Landscape Care For Every Season

Pugh's Earthworks Tennessee's Landscape Maintenance Services Address Seasonal Needs Pugh's Earthworks provides commercial landscape design and maintenance services throughout Tennessee, including Memphis, Jackson, and Nashville. We also design landscapes and service lawns and landscaping in Little Rock, Arkansas.  Our services include seasonal maintenance for lawns and landscape areas for residential and business clients. As you know, each season brings specific weather patterns and temperatures that all impact your lawn and other landscape features. Depending where you live and the weather that year, these seasons could be pleasant or they could bring harsh conditions like severe cold or heat, humidity, rain and flooding, snow and ice, or even drought. To help your clients ensure that their lawns and landscape features look their best, the professional team at Pugh's Earthworks changes the care they give your landscaping as needs change due to temperature and other weather conditions. For example, we are still in the thick of winter, which means we add in services like snow and ice treatment. This means we can help clear everything from driveways and parking lots to walkways to your business. When it comes to spring, we change our services and start preparing lawns and landscapes for a season of growth. With potential rain on the way, we also adjust irrigation systems. Our planting services reflect what grows best in that climate throughout the entire year with a focus on more drought-resistant plants and landscaping. In summer, our focus again changes to address heat and humidity. Again, we adjust irrigation systems and start prepping the landscape for the fall where weather conditions start to drastically change. There is a lot of work and expertise that goes into understanding the changes and needs of the landscape and lawns during each season of the year. Many on our team have studied these changes and have the experience to understand the best approaches, landscape design, and plant choices to use for each season. As a result, you can enjoy a beautiful landscape the whole year round!

Pugh's Earthworks The Best Commercial Lawn Services in Memphis As summer arrives, it's time to start thinking about your plan for ensuring that lawn stays looking as lush as it has all spring. There are many things you can do to help your lawn is green and beautiful despite the summer heat and humidity. Here are five of our best summer lawn care tips: Feed your lawn with fertilizer during the early part of the summer. This gives your lawn a fighting chance to make it through heat, intense sun, and potential drought. The nutrients in the fertilizer help feed the grass blades, strengthening them to withstand what summer hits it with. Be wise with summer lawn watering. This means about one inch of water per week when it's very hot as well as deeper, yet less frequent, watering. Also, water early in the day to cut down on evaporation. Mow regularly but don't cut the grass too short. When your grass is taller, it can grow deeper roots and help shade the surrounding area while also becoming more grass tolerant. Therefore, mow it at two to three inches. Also, sharpen mower blades to cut more precisely. Consider changing your lawn to accommodate high-traffic areas. Do you have that part of the lawn where everyone seems to walk across because it's a short cut to your business? Consider installing stepping stones or another type of walkway here rather than having a lawn that shows signs of wear and tear. Know summer lawn bugs and issues so you can treat them immediately. This includes summer insect infestations from insects like chinch bugs, fire ants, fleas, and mosquitoes. Or, your lawn might experience fungal problems like powdery mildew and brown patch. There are also grubs that appear in the summer, so know how to treat these or get a lawn care professional to help you.
