Pugh’s Earthworks is a Premiere Customer First Commercial Landscaping Business

Pugh's Earthworks I recently ran across an article from the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) that spoke to the importance of proper etiquette when it comes to Commercial Landscaping. Like any industry, treating customers like they are the most important is critical to any sustainable business model. Pugh's Earthworks is a premiere Commercial Landscaping Business in the Mid-South. Customers that utilize our services not only receive top quality services, but they also receive the respect and proper manners they deserve. The article was a good reminder that manner's matter. When you read the testimonials from the Pugh's Earthworks customers, it is clear our team fully embraces that fact. Below is an example: Testimonials “Act of Kindness.  So much of the time we only complain, but today I want to let you know of an extreme act of kindness expressed to me.  I was blowing the leaves off my carport and off my driveway when all of a sudden 8 young men with leave blowers came over and they blew the leaves off my entire front yard and added them to the ones they were cleaning up.  It took them less than 5 minutes, but I will remember this for the rest of my life.  We are elderly & my husband is a disabled veteran so I am sure you can tell how much this helped me.  Kudos to Pugh’s for hiring such compassionate & hard-working young men!” P. Harper Greenbrook The Pugh's Earthworks management team organizes periodic training classes for all employees. These cover the basics of safety, equipment handling and of course the proper interaction with all valuable customers. According to the NALP article, below are some of the basic principles a well-run service company like Pugh's Earthworks always follows: Commercial Landscaping Business Be Courteous This is the most basic level of etiquette all your employees should practice. Teach them to always be aware of people and train them to wave or smile at the customer or even passersby. Throttling down a blower or string trimmer as a neighbor walk by is a sign of respect. Your crews should know to behave on jobsite and refrain from horseplay or obscene language. Body language is also important. Teach your team members to make eye contact with the client when they’re speaking. This lets the customer know you are giving them your full attention. Discourage fidgeting or having a closed-off stance as this gives off the impression that you are not engaged in the conversation. Be Personal It means a lot to be known and taking the time to address your customers by their names when you are on their property helps them feel like they are not just a number in your book of business. If your crews struggle to remember all the names, provide them a cheat sheet they can look at before starting a job. Taking the time to look over the property and inform the client of any potential issues you see also shows you care about [...]

Pugh’s Earthworks Prepares Commercial Properties for the Winter

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks services many commercial landscaping clients in the mid-south. We are a Certified Commercial Landscaping Company that offers the best year-round services. The major markets we serve are Memphis, Nashville, Jackson TN, Littlerock and Southaven MS. This is the perfect time of year to have our landscape technicians spruce up your commercial property for the winter ahead. The leaves are dropping, grass is going dormant, and flowers are starting to wither. Preparing your commercial lawn and surrounding areas for winter, including flower beds, trees, and shrubs, is a critical strategy for maintaining beautiful landscapes throughout the year. So, there is much to get done in the fall season to prepare for that. Plants and seedlings need to be mulched while lawns need to be cleared of all the falling leaves. Plus, with winds and the start of rain, there is debris that should be removed plus trees and shrubs have to be pruned to get rid of any dead wood. This is also the time to winterize your commercial irrigation system to protect it from the cold elements. Certified Commercial Landscaping Company There are numerous actions that the Pugh's Earthworks team will take to ensure that your property looks clean and organized during the winter.  Below are some of the things we will address for you so that you can rest easy and know your property is well prepared. We know you want to keep your commercial lawn and surroundings looking beautiful throughout the season and into winter: Deadhead flowering plants because this will help keep them healthy. Remove all weeds and debris in the area regularly. This may be something that has to be done more frequently until the trees have shed all their leaves. Debris that also needs to be cleared includes branches and other items that get blown around during this season. Prune plants to create a tidy landscape and sense of order to your commercial surroundings. This also keeps the plants healthy, so they are ready to re-grow in the spring season. Pull all weeds that tend to make your landscape look messy and block your flowers and ornamental plants from putting on a spectacular display. Regularly check for insect damage so that no infestations get out of control. Edge and trim grass areas and mow at a height that keeps it all looking consistent. This regular mowing throughout the fall season will also help strengthen the roots and provide a way for new growth in the spring. Taking care of commercial lawn and surroundings requires a lot of time, which you may not have. Yet, you want your office building, apartment complex, or other commercial structure to look pleasing to the eye as well as neat and tidy. After all, it reflects on your business and impacts those that visit or use these commercial areas on a daily basis.

Pugh’s Earthworks Designs Valuable Hardscapes

Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks provides Commercial Landscape Design and Maintenance to many businesses in the Mid-South. Our home office is located in Memphis, but we also have offices in Nashville, Jackson TN, Littlerock and Southaven MS. The certified landscape technicians at Pugh's Earthworks are skilled at all aspects of commercial landscaping service. One very important area is the design and build out of Hardscapes. The popularity for hardscapes has grown over the years due to the many benefits a property can receive from a well-designed and completed hardscape project. Pugh's Earthworks keeps up with all growing trends and delivers the best service to all of our customers in the five major markets we serve and surrounding areas. The presence of well-designed Hardscaping is critical to any commercial property.  Below are some things to consider as you evaluate modifications to existing or designing new hardscaping. Aesthetics - When clients, employees and vendors visit your commercial property, the presence of beautifully designed, installed and maintained hardscape will add definition and a sense of organization to the property. Hardscapes act as a frame to accent the colorful flower beds and decorative trees that you have selected to display. Typically, the most practical and durable hardscapes are built from heavy materials such as concrete, stone and wood. In addition to the appearance, these beautiful landscapes can be an outdoor oasis of sorts allowing employees to take a lunch break outdoors and perhaps take a brief walk around the property. If the property is a cemetery, hotel, hospital or retail shopping center, the same benefits will exist for customers or hospital patients. Pugh's Earthworks services these types of businesses. Safety - The best design of a hardscape will be well thought out in terms of the safety it provides to pedestrians. The Pugh's Earthworks technicians will carefully draft and review with our Commercial Property client what we feel makes the most practical sense for your property. Realizing that many people from employees, customers, vendors, delivery trucks etc.  will be traversing the property, we want to create a safe environment. Increase Property Value - Protecting and increasing the real estate value of a commercial property is always a major goal. Pugh's Earthworks knows this and therefore in the materials we use to create lovely hardscapes, we are careful to select good quality materials that also provide functionality. For example, we can construct natural brick, stone, interlocking pavers, flagstone cement, foot paths, and sidewalks. Then for purposes of preventing ground erosion and water conservation, we build retaining walls made of stacked stone, brick, or other materials. We also can turn these retaining walls into a natural seating area if our customer desires. Adding outdoor fireplaces is also a great feature. These allow people to enjoy the outdoors during the winter months.

Contact Pugh’s Earthworks to Protect Your Commercial Property in the Summer Heat

Pugh's Earthworks For those of us living in the middle parts of the country, the heat dome is settling in for the long haul. While there is not much rain in the forecast, triple digit temperatures definitely are. Commercial Landscaping is vital to keep lawns, trees, flowers and shrubs from dying and looking their best during the extreme heat of the summer. Pugh's Earthworks is the Commercial Landscaping Company to contract with. They are experts in all facets of Commercial Landscaping and will know what steps to take to protect your Commercial Property from the extreme summer heat. Water Pugh's Earthworks can install an automatic sprinkler system if you do not have one. That is one of our services and we are very experienced with installation and maintenance. An automatic sprinkler system helps ensure that your lawn receives the right amount of water at the right time. Keeping the soil moist is good but deep watering is more important that frequent short waterings. Grass needs at least an inch of water weekly. However, you do not need to water every day. It is actually infrequent watering that encourages deep root growth. Water must get below the root zone to help nourish the roots so they can learn to grow deeper in search of moisture and nutrients. Having a lawn with deep roots helps protect it when it gets so hot during those summer months. It is those deep roots that hold the water and keep the grass cooler so that it will not die out from the excessive heat. Here are some additional lawn maintenance tips to promote those deep roots for your lawn. Soil Start with cultivating the topsoil. Sandy loam or well-drained loam gives roots the ability to stretch out and grow. If you have sandy soil, know that it does not retain water very well. That is when you will need to add organic matter, which delivers the necessary nutrients and increases water retention. Mowing Mow frequently and keep grass at the right height for the type of grass you have. For example, grass with large crowns or clumps, which is typically Kentucky bluegrass or tall fescue, should be mowed at a much taller height. In contrast, zoysia grass should have a shorter mowing. Whatever kind of grass you have, be sure to mow no more than one-third of the blade lengths at a time. This stimulates growth and protects the roots. Fertilizer Fertilize at the end of the growing season to achieve strong root growth. Slow-release fertilizers are often touted as the best for promoting the growth of the grass roots. AgriGro bio stimulants have also been proven to increase root growth. This is because these substances help plants endure environmental stress better than those that were not treated. Other Maintenance You can also encourage strong roots by giving them plenty of room to grow. This means pulling any weeds, which have root systems that like to choke the roots of the grass. Plus, it involves periodic aeration, which [...]

Customers Receive a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee for all Services from Pugh’s Earthworks Including Weed Control Services

Pugh's Earthworks A well-kept lawn whether Residential or Commercial makes a statement about the property. That is one reason owners focus on Weed Control Services. The professional landscape technicians at Pugh's Earthworks are very good at all elements of Commercial Landscape Maintenance. This of course includes keeping the property free from unsightly weeds. First impressions as they say are important. Commercial Property Owners want customers and employees to get the impression that the property is well maintained. The Summer season is wonderful. However, it seems to be a season when lawns are vulnerable to the introduction of destructive weeds.  Pugh's Earthworks will apply preemergent during the Spring to prevent the germination of all varieties of weeds. Even with this valuable preventive measure, weeds still find a way to reenter the lawn. This is why having an experienced Commercial Landscaping Company can make the difference in the appearance of the property year-round. There are numerous varieties of harmful weeds. Below are few of the most common. Crabgrass and Nutsedge - These are grassy type weeds. They tend to blend in better to the normal grass which is their secret to eventually dominating the lawn. A good technique that Pugh's Earthworks may employ is to aerate, water and fertilize the property in the proper quantities and application. This method tends to help the health of the grass you want to grow, and it can eventually overtake and smother out the crabgrass. Broadleaf Weeds - There are several types of broadleaf weeds. They tend to stand out more and truly make any lawn appear unkept. They can also be difficult to eradicate. Some of the more common types of broadleaf weeds are Knotweed Spurge, Dandelion, Ground Ivy, and White Clover.  There is no mistaking these unsightly plants with their large leaves and often flowers. They clearly to not belong in the commercial landscape. Treating broadleaf weeds can be more difficult. Sometimes if there is not a tremendous infestation you may be able to pull them by hand. Often times it requires the expertise of a trained landscape technician to come in with the proper herbicide and post-emergent control procedures. Handling of these chemicals can be hazardous and not effective if not used properly. That is where the Pugh's Earthworks professionals are experienced and are the best solution for complete Weed Control.     Pugh's Earthworks Weed Control Services The headquarters for Pugh's Earthworks is in Memphis, Tennessee.
