These unprecedented times over the past several weeks has forced countless Americans to clock in more hours at home. Since this has coincided with the entrance of warmer weather in Georgia, many families are also spending more time outside in their own yards than ever before. How is your lawn holding up? If you have kids and pets, you may now be keenly aware of how durable or weak your lawn is under the extra foot traffic.

If there are areas of your lawn that are not holding up well and showing signs of premature damage, you can take action now. It is important that your landscape not only look beautiful, but that it is also equipped to handle the ways in which your family wants to use it.

Plan Ahead and Consider Your Options

We are at the beginning of spring, so now is the time to make some changes to your turf if you anticipate a turf issue. Whether you are seeing your pets and family members take the same shortcut across your lawn or you are planning to install a swing set for your kids, it may be best to change out your turf or even consider a new ground cover to accommodate high traffic areas.

Best Grass Types for High-Traffic Areas

When it comes to warm season grasses, there are types that withstand foot traffic better than others. In general, the two most traffic-tolerant turf varieties are Zoysia and Bermuda, which can be planted from May to September.

Alternative Solutions

If you have an area of your landscape that gets a lot of traffic but struggles to grow grass due to the elevation, lack of sunlight or drainage issue, then you may need to consider an alternative solution. Mulch, gravel and pavers are also excellent ways to cover high traffic areas. If you are landscaping around a swing set or children’s play space, it may be best to consider mulch or even artificial turf for better cushioning and safety.

Preventing Lawn Decline from High Traffic

Though Zoysia and Bermuda are more tolerant than other varieties, they are not invincible to damage and decline from excessive foot traffic. Therefore, it is important to do your part to protect your grass through these high-traffic months. One of the most common reasons for lawn decline in high traffic areas is soil compaction. To prevent soil compaction, consider periodic lawn aeration. It is also helpful to get the advice and recommendation from a lawn care expert.

At Mobile Joes Landscaping, we are happy to meet your lawn care needs. Our menu of services and large inventory of resources allows us to address all types of turf issues, including those that involve protecting and preparing high-traffic areas. Your outdoor space should be one you can enjoy to the fullest!

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!
