When it comes to seasonal landscaping care, winter is one of the most challenging due to the cold conditions, including the potential for snow and ice. The freezing ground can also make it difficult to do some of the most common landscaping and lawn maintenance tasks like weeding and planting. Winter is the perfect time to address landscaping and prepare the lawn and shrubs for spring and summer growth. Additionally, you want to maintain that all important curb appeal for your commercial property during the harsh winter months. Pugh's Earthworks will take steps winter proof your commercial property. Below is a high-level overview of some of the important actions to take to winterize your commercial property.

The certified landscape technicians at Pugh's Earthworks will perform a soil analysis to determine what is the best treatment.
