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 [...]

Our team is committed to acting with the utmost of integrity with our business operations and for clients and the communities we serve. Every job we do is backed by our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. The experts at Pugh's Earthworks will help explain the benefits of installing a lawn sprinkler system! Frequently Asked Questions and Answers about Irrigation Installation Q: How will I benefit from an in-ground sprinkler system? A: Since hand watering is done on a random basis, and at irregular intervals, an automatic sprinkler system will actually, in most cases, use less water. It will also disperse the water at an even rate, and for a predetermined amount of time. This allows you to water sunny and shady areas for different periods of time, and to water when it is most efficient. One obvious benefit is the ability to continue a watering program while you are away on vacation, etc. Q: How long does a system take to put in? A: It would depend on the area that is trying to be covered. An average size lawn (@15,000 sq. ft.) can usually be done in one full day, depending on the situation. A large country lawn can take anywhere from two to four days. On average, we spend one to two days on a job. Q: What is a back flow device, and why do I need one on my sprinkler system? A: A back flow device is generally a brass assembly that will prevent any water from the sprinkler system from getting into the drinking water supply, and are required by all municipalities. There are many different types of these, and each individual municipality has differing requirements for the installation. Q: What type of maintenance does the system require? A: All systems need to be winterized at the end of the season. This is done by attaching an air hose to a fitting on the water line, and blowing all of the water out of the system. Most people that we install systems for simply turn it back on in the springtime themselves. We do offer the service of opening systems for the season. The quality of the products used initially, and of the overall installation, play an important part in the long [...]

Every job we do is backed by our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. Lawns need to be watered regularly in Summer and the experts at Pugh's Earthworks will help you analyze the process! 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 [...]

Beautiful Estate Lawn   Handling Heat Stress on Lawns We all enjoy a lush, green, healthy lawn during the summer months. However the effects of heat and dry conditions can leave lawns struggling to survive. Heat stress occurs typically during the hottest months of summer and results frequently in severe moisture loss for your lawn. Using the services of a professional landscaping company like Pugh's Earthworks will help you ensure your lawn has a good chance of surviving the effects of summer heat. Common indicators that a lawn is under stress: Ghost prints -  A sure sign that your lawn is under stress is when you walk on it and the blades of grass do not rebound. Leaving footprints of flattened grass that are referred to as ghost prints. Discoloration - Often the effect of high temperatures and drought causes a yellowing or browning of the grass tips or the entire lawn. Deep watering may remedy this unless there is a larger issue such as insect damage. The professionals at Pugh's Earthworks are trained and experienced to deliver the proper diagnosis. Compaction -  One clever way to determine if your soil is too dry is to try pushing a screwdriver into the surface of your lawn.  A hardened dry surface will make inserting the screwdriver very difficult, Conversely, if the screwdriver is easy to push into the ground, your lawn is most likely receiving adequately amounts of water. Before calling in the professionals, there are a few things you can do in order to try and self diagnosis problems with your lawn. Below are some of those: Check to see if your lawn might have a chinch bug infestation. These are small black and white insects that you will see crawling between the blades of grass. Another pesky insect are grub worms. They will actually eat the roots of your lawn leaving it unable to survive. If you are able to tug on the sections [...]
