Things to consider include: First, your landscape should reflect your business and brand. If you are touting sustainability and environmental activities, then your landscape needs to show that. Or, if your business offers relaxation, then create a Zen-like space. Second, think about how people will engage with your business and how you can offer them spaces to stay longer. This is especially important if you are a retail business. Adding amenities like benches, chairs, tables, and other outdoor spaces that invite them to remain on your property. Next, you'll need to think about where and how people approach your business. Use natural objects like trees and shrubs to line the path that takes them straight to your company's front door. Then, it is important to create an attractive space with your landscape that is tidy, offers shade, or provides a refreshing feel. It will make people want to come there rather than turn them away. Finally, consider your architecture and how your commercial landscape should coordinate with that look. You will need to look at color, texture, shape, and style. Overall, another important consideration for commercial landscape is how you can conserve water and energy through your design.  For example, if you add a green roof to your building helps with controlling water run-off as well as lowers heating and cooling costs.

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 [...]

At Pugh's Earthworks, we have numerous credentials held by our talented team of certified landscape technicians. One such credential and field of study is in Agronomy. Agronomy is the inclusive science and technology of growing plants and land restoration. Originally this science was focused mostly on the agricultural aspect of plants as food and fuel source. Over the years it has evolved and is much more inclusive of all areas of plants and the environment. When a person studied the field of Agronomy they will be exposed to plant genetics, plant physiology, soil science and even meteorology. One area that is important in any plant growing endeavor is soil science. Knowing how to analyze soil content is vital to the selection and continued fertilization of plants and grasses. Soil contains two basic types of nutrients. Those like in economics are macro and micro. Macronutrients found in different soil regions are things like nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium and sulfur. Micronutrients are zinc and boron. Another important and obvious responsibility of an agronomist and a landscape technician is soil conservation. Our planet has amazing resources but they have to be protected. Over time soil can be damaged and eroded by wind and water. Professionals in the landscaping field as well as agricultural have to be thoughtful in their planning in order to preserve the integrity of the soil in which plants are growing. For future generations to come, things like disposal of pesticide buildup and water pollution have to be managed properly. In summary, when [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Every job we do is backed by our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee. Pugh's Earthworks recommends fertilizer mix should be changed for summer months! 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 [...]

Landscaping Should Be Deemed Essential Service

Landscaping & Lawn Maintenance Should Be Considered Essential Services Pugh's Earthworks Customers & Others This May Concern: NALP is the national trade organization representing the $82 billion landscape industry in the United States. Member companies specialize in lawn care, landscape maintenance, tree care, irrigation, and water management. Landscape professionals work daily throughout the Nation servicing homes and businesses to maintain their landscapes, sustain the environment, and take pride in our communities by enhancing and maintaining healthy green spaces. As a Nation, we are all struggling to combat the rapid transmission of the coronavirus “COVID19,”and we understand and acknowledge that in some instances, drastic steps are being taken, including shutting down businesses deemed non-essential. We are communicating with you today to assure you that landscape services are essential services and must continue during any emergency declaration or quarantine scenario. Landscapers are partners during this critical time in assisting in the protection of public health and public safety. Without the landscape industry conducting these valuable services, we will undoubtedly see increased instances where people may be harmed or become sick from other illnesses compounding our already stretched medical resources. Recently, Counties in and around the greater San Francisco metropolitan area enacted a temporary “lockdown.” We anticipate other municipalities and states to take similar precautionary steps. The “lockdown” issued by these counties exempt “essential services,” pertinent for the landscape industry is the below portion of the exemption: ix. Plumbers, electricians, exterminators, and other service providers who provide services that are necessary to maintaining the safety, sanitation, and essential operation of residences, Essential Activities, and Essential Businesses For the foregoing reasons, landscape services should be deemed “essential.” Landscapers are protectors of public health performing essential treatments to lawns and green spaces to reduce the transmission of dangerous and deadly diseases through pests like mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas. Landscapers protect property and maintain greenspaces that could otherwise jeopardize public safety. Unkept fields and green spaces increase the chance of injuries. Crime rates are increased in areas where green spaces are not maintained. Tree removal is also a critical function of our industry to avoid damaging homes and their families. Landscapers play a critical role in boosting morale and mental health during a difficult time for our Nation. Without landscape services fields, parks, businesses, and homes will become overgrown and unkept, which can have dramatic psychological effects on the mental and well being of our communities. Spring is a critical time of year for our industry due to the abundance of growth in the spring that requires prompt maintenance and care. Any halt or delay in landscape services during this time of year only magnifies potential safety problems and become much more difficult to maintain later in the year. Lastly, our industry is taking aggressive steps within our organizations to stop the transmission of COVID-19. Because our industry functions outside this greatly reduces the chances to come into contact with other individuals. Within the industry, strong policies are being put in place to maintain social distancing with both clients and within our teams that are working in the field. We are all in this together, and the Landscape industry stands with our public officials to stop the rapid transmission of [...]

It's also based on what type of weather conditions you have. experience. Fertilizing your lawn when it is not expecting it can be problems for your lawn.  Based on years of experience, here are some tips on when and how to fertilize your lawn. Why you should fertilize in the late summer or early fall By late August and early September, your lawn really needs some help recovering from the heat and minimal water. That's why nitrogen-based fertilizer can really help the grass recover and promote new grass growth before the fall. Caring for cool-season grass and warm-season grass Warm and cool-season grasses need to be fertilized differently. For warm-season grasses, your lawn needs a more robust amount supplied during the late summer months. This works for lawns with Bermuda grass or St. Augustine grass. If you have cool-season grasses, including varieties like bluegrass or fescue, you need to postpone fertilizing until late fall around October or November. At this point, use a phosphorous-based fertilizer to help get it ready for winter. Tips for fertilizing your summer and fall lawns Before fertilizing, there are steps you need to take to make sure you optimize the results. First, don't fertilize if you are still in a drought. Make sure the lawn is fully watered or the fertilizer will burn the existing lawn. Don't forget to fertilize the edges of the lawn and focus on even distribution of the fertilizer across your lawn by moving slowly across it. Finally, don't over-fertilize because the grass will grow too quickly. If you need assistance, contact us today to let a professional handle all your commercial lawn maintenance needs.
