Weed Control

Weeds can be a problem in Georgia lawns all year long. However, there are certain times of the year that you can get a jumpstart on controlling these pesky and unsightly growths throughout your turf. In fact, if you live in North Georgia, applying herbicides during the month of March or before the soil temperature reaches 55 degrees, is ideal for helping to prevent annual weeds such as crabgrass and goosegrass.

Stopping the Life Cycle of a Weed

Weeds are just like other plants in your yard. They grow through the process of photosynthesis, which means they rely on absorbed sunlight to make internal food reserves to be used in less ideal environmental conditions. There are various types of weeds, but many perennial varieties grow their root systems during cool weather. Therefore, by applying man-made products, we can interrupt the growth cycle of a weed and eventually kill the plant.

Understanding Weed Control Products

There are countless weed control products on the market. It can be difficult for the average homeowner to understand which one to use. In most cases, weed problems should be addressed with a product that can be absorbed in any stage of the plant’s growth. You’ll notice that some weed killer products are packaged as a “one-two punch” that includes both a pre and post-emergent herbicide. This simply means that the weed’s growth cycle can be impeded before and after it has grown enough to be identified as a weed.

Pre-emergent herbicides treat the entire yard. They are often products that are used alongside a water hose as you are irrigating your grass. A pre-emergent is designed to stop new weeds from growing. On the other hand, post-emergent herbicides infiltrate the germination process of weeds that are already fully grown. These types of products are commonly found in liquid form, and they typically require multiple applications to be effective. Finally, if you have concerns about the safety of using chemical herbicides on your lawn, there are also natural recipes and techniques that can be effective for controlling weeds.

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!
