Emergent Treatment. In addition to early season Pre-Emergent service, Pugh's Earthworks will keep your Commercial Property looking beautiful throughout the growing season. As a result of using our full services of year-round lawncare which includes, fertilizer application, mowing, irrigation, aeration, weed control and more, you will be proud of your Commercial Property. Customers and employees will enjoy the view as well. The magic of the Pre-Emergent process is the herbicides contained in the treatment. They act as a barrier by creating a vapor that eliminates weeds before they are allowed to germinate. It is critical that the service happens at the proper time. The professionals at Pugh's Earthworks know exactly what time is best. However, weeds that were present during the last growing season will not be eliminated by Pre-Emergent treatment. These will need to be professionally treated. In summary, the best approach to controlling weeds throughout your commercial landscaping is to stop them from even showing up. First, it's important to know about the weeds you are trying to control. There are perennial weeds that survive and reproduce even in adverse conditions like even through winter weather. Then, there are annual weeds that can’t survive underground but some emerge at times of the year when preemergent weed killers aren’t active. Next, it's good to have a weed control strategy as part of your landscape maintenance program that incorporates pre-emergent weed control. These products should be used before a plant germinates in early spring. For difficult annual weeds, you may need to do multiple applications, including at the start of the spring and then at timed intervals throughout the season. This is because pre-emergent weed killers don't destroy weeds and their seeds. What they do is stop the weeds and their seeds from growing. For the first treatment of pre-emergent, the middle of March is highly recommended just when the spring season is about to start. This tends to get the weeds that most commonly start to appear as the average soil temperatures go above 50 degrees. Major summer weeds include crabgrass or clover, so it's important to use a pre-emergent treatment to stop them. Often, it can seem time-consuming to handle all these weed control treatments at your commercial property. Plus, you might be worried about visitors coming into contact with the pre-emergent treatments for weeds. Above all, you can leave the weed control work to us by contacting us now to find out how we can add weed control [...]

Pugh’s helps customers properly Winterize Commercial Properties

Pugh's Earthworks Winterize Commercial Properties The recent winter storm that just impacted much of the US, brings to light the need to Winterize Commercial Properties. Pugh's Earthworks has well trained and certified Commercial Landscape Technicians that can help with that. We will inspect every aspect of your property in terms of protection from icy conditions. Winterizing is not just for home residents but is equally as important for business owners. Consequently, many of the same issues need to be addressed in a similar fashion. For instance, below are some of the things that need to be part of the process. Winterize Commercial Properties: Similarly, to a personal residence, the heating system of a commercial building needs to be in safe and proper working order. The Pugh's Earthworks professionals will be able to assess the functionality. In addition, we will recommend further HVAC assistance if deemed necessary. Cold air can slip through cracks in window and door seals. We can examine all areas and determine if maintenance is required to keep the cold air out. In the same vein, this can be a large energy cost savings to the business. Not all but some Commercial buildings have a fireplace. Pugh's will examine the fireplace and determine if it is working properly or might need some maintenance. Proper gutter functionality is critical to facilitate water drainage. Therefore, if gutters are clogged with leaves or other debris, the Pugh's team will clean the gutters. Water needs to project away from your building and be allowed to collect. The condition of a roof is critical to a Commercial building just as it is to a home residence. Our team will examine the condition of your roof and note any issues that appear to need immediate attention. Sprinklers, Pruning and Lighting Irrigation systems for Commercial Properties are critical especially during the hot and dry summer months. However, during the icy winter, if they are leaking, they can be destructive to the building and a danger to employees and customers. Pugh's will examine all sprinklers to be sure they are properly winterized. One of the biggest problems in frigid temperatures is ice causing power outages. Many times, it is caused by tree limbs that fall on power lines due to the heavy weight of the ice buildup. As part of the regular Pugh's Earthworks Commercial Landscape service contract, pruning is a year-round service. If we find that we need to prune addition limbs prior to ice storms, we will address that proactively. Pugh's Earthworks can also install additional outdoor lighting during wintery conditions. Additional lighting will make it safer for any employees that may work later.     Pugh's Earthworks Sprinkler Systems   Pugh’s Earthworks has been providing commercial landscaping services since 1992.

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.
