The expert technicians at Pugh’s Earthworks will prepare your commercial property for the upcoming fall season

Pugh's Earthworks Summer is not over but we are into the later part of the season. Like all seasons a certified landscape technician will be trained on all the appropriate steps to take for landscape protection and health. Pugh's Earthworks has the best technicians in the industry and will ensure that your commercial property is ready to make the jump from summer heat to cooler fall temperatures. Here are some tips for late summer landscape care: Water as you are able - Some parts of the country are in a severe drought. This makes watering problematic when watering is being restricted. As you are able, try to keep plant containers moist and water the lawn as restrictions allow. Remove old dried blooms from flowers or otherwise called deadheading. By getting rid of the dead and dried blooms you are making way for new grow and plus making the flower beds look more well keep. The same holds true for trees and shrubs. Late summer is a good time for light pruning of dead limbs or over growth. Cleaning of tools is important also so that you do not spread any fungus or other disease from trimming affected trees and shrubs. Late summer can be a great time to re-seed any bare spots in the lawn that have appearing during the hot temperatures of summer. There is a best practice of using the proper amount of sand, fertilizer and seed. A trained landscape technician like those at Pugh's Earthworks will know that proper method. This time of year is perfect for starting to evaluate your landscaping and decide which fall flower bulbs you want to plant in order to add fall color to your flower beds. Lawn insects that can damage your yard have in some cases become well established over the warm summer months. Now is the time to attack insects like grub worms and other grass eating bugs. Pugh's Earthworks is trained in the process of choosing and safely applying the right chemicals to reduce the number of these pests that damage your lawn. This is the time of year for commercial property owners to seek the advice and service of a professional landscaping company like Pugh's Earthworks. Owners have other responsibilities like running a successful business. It is time to relax about the landscaping and leave that to the professionals.

Your commercial property grass and plants need nutrition in the Spring and the Pugh’s Earthworks professionals know the correct fertilizer to apply

Pugh's Earthworks The certified landscape technicians at Pugh's Earthworks, are licensed and well versed in all types of fertilizer and chemical commercial lawn applications. It is Spring which is a critical time to fertilize your lawn and plants. That is because this is when growing season starts again. The fertilizer has the nutrition that all green things need to really start growing. In addition to the proper application of fertilizers, commercial lawns must have adequate water. Again the certified landscape technicians at Pugh's Earthworks will consult with each property owner on the correct level of watering to maximize the health of the lawn. Water promotes cell enlargement and aids in evaporative cooling. Lawns and plants also require sunlight and carbon dioxide for energy production as well as oxygen for respiration. Lawn growth also involves getting nutrients from the soil that are absorbed by roots. Sometimes, the soil does not have these nutrients so that's where fertilizer comes in to help out. In fact, one research article noted that there must be at least 18 elements for proper plant growth. And, if any are missing, it could limit plant or lawn growth. This includes nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. By applying fertilizer to the soil, the soil becomes more fertile. The result is that the plants and lawn that the soil feeds becomes healthier, resisting damage from insects and fungus. Commercial property owners will be able to tell if plants, trees, and lawns are not getting the right nutrition. That is because their leaves will be yellow or light green. They may even have dead spots on them. There will be fewer leaves. And, the ones that are there will be smaller than normal. There will also be poor plant structure and root growth. Look for fertilizers that incorporate organic enzymes and amino acids. These help plants and lawns deal with any seasonal stresses from heat or frosts as well as transplanting. Since more insects and diseases also turn up at this time, these ingredients in the fertilizer will help strengthen the roots and offer protection. Look for fertilizers for certain types of plants, shrubs, and lawns. It helps to use a customized fertilizer for the area you want to feed. If you are not sure, contact us at Pugh's Earthworks and we'll be glad to help with lawn fertilizing and yard fertilizing.

Pugh’s Earthworks has the experience to control lawn and shrub insect damage

Pugh's Earthworks May is now here and Spring is in full swing. Such a beautiful time of year. The weather is becoming comfortable, lawns are starting to green, flowers are blooming, trees are leafing out and insects are coming out of hiding! Pugh’s Earthworks services include pest control for commercial and residential properties. We partner with Rosie’s Pest Control and hold the necessary certifications in compliance with state regulations to prevent, eliminate and exclude pests from commercial properties, inside and out. A wide variety of common pests including mosquitos, flies, bedbugs, rodents, roaches, spiders and ants are treated with EPA approved, environmentally friendly products. Safety of individuals and pets is key in all treatment procedures. “Convenience is of utmost importance to property managers and business owners, and we have expanded our services to include indoor and outdoor pest control solutions in order to accommodate the needs of our commercial clientele” says owner Mark Pugh. “We feel that offering a more comprehensive variety of services is in the best interest of our existing and potential customers.” Mark Pugh has over 20 years of experience in the landscaping business and Pugh’s Earthworks has offices in Memphis, Little Rock, Nashville and Jackson MS. The Pugh’s business model has been to provide excellence in customer service and listen to what their clients are asking for. This willingness to adapt and expand has resulted in a successful courier service that was born out of flower delivery vans. Now, with the pest control expansion, Pugh’s has taken advantage of another opportunity to serve its customers more completely. The Pugh brothers have done an admirable job with business expansion and adapting to meet the needs of existing customers in a constantly changing economic climate. 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 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. 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. By getting control of pests now, there will be less work to do the rest of the year. Only companies that have [...]

Autumn Garden Fall Grasses and Landscaping Preparation Soon the weather will be cooling down and fall be here. Our certified landscape technicians can help you start preparations to keep your fall grass and landscape in healthy condition. Some helpful tips are below. Cool-season grasses -  These grasses should be fertilized primarily in late Summer and Fall (September and October). Nutrients applied at this time encourage root growth and turf thickening. Fall applications also result in early spring green-up without causing excessive leafy top growth. Given proper fall fertilization, spring applications may not be required. High rates of nitrogen (more than 1 pound per 1,000 square feet) in the spring will stimulate unnecessary flushes of leaf growth and may predispose the lawn to greater summer damage. No more than one spring fertilization should occur. This can be in late Match or early April with a weed-and-feed treatment for crabgrass or in May with a slow-release nitrogen source. Keep mowing - Grass continues to grow until the first freeze or frost at which time it in then goes dormant for the winter. For that reason you should continue to mow until it stops growing. Water -  So the cooler temperatures create less water evaporation. This means you need to be using a more reserved amount of water. A good rule of thumb is to supplement watering the yard so that it is getting one inch of water per week. Frequent Raking - Soon leaves with be falling. It is important to rake the leaves and remove them from the grass. They can block out the sunlight and if left on the lawn for too long can lead to fungal diseases. Aeration -  This is not always a top of mind procedure however it is one that is very beneficial to your lawn. The summer heat drys out the soil and it typically gets very compacted. When you do professional Aeration, this process breaks up the soil [...]

Beautiful Estate Lawn   Handling Heat Stress on Lawns We all enjoy a lush, green, healthy lawn during the summer months.

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.

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.

Therefore, we tend to do more fertilizing during the mid to late spring. We adhere to a strict process for fertilizing your lawn because we know this optimizes results while minimizing any damage that fertilizing mistakes can cause.
