Creates an attractive look that matches your brand First impressions are everything as a prospect drives up to your business. Whether it's in a retail center, office building, or standalone property, it has to look nice and well-maintained. That's because how it looks provides an impression of what the business might be like. You want them to stop, park, and come in and do business with you rather than keep on driving. A commercial landscape company knows how to create an inviting look to draw customers in. 2. Helps you become an eco-friendly business You may not know how to change your landscape so it uses less water or takes advantage of eco-friendly practices. That's when it makes sense to leave it to the commercial landscape professional who understands how to use native plants and design an eco-friendly landscape that contributes to the environment rather than takes away precious natural resources. 3. Increases productivity You can focus more on your business and less on the time-consuming activity of taking care of your landscape. Plus, will be inspired and motivated by the attractive landscape to get more done. Working with a commercial  landscape design professional, you can also add things like a patio and outdoor seating to encourage employees to go outside and enjoy their breaks, so they come back refreshed and ready to work. They may even enjoy working outside when weather permits and get more done by doing so. 4. Raises commercial property value. Similar to a residential property, the more attractive your commercial property is the more valuable it becomes should you go to sell it, lease it, or take out a loan. A commercial landscape company can help you add features like lighting, hardscape, and other features that do the most to raise value. 5. Attracts more customers.  A professional commercial landscaping company can help you attract more customers that are drawn to your business just from the inviting fountain, lighting, seating, and array of flowers, greenery, and even lawn. This attractive and natural look is a way to draw people in who might have otherwise continued to walk on by.

Trim Your Limbs For Healthier Trees

Pugh's Earthworks The Best Commercial Landscape Services in Memphis Healthy trees are ones that have their limbs trimmed on a regular basis. Plus, it makes the landscape look great and ensures a higher level of safety that limbs or branches won't fall unexpectedly. As a commercial landscape company, we have deep expertise and years of experience maintaining trees. Here are some tips to follow for trimming those limbs: General Tree Trimming A general rule of thumb is to trim or prune a tree during its dormant season. Be aware of the size of the branches that you need to remove.  Only trim branches that have weak, V-shaped, and narrow angles. Be sure to keep the branches that have strong, U-shaped angles. Then, lateral branches should be between one-half and three-quarters the diameter of the stem where it attaches to the tee. Otherwise, these branches should be removed.   Tree Pruning Tips Crown thinning involves thinning out the limbs located near the crown of the tree. When you work on this area of the tree, keep the lateral branches as evenly spaced as possible. You'll also need to remove the branches that cross or run against others. Crown raising is a way to provide clearance for pedestrians. When you do this pruning process, keep the live branches on at least two-thirds of the tree’s height. Crown reduction involves removing the whole branch.   Tree Trimming Techniques Before trimming anything, identify the branch collar, which grows from the stem tissue at the bottom base of the branch. Also, look for the branch ridge, which is on the upper surface. Always cut outside the branch bark ridge and angle the cut down and away from the stem.  This technique can also be used to remove dead branches and trim back living branches.   Pugh's Earthworks is one of the largest landscape design, installation and maintenance firms in the Mid South area, including cities in Tennessee like Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville as well as Little Rock, Arkansas.

Avoid Planting Trees and Shrubs in the Heat of Summer

Pugh's Earthworks is one of the largest 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 Home Owners Associations (HOAs), Condo Owners Associations (COA’s) and individual residential homeowners. Pugh's Earthworks The Best Landscape Services in Memphis There is no denying that summer has arrived. That heat and humidity say it all. For those of us that work out in that heat, we know how we feel: wilted and dehydrated (if we are not careful). Just that feeling alone tells you why you should avoid planting trees and shrubs in the heat of the summer. Imagine how they must feel and then on top of that trying to get acclimated to new soil and put roots down. It's not a formula for successful planting. Instead, you may want to forego any planting until the heat of the summer diminishes and wait until the fall to provide a better opportunity for the trees and shrubs to get settled in before the winter weather arrives. This is an ideal time to rethink your commercial landscape and explore more drought-resistant plants. You may also want to consider a drip system or other water-friendly measures. Our commercial landscape designers can also work with you on redesigning your landscape to offer something different. Or, we can suggest other ways to protect your landscape from the heat and light intensity of the sun. This includes inspecting your irrigation system, mulching, and re-setting your watering scheduling.

Water Wisely During the Summer Months

Pugh's Earthworks is one of the largest 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 Home Owners Associations (HOAs), Condo Owners Associations (COA’s) and individual residential homeowners. Pugh's Earthworks The Best Landscape Services in Memphis For Summer During the summer months, the hot weather and intense sunlight are tough for summer plants and lawns to take. That's 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. Here 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 more is those found in vegetable gardens. This includes pods that are forming on beans, fruit that is forming on summer squash or zucchini, and tomatoes that are flowering. Help conserve water in the soil: Take steps to keep the water in place for the week by adding a layer of mulch. This also maintains a steady ground temperature and keeps it from heating up. Compost also improves the soil to hold water so add organic matter like leaves, grass, garden trimmings, and vegetable peelings. Contact [...]
