The certified professionals at Pugh’s Earthworks specialize in creating beautiful Retail Shopping Centers!

Landscaping & Lawn Maintenance For Retail Shopping Centers

Landscaping and lawn maintenance for retail shopping centers has always been one of our specialties. We have numerous shopping center accounts that we provide monthly grounds maintenance support for. Retail is a really prominent sector of the Memphis real estate market. The economy in Memphis is growing, and so are the number of shopping centers in the city. We have provided the landscape design, deployment and monthly maintenance for some of Memphis’ best and most innovative properties.

These properties also suffer more daily traffic and everyday “wear and tear” than most other commercial properties. Thanks to our years of experience working with these properties, Pugh’s earthworks is uniquely suited to provide a range of commercial landscape maintenance services.

Our prestigious list of commercial landscape maintenance clients includes some of Memphis’ top properties and property management companies. We’re honored to be part of keeping Memphis beautiful!

Retail Shopping Centers generate so much traffic from people. Having a center that is well landscaped will encourage shoppers to come back. The Pugh’s Earthworks team understands that and addresses all the aspects that are crucial to a first class Retail Center. Patrons have to enjoy the surroundings and want to revisit.

Some of the main elements of a well landscaped Retail Shopping Center are:

Lighting – A well designed shopping center will always have good lighting. Families and individuals that go shopping at night want to feel safe. During the design process, Pugh’s will carefully scope out parking lot and walk way lighting so that is aesthetically pleasing and creates a safer environment.

Conservation – Like all businesses, Retail Shopping Centers need to bring in profit in order to stay open for business. One of the crucial landscape design steps is the planning of sprinkler systems and drainage. Proper water conservation can save the business thousands in water costs and prevent infrastructure damage during times on heavy rains.

Plants – During the hot summer months, a properly landscaped center will include shade trees. This provides shelter for people to get out of the hot sun and can also lower costs of air conditioning for the Retail Center.

Cleanliness –  Shopping centers that are cluttered with trash, dead leaves and other unnecessary debris can pose unsightly surroundings. This detraction can lead to shoppers choosing a nicer center to go to. Pugh’s Earthworks maintains lovely Retail Shopping Centers for our customers.

If you are looking for a talented landscape design and maintenance firm to keep your Retail Shopping Center looking and performing its best, Pugh’s Earthworks is the firm to hire.
