Spring Flowers

As we close out the month of May, you’ll find that Georgia temperatures are staying more consistently warm. Your grass is likely greening up and flowers are showing their brilliant buds of color. As you see your landscape emerge from its long winter nap, don’t wait too long to start its upkeep. Along with a greener lawn and budding flowers comes weeds and other threats to your spring landscape.

Here’s a quick checklist of things you can do this month to keep your lawn in top shape:

  • Change the direction or pattern each time you mow your lawn to reduce soil compaction and turf wear.
  • Begin fertilizing your turf grasses.
  • Supply your planting beds with fresh mulch to preserve moisture, discourage weeds and cool the underlying soil.
  • Perform a final pruning when plants have leafed out to remove winter damage. Replace plants that suffered severe damage.
  • Prune spring blooming shrubs after they finish flowering and climbing roses after their blooms fade.
  • Snip off dried foliage of early spring bulbs (such as daffodils).
  • Check roses, ornamentals and vegetables for aphids and powdery mildew.
  • Apply fungicide for black spots or other diseases found on plants and flowers.
  • Keep an eye out for bagworms on junipers and other conifers.
  • Plant your summer annual (such as petunias, marigolds and impatiens).
  • Make sure your irrigation system is working properly and on schedule.

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.

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!
