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 [...]

Pugh’s Earthworks is experienced with Summer Commercial Lawn Care

Pugh's Earthworks commits to strive in all we do for total customer satisfaction May has now arrived and already temperatures are expected to be in the nineties and above in some regions. Will not be long before the summer heat sets in for the long haul. Proper Summer Commercial Lawn Care is critical to keep lawns looking good and staying healthy. The certified and professional Landscape Technicians at Pugh's Earthworks, have the knowledge and tools to keep Commercial Property lawns in tip top shape during the hot summer. Being exposed to excessive heat not only takes its toll on us humans but it also is difficult to bear for nature. Meaning plants, flowers, and lawns. However, you can still enjoy a healthy Commercial Landscape even in the midst of extreme summer heat when you hire Pugh's Earthwork's. There are numerous actions that can be taken during the extreme heat of summer. Our team at Pugh's Earthworks is trained in all aspects of climate adjustments as it relates to Commercial Landscaping. Below are a few of the things we are mindful of. Length of the Lawn Often people like to mow the lawn very short. It looks nice and neat and gives the lawn that well-kept golf course look. However, when this happens and it is super-hot outside, your lawn suffers and turns brown. This is because the lawn is restricted on how much energy it can produce for growth. However, if you do not trim it too short, then the grass can develop stronger roots. And it is those stronger roots that support plants that can tolerate the stress that heat puts on it during the summer months. Use the One-Third Rule To determine the correct height to cut your grass, apply the “one-third” rule. This rule says never remove more than one-third of the grass height at one time. This keeps the lawn cooler because it removes less plant tissue. For example, if you normally cut your lawn at 2.5 inches, increase it to 3 inches during the hot summer months. Do not Over Water A big mistake so many people make, is to think the heat means grass needs more water. However, all that does is create another problem. The soil then tends to be constantly wet. This causes the grass roots to be deprived of oxygen. This can make them more susceptible to disease because diseases tend to thrive in wet conditions. Therefore, the drier the grass and soil, the less risk for a disease. Although you want to ensure hydration, you do not need to water daily to get that. Keep Mower Blades Sharp When grass is cut with a sharp mower blade, it will heal faster. Then, it is less susceptible to stress and disease that comes during the hot season. Also, the sharper mower blades will prevent a brown appearance. Use a Mulching Mower Rather than bagging up the lawn clippings, return them to the lawn by using a mulching mower. Clippings act as [...]

A professional landscape technician has studied all of these elements to obtain certification. Absent a thorough understanding of complete lawn maintenance, it becomes difficult to maintain a healthy and attractive lawn and landscape. Below are some of the important factors that play a vital role in a healthy lawn: Watering - The general rule of thumb by most lawn experts is to water so that the soil is moistened six to eight inches deep. Lightly watering does not encourage deep root grow and thus allows the grass to be susceptible to severe burning from the hot sun.  Different soil types will require varying amounts of water so a certified lawn technician will understand these differences. Typically it is better to water in the cooler early morning. This allows the water to absorb but then lets the natural evaporation process take place as the day heats up. Mowing - The above ground stem of the grass which is sometimes referred to as culm, derives its nutrients from underground. The taller the stem the more difficult it is for the valuable nutrients to reach to the top. Therefore it [...]

Checking the condition of the lawn Summer Lawn Watering Most lawn experts and research indicates that turf grasses need an estimated 1 inch of water per week to stay healthy and green. Although occasionally if the summer heat is too intense you may have to let the lawn go into an almost dormant state. In order to have a strong lawn you need to encourage deep root growth. In addition we all need to be aware of water conservation. It is a precious resource to be used wisely. Below are some tips that experts recommend. When to water - Signs of footprints and a darker color in the lawn are typically signs of early drought stress. Water infrequently - When you water make sure the watering is deep down to the roots. This creates a deep root growth pattern and encourages less weed growth. Water early in the day - If you water in the heat of the day your water will evaporate. If you water at night it can create fungal growth and lawn damage. Spread the water evenly - Try to avoid flooding some spots while missing the water on others. Water conservation awareness -  Mowing the lawn higher, avoiding excess nitrogen fertilizer, limiting foot traffic, discontinuing pesticides and careful placement of the sprinklers so as not to waste water on the driveway or street are all things that can help to conserve water. Avoid over-watering - As the water is absorbed monitor your watering to ensure there are no areas of standing water afterwards. Monitor rainfall - Watch the weather forecasts. If rain is expected do not water the lawn.

Lawn Fertilization Summer Lawn Care Homeowners spend an average of 40 hours each year mowing according to Audubon.org. Of course that is only the mowing part, there is also the $8.5 billion spent on lawn care products like fertilizer, weed control and lawn equipment. According to experts in the field of gardening, below are some tips for lawn care during the summer months: Fertilizing  -  Typically fertilization is only required a couple of times per year. Experts agree that fertilization in the spring and then again in midsummer yields effective results in terms of lawn appearance and overall health. Specially blended fertilizers for lawns which contain high amounts of nitrogen stimulate growth and a deep green color. Feeding the lawn twice per year often results in excessive growth which can lead to additional watering and mowing needs. The type of fertilizer used also makes a difference according to experts. Many brands offer pre-emergent herbicides mixed in with the actual nitrogen. Pre-emergents are a tremendous aid in preventing weed growth. However, it is thought by many turf growers that it is best to use pre-emergents by themselves rather than the ones mixed in with lawn food. Fertilizer Spreading - When you feed the lawn it is always best to do it when the grass is dry. This is because if the grass is wet the grains of fertilizer can stick to blades of grass instead of going down to the soil as needed. If the fertilizer sticks to the wet blades it typically will result in chemical burning that will damage the lawn. Using a fertilizer spreader is the most effective tool. It is also important to load the spreader while it is setting on he sidewalk or driveway. Invariably there will be spillage as you load the spreader. This can be swept up and placed in the spreader if on the concrete but if the spillage is on the lawn itself it will result in [...]
