White fence

Fences are a great solution for those who want more privacy on their property or who need to contain pets or kids. Unfortunately, far too many homeowners complete their fence installation without fully thinking their project through. While fences are primarily installed for their functional purposes, you should never overlook the aesthetic impact that this structure can have on your overall landscape design. In fact, fences are one of the most challenging landscape elements and should be selected carefully, as there are many different materials and layouts that can be used.

First and foremost, you need to determine exactly what you are expecting out of your fence. In other words, what level of privacy do you desire. Some fences can create complete privacy while others are only able to provide “suggested” privacy. You may even have different areas of your yard that you want different levels of privacy. Determining your desired privacy levels can help narrow down your fence choices for design and materials.

At Mobile Joes Landscaping, we can help your fence look like a natural part of your landscape while still offering functional benefits. In doing so, we often suggest blending natural plants and trees with hardscape fencing materials. Shrubs, trees and hedges are a great way to block noise and street lights from the outside while also fitting in seamlessly with the rest of your landscape.

In areas that you need a fencing structure, the height and materials matter most. It is important to match the fence height to the level of privacy – don’t go bigger if you don’t have to. Also, don’t use a fence as a wall if plants or shrubs will do the job. Of course, if you have kids or pets that you need to contain, a physical fence structure is needed. However, you’ve got options in how that fence will look depending on whether you use stone, metal, iron or brick. Lastly, don’t install a fence if you are just wanting to muffle or block sound; evergreens or deciduous plants will absorb noises much better.

Do you need help designing and installing a functional and aesthetically-appealing fence in your Georgia home? Call Mobile Joe’s Landscaping for professional help!

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!
