Fall Commercial Landscaping is a Critical Component to a Healthy Property, and we are the Specialists!

Pugh's Earthworks If you are like most commercial property owners, you have probably got spring and summer on your mind. Who does not love seeing their lawns turn green, or the first flowers of the season bloom? Though they are certainly beautiful, these seasons also bring with them all kinds of lawn care needs—like mowing and watering. But what about fall? As autumn approaches, your lawn will be under attack from a new set of enemies: leaves! That is why it is important to hire Pugh's Earthworks to perform Fall Commercial Landscaping to prepare for this time of year before winter hits. Here are some tips on how to keep your lawn looking good through fall and into winter: Fall Leaf Removal Fall leaf removal is a great time to get rid of dead leaves and debris that may be littering your lawn. Fall leaf removal helps prevent disease and insects, as well as providing a better look for spring. The Pugh's Earthworks team will do this by hand or with the use of a blower, depending on how much work there is. They will use a rake first to remove most of the leaves and then switching over to either a push mower or hand-held blower for cleanup after that. If there is still some stubborn debris left behind after raking, that is why hiring a professional team of Commercial Landscape Technicians like Pugh's Earthworks is so vital to a healthy commercial lawn. Fall Mowing Mow grass at the highest setting. Grass should be mowed frequently, but not too short. The ideal height for the dry season is 3-4 inches. We mow often, but not too short. If we are cutting your lawn every two days instead of once a week or longer, it may be time to adjust our mower settings so that each pass cuts less than an inch off the topsoil and root system--which will help prevent any dead spots from forming in your lawn. We often use a mulching mower to cut your grass. This will reduce the number of clippings left on your lawn, which can help prevent disease and keep it looking healthy. If we are using a bagger attachment, we empty it as soon as possible after mowing so that the bags do not weigh down our mower or get clogged with debris like leaves and twigs. Fall Watering Make sure your lawn is watered regularly. Even if it rains, you should still make sure that your lawn gets the equivalent of one inch of water per week from a sprinkler or hand watering. Water deeply, but infrequently--about once every four days during the summer months.  Avoid using any pesticides or herbicides on your lawn unless absolutely necessary. These chemicals can put a serious strain on both the environment and humans who come into contact with them.  Use mulch to help keep moisture in the soil around trees and shrubs. The best way to keep your trees and shrubs looking healthy is [...]

We Can Assist with Fall Commercial Landscaping Preparation!

Pugh's Earthworks The beauty of fall is that it is the perfect time for a little extra pampering. The leaves are changing, the air is cooling down and you are starting to think about Fall Commercial Landscaping Preparation. It is also a great time of year to go through your landscaping and make sure it is in good shape before the cold weather hits. While many homeowners hold off on this task until after Thanksgiving when they have family over for Christmas, there are several reasons why you should consider doing some gardening right now – or at least preparing yourself for this work in the future: Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks is a full-service commercial landscaping company that provides lawn care, snow removal and more.

Starting Fall Commercial Landscape Preparation Do you need to prune trees? If so, when and how? How should you fertilize your lawn and shrubs? What type of weed killer should you use on your lawns and shrubs in the fall? When should preemergence herbicides be applied for control of crabgrass, foxtails and other weeds that germinate in spring (as opposed to summer)? Are there any insects that need spraying now that would not have been around earlier in the season (e.g., spider mites)? Are there any pests (e.g., aphids, leafhoppers) that need spraying now that would not have been around earlier in the season? What is the best time to apply insecticides for control of ants and other insects? How should you control scale insects on trees and shrubs? How should you control the weeds that grow in between cracks in sidewalks and driveways? What is the best time to apply fungicides for control of powdery mildew on ornamental plants? How should you apply pesticides? Preparing Trees for Fall Prune dead or dying branches. Remove any leaves and debris from the ground beneath your trees, as these can cause erosion issues when it rains. Water trees well before the cold weather arrives, so that they have time to absorb as much water as possible before winter sets in and makes watering more difficult or even impossible for some time (depending on where you live). Watering trees in the fall will help them to absorb as much water as possible before [...]

Our Technicians Know the Best Grass for Mid-South Commercial Properties!

Pugh's Earthworks If you live in the Mid-South region of the United States, you know how important it is to have a lush and green property. Not only does it make your place look great, but it is also an indication of quality and pride. Grass that is well-maintained can also help with storm drainage and prevent runoff when there is heavy rain. This is why our team at Pugh's Earthworks Commercial Landscaping has compiled this list of some of our favorite grasses Best Grasses for Mid-South Commercial Properties: Bermuda grass Bermuda grass is an excellent choice for lawns because it has a fine bladed texture, which makes it easy to mow. It is also resistant to most diseases and insects. Bermuda grass requires watering during its first year in order to establish itself. Bermuda grass is a warm season grass that does well in the Mid-South. Bermuda grass is a fast-growing grass that needs frequent mowing. It can tolerate drought conditions and has good shade tolerance, making it an ideal choice for residential lawns. Bermuda grass is an excellent choice for lawns because it has a fine bladed texture, which makes it easy to maintain. And again, it is very resistant to most diseases and insects. Centipede grass Centipede grass is a good choice for the Mid-South. This warm season grass grows best in full sun and well-drained soil. Centipede can tolerate drought conditions, which makes it an ideal choice for commercial properties that experience dry spells during summer months. It also does not succumb easily to disease, making it a low maintenance option for your Mid-South property. Centipede grass is a low-growing option that can be used for ground cover or as an accent in your landscape. It has dark green leaves with a fine texture and grows in clumps from 6 to 9 inches tall. Centipede grass is a perfect choice for residential and commercial properties in the Mid-South. Its minimal maintenance is a plus and this grass will not require watering once established, making it a great option for areas that experience dry spells during summer months. St. Augustine grass St. Augustine grass is a warm-season grass that can tolerate drought and is low maintenance. It grows slowly but has a deep root system that gives it its durability in harsh conditions. It is ideal for commercial properties because it can withstand heavy foot traffic and provide year-round protection from weeds or other plants that may try to take over your lawn. St. Augustine will grow well in any climate where temperatures stay above 40 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and below 60 degrees at night, although it will grow better if they are closer to 50 degrees on both ends of that spectrum (40-50). St. Augustine grass can be planted in areas where Bermuda grass is already growing, but it will not thrive there. If you want to switch from Bermuda to St. Augustine, you will need to take out the old plants and do [...]

Summer is Officially Here so Contact Us Now to Install or Adjust your Commercial Lawn Sprinklers!

Pugh's Earthworks If you have a business or large property, you know all too well the difficulties and costs associated with maintaining it. Commercial Lawn Sprinklers are one of the most important aspects of any lawn care business. They keep your grass green and healthy, but if not maintained correctly they can be a big problem. Here we'll cover everything from commercial lawn sprinkler installation to their benefits for businesses. Commercial Lawn Sprinklers Commercial lawn sprinklers are used in yards that are larger than typical residential properties. These sprinklers can be set up to water a large area, which makes them ideal for commercial applications or large yards. Commercial lawn sprinklers are typically used to water large areas, such as parks, sports fields and school yards. They are also commonly used on golf courses and industrial sites. Pugh's Earthworks Pugh's Earthworks has been in business for over 30 years, and we have a reputation for quality work. We are a family-owned business that values honesty and integrity. Our customers appreciate our attention to detail, which is why they keep coming back to us year after year. As a full-service landscaping company, we offer a wide range of services. We can take care of all your lawn care needs, including mowing and fertilizing. If you have trees that need pruning or removal, we are happy to help with that as well. Commercial Lawn Sprinkler Adjustments Adjust the flow rate. Flow rates are measured in gallons per minute (GPM). If you have more than one sprinkler on your property, you will want us to adjust each one so that they all operate at similar rates. The general rule of thumb for commercial lawn sprinklers is to set them between 1/2 and 1 GPM higher than what's recommended for residential lawns. Adjust the spray pattern. Sprinklers come in many different shapes and sizes--some are round, others are square or rectangular; some shoot water straight out like beams from a flashlight while others create wide arcs from side-to-side across an area of grass or other plants. Adjusting the spray pattern is routine for our team. Typically, we turn the head of your sprinkler in either direction until you find a setting that works for you. To conserve we water, we frequently adjust your nozzles, so they shoot out water in a more concentrated stream rather than a wide arc. Commercial Lawn Sprinkler Water Flow When adjusting water flow, look for the following: The amount of water that is needed to cover your lawn. If you have a small yard and only one sprinkler, then this will be easy to determine. If you have an expansive area that requires more than one sprinkler, then it may take some time to get just right. How high should I adjust my sprinklers? The height of your lawn sprinklers should be set according to how tall or short your grass is so that they don't miss any areas while watering. For example, if there are tall trees around part [...]

You can have the best-looking grass in the neighborhood, but if it is too long or overgrown, it will not look nearly as good. Trimming helps keep your lawn looking healthy and green while keeping it free from weeds and pests that could affect its health. The best time to trim is during spring or fall when temperatures are not too hot or cold yet (but not right after a frost). Handheld trimmers work well on small patches of grass around flower beds or trees; electric models are better suited for larger areas like driveways where you need more power behind each stroke than manual devices offer. Trimming should be done regularly so that no one area becomes too thick with growth while others stay thinned out from previous cuts back down again -- this prevents uneven growth patterns across different parts of your yard which may cause some spots not being able to absorb nutrients properly through photosynthesis and could also cause problems with drainage. Regular maintenance helps keep your lawn looking healthy, green and free of weeds and pests that could affect its health. Pruning Services Pruning is a maintenance service that keeps your trees and shrubs healthy. It can be done at any time of year, but it is best to prune during the dormant season when plants are not growing. Pruning can be done by hand or with a machine depending on the size of your trees, shrubs, or hedges. Pruning removes dead or diseased branches to prevent further damage from insects and disease; it also promotes dense growth by removing extra shoots from branches that have grown too long, as well as removing suckers (sprouts) that grow below ground [...]

We have been providing landscaping services since 1992 and our team is dedicated to offering quality lawn care products at affordable rates. Here are some of our most requested commercial lawn maintenance services in Littlerock and all Pugh's Earthworks markets: Littlerock Arkansas Commercial Lawn Maintenance Lawn mowing. We can help you keep your grass looking its best with regular mowing, which includes trimming edges to give them a neat appearance and ensuring that all grass is evenly cut. Lawn mowing is the most important part of lawn maintenance. Mowing keeps grass healthy and helps prevent weeds, which can otherwise overtake your yard. Regularly mowing also helps control pests like ticks and mosquitoes, as well as keeping your lawn looking good by trimming off any dead or damaged blades of grass. In the spring and summer months, mowing your lawn weekly or biweekly is essential to getting the most out of your grass. Mowing your lawn regularly is the most important thing you can do to keep it looking its best. The best time to mow your lawn is when it is dry, so you do not run the risk of damaging the grass or clogging up your mower with too much moisture in the blades. Lawn fertilization. A healthy lawn starts with healthy soil, so we use fertilizer to increase the nutrient content of your soil while also promoting growth in plants' root systems. This results in healthier plants that require less water and fertilizer over time! We recommend using an organic fertilizer such as compost or compost tea (which contains bacteria). Organic fertilizers have better nutrients for plants than chemical ones do and are safe for children and pets. Lawn fertilization refers to the application of nutrients, such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. These nutrients help your grass grow strong and healthy. If you are not sure when to fertilize your lawn, there are several signs that can help you determine if it is time for some fertilizer. You should consider fertilizing if: Your grass appears thin or sparse in spots. This could be due to drought conditions or poor drainage (or both). Fertilizing will give the roots a boost so they will produce new shoots that will fill in these bare spots over time. We have just planted new sod on an area where there was no existing lawn before. Even even though it looks lush now with all those new blades poking through the soil surface after being laid down last week by our crew at Pugh's Earthworks Commercial Landscaping, we recommend applying some fertilizer within six months after laying sod down. This is because it will encourage root growth under each blade so it can support itself better against windstorms later down the road! Plus if you do not do this step then eventually those blades [...]

They allow visitors to easily navigate through cemeteries, as well as provide access for maintenance equipment and vehicles. Maintaining these pathways is essential for ensuring that your loved ones' final resting places are kept in good condition throughout their lifetimes, and beyond. Here are some tips on how you can maintain your cemetery pathway: Keep an eye out for weeds or overgrowth along the sides of paths. This can be caused by plants growing up from under ground level due to poor drainage, so make sure that any puddles have been cleared before they become too large (and impossible to remove). You may also want to consider installing gravel or mulch around tree roots if they tend toward growing up rather than out--this will help prevent erosion at those points where water collects most often! Make sure all signs are clearly visible, so visitors know where they're going without getting lost among headstones all day long! Hiring a professional landscaper or [...]

Although it may seem like a lot of work, it's not hard to do and can actually be fun! Lawn maintenance includes watering, mowing and fertilizing. Watering your lawn will help keep it green and healthy by allowing the roots to grow deep into the soil where they can get more nutrients from decaying organic matter. Proper watering also helps prevent fungus and other diseases that affect the grass blades themselves. Mowing regularly will keep vegetation at an even height so that water penetration into the soil is efficient. Fertilizers should be applied in spring before new growth occurs (usually March-April), then again in late August through early September before winter sets in Sod Installation Sod is a great way to add greenery and privacy to your property. Sod also provides color, texture and an opportunity for you to create an outdoor oasis. The sod installation process includes rolling out the pieces of sod in rows, cutting them with scissors where they meet other pieces, removing any grass clippings left on top of the soil, watering thoroughly and then keeping an eye on how quickly new roots grow through it so that you can trim them back at regular intervals (no more than once per month). Flower Installation Flower installation is a great way to add color to any business, whether it’s inside or out. There are many different ways flowers can be installed depending on your needs and budget.
