Well-maintained backyard garden with beautiful lawn surrounded by green plants.

Cooler temperatures aren’t a reason to let down your guard against weeds. If you live in Georgia, weeds are a never-ending battle. They are looking for every opportunity to take over your lawn, including the winter months. When not controlled, weeds become “robbers.” These pesky plants steal water and nutrients from nearby grass, flowers and plants. If they are large weeds, they’ll also steal sunlight from your valued blooms. Some weeds even secrete a chemical into the soil that impedes growth of other plants. We must stay on defense against weeds year-round. For early winter, this means applying a pre-emergent weed control.

Do weeds really exist in winter? Absolutely. In fact, here are Georgia’s most common winter weeds to watch out for:

  1. Dandelion. Not just a spring season weed. These bright yellow flowers are hard to miss but dangerous for your winter grass too. Their well-known white puffs hold seeds that blow quickly and easily in the wind to create a quick spread of weeds if they are not tackled early.
  2. Annual Bluegrass. The most common grassy weed in the world. It grows quite fast and tall – up to 15 inches long! Its leaves are a vibrant green, and the blades of grass have short blunt tips. Each plant can produce roughly 100 seeds in as short as eight weeks.
  3. Henbit. A broadleaf winter weed that has green or purplish square systems. They are marked by hairy stems and egg-shaped leaves with prominent veins on the underside. Henbit can grow up to 16 inches high.
  4. Speedwell. Not an eyesore weed, but don’t be deceived. These blue petals with dark blue stripes are destructive. They grow low to the ground, then turn upright to flower with oval leaves growing opposite of each other.
  5. Chickweed. An “edible” member of the carnation family. Sadly, not a flower we want in our lawns. They tend to grow in clumps with their slender hairy stems and small white petals. Like most weed, it doesn’t take long before they will quickly overtake your turf.

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!
