Trimmed lawn

Spring is just days away. What are you doing to foster healthy, vibrant growth from your landscape this year? While it is important to apply fertilizer, take care of drainage issues and set up your irrigation system, many lawns can also benefit from core aeration. Depending on the type of grass you have (warm or cool season), lawn aeration can be performed in the fall or spring. In general, lawns need aeration once per year for optimal growth!

What is Core Aeration?

After the winter months, it is common for your soil to become hardened or compacted. There is little growth during this time of year, and your turf is less used and nourished. However, spring grass cannot grow in this type of thatched soil. Your lawn simply can’t breathe this way. Core aeration is the solution. During aeration, a machine is used to pull core soil plugs from your lawn. When performed during the spring, lawn aeration offers the following benefits:

  • Reduces thatch buildup.
  • Helps prevent insects and disease.
  • Allows water, air and nutrients to invade the soil.
  • Fosters healthy root growth.
  • Enhances soil microbial activity.

The same benefits that apply to fall aeration can apply to spring aeration. However, it is important to perform this task when the ground is not frozen or too wet to maximize the effectiveness. Spring is an ideal time to aerate your lawn if you have grass that goes dormant during the winter and wakes up for vibrant growth during the hot weather months of spring and summer.

Bill O.

Joe Archer has built a great family business by treating his customer very well. They do a great job, are consistent, are reliable and are friendly. When we've had big family events, Joe takes as much pride in how our yard will look as we do...came by twice a week before a wedding to make sure things looked tops. Uses reel mowers, not rotary, to have the most even look. Use Mobile Joe!!!!

Michael DePadro

I have known Joe for over 10 years. In the past 10 years Joe has completed 3 large landscaping projects for us. My wife and I would never consider using anyone else as Joe does excellent work is dependable and is easily reached if you need to call him for anything. We can highly recommend Joe for any landscape design project or for excellent on going lawn care. Joe's team uses reel mowers so your lawn looks like a golf course fairway when his team is taking care of your lawn maintenance. I have recommended Joe to several friends who have used Joe for small landscape projects and for landscape projects that went into the six figure range. Everyone that I have referred to Joe has been very pleased with his work so give him a call if you are looking for a dependable landscaper.

David Borel

I was interviewing and getting proposals from landscaping companies for a full front yard renovation at my home. Joe by far seemed the most knowledgeable and experienced of the companies I spoke with - and the friendliest. He laid out different options to meet my budget. His prices were great as well. His team did a great job, showed up on time, and cleaned up where you could not even tell they were there - other than a complete beatiful new front yard landscape with stone walls, new plantings, grass, and trees. Looks awesome! Thanks Mobile Joe!

Mark French

Mobile Joe's Landscaping has taken care of all my landscaping needs for many years - and I highly recommend Joe and his team! Mobile Joe's has designed and implemented various landscape install projects as well as performed all the maintenance at each of the three homes I've owned in north Fulton beginning in the early 1990s. I have no doubt that Joe's expertise in both hardscape and softscape has added significant value to my properties and I'm extremely appreciative for all the attention to detail and great execution that Mobile Joe's Landscaping is known for here in the Roswell / Alpharetta area. These guys truly care about meeting and exceeding customer expectation!
