Pugh's Earthworks creates beautiful landscapes that can increase healing and well being!   Beautiful Hospital Landscaping Landscaping Health Benefits Beyond the obvious benefits of landscaping being aesthetically pleasing to the eye and helpful for the property value, there are studies showing that nicely landscaped hospital gardens have healing benefits for patients and staff. The calming effects of natural views can reduce stress and speed up the process of healing. A study conducted by a research team by the name of Cooper-Marcus and Barnes in the late 90's showed measurable benefits to both patients and staff. Their study showed that the hospital staff members were much happier and more productive when they had the ability to go outside and unwind. In addition, patients they interviewed said that the hospital gardens created a welcomed change from the stress of treatments and fear of illness. For decades it has been evident that the stresses endured by healthcare workers can be overwhelming. Extremely long hours, difficultly and fatigue caused by shift changes, lack of control or authority over decisions and emotional demands of the job have taken a toll. These conditions have in some cases lowered job satisfaction which has the domino effect of increasing absenteeism or turnover.  These consequences obviously have an effect on the care patients may receive. Studies have shown that hospital workers can find peace and tranquility by escaping to an outside hospital garden. This magnifies the need for landscaping expertise. Professional landscaping adds all of the necessary elements that make a garden one of splendor. Nature has a way of letting us escape to a world of calm and serenity. It is easy to recognize that a healthcare worked who is allowed the time to meditate and escape from a demanding profession can ultimately benefit those patients in their care. It also lowers the employment costs for hospitals as it takes time and money to train new employees. For the patients and their families, a beautifully designed and landscaped hospital garden has been shown to [...]

Although each insect control strategy is good, you need one that fits your type of garden and insect issues.  This is where it can help to have a professional assist you with your garden and lawn maintenance as they are adept at understanding the best inset control strategy to implement.

It’s Not Too Late to Plant Shrubs in the Spring

Pugh's Earthworks Spring Is A Great Time To Plant While spring is already in full swing, we know that here in Memphis and nearby the spring season has been a little delayed this year. We are now looking forward to warmer weather and enjoying the rest of spring. That's why it's not too late to consider what you may want to plant during this spring season. Shrubs and flowering shrubs are great ideas for your yard. No matter what size yard you have, shrubs are a great way to add depth, texture, and color to a garden. Location, Location, Location When you plan on planting shrubs, it's important to consider where you are going to put them. Consider any zoning or Homeowners Association rules as well as be aware of property lines. While you may love the shrubs you are planting, your neighbors may not. And, the last thing you want is to have to pull it out after all that hard work. Then, there are sunlight and shade requirements to think about. Also, check to see how big the shrubs may get to ensure you've picked a location that will accommodate how big the shrub will get. How to Plant Shrubs When you take the time to plant a shrub properly, it will grow faster. Plus, it may even enjoy a longer life. The mild temperatures in spring are the right time to give the shrub the chance to take root and grow. The soil is the right temperature to help the shrub. Shrubs are typically purchased in containers. The shrub has been growing in the container for some time, which also gives it a better chance of survival. There are numerous sizes of containers and shrubs that allow you to pick the size that is appropriate for your planting area. To plant a shrub, first, dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball. Make sure to loosen the soil around the hole so the roots can start to penetrate it and make a home for themselves. Remove the shrub carefully from the container and put it in the hole as soon as possible. The bare roots are vulnerable to light and air so they need to get back into the dirt as soon as possible. Lightly push the soil down around the shrub to get rid of any air pockets. You can also add water to settle the soil. This also helps the root ball to start receiving the water it needs to stay healthy. Add mulch around the shrub to start giving it nutrition. Shrub Maintenance Even after planting it in the spring, there is still much to do to maintain your shrubs. You'll need to keep an eye on your shrubs over the course of the first year to make sure they are getting enough moisture as the weather heats up. Signs of moisture distress include wilting leaves or hard soil. Continue adding water and mulch around the newly planted shrub. You won't need [...]

Pugh’s Earthworks Goes Paperless

Michael Pugh, co-owner and CFO of Pugh's Earthworks based in Memphis, TN, says he first began thinking about transitioning to a paperless office back in 2005. Since then the business has grown dramatically. Three additional branches have been opened. The volume of paper being generated daily—not to mention the inefficiencies tied to the handling of all that paper—soon spiraled out of control. Pugh reached his breaking point in 2010. "We were simply out of room at our main facility in Memphis," Pugh recalls. "We already had one entire office stuffed full of filing cabinets. Additionally, we had well over 100 three-ring binders with work orders from the past couple of years. We're talking about the type of paperwork you don't need to put your hands on every day, but still important enough that you don't want to shred it. I didn't know what to do. I was looking at having to pay someone off site to store our paper. That was tough to swallow." Pugh happened upon a company called Cabinet NG at a QuickBooks user's conference. He learned about a product called CNG-SAFE, a complete document management and workflow software product. His curiosity over the concept of paperless was revitalized.
