I've used MJ for over a year now and they are by far the worst landscape service I've used in my 25 years living in North Fulton. My lawn is much worse than when he started, I have poa-Ana throughout my Bermuda and his crew can't control it and have told me as much. I never had this problem before, I suspect they didn't apply the pre-emergent correctly. In the fall, instead of removing the leaves from my lawn, they blew them into the shrubbery and beds. MJ told me they always do that, and then they remove the leaves later! What a liar this guy is. No lawn service (except his) does this, it creates more work. His crews are lazy and will do as little as possible. Do yourself a favor and avoid this guy at all costs.

We chose Mobile Joe's because of the promises of what he would do with our front landscaping. (Now I agree with the other reviewer, he is a used car salesman) It was a nightmare of just trying to get them to start the project, never showing up when they said they would, changing the design without our okay, crappy small half dead plants, etc. He would then do drivebys to look at it, and I caught him a few times. We discussed our concerns and he said he 'would make it right'. This went on for 2 years, promises to our faces in front of our friends, 'he knew it looked bad and he wanted to make it right'. Well you can still drive by and see the crappy job he did. The bushes by our A/C unit that I specifically asked for something thick and lush to screen it....he planted something scrawny and small assuring me by the end of the year it would be completely screened in. Needless to say they aren't even as tall as the A/C units and are still scrawny and they don't block a thing. The 'lush cascading purple flowers' that were supposed to be all over the landscaping have never materialized. I could keep going but I hope you get the gist of what happened. Well over $10,000 for crap. Stay away and don't fall for his lines. It was never made right.

My husband and I were new to the area, and MJ sold us on the fact that he does "all of the landscaping in our area and knows everyone in the neighborhood." We quickly learned he was all talk. He put in terrible sod that had a virus and was not at all full (even other neighbors stopped by to make comments about the poor quality.) He told us he would make things right and take care of our lawn, but all he did was mow it and never did any treatments. Our lawn looks terrible and half dead and he never finished the job. Stay away from this company!

Left them a message as potential new customers inquiring about maintenance on our new lawn. They never called us. I certainly understand if they are busy and can't take new accounts, but they did not even return our call to tell us that. We had return calls from all other landscapers we interviewed except this one. At least be courteous and professional and return calls. That to me speaks volumes about their overall operation and the way they do business, so it is probably a blessing in disguise for us.

Most companies in this industry have respectful customer service. Mobile Joes is an exception to this rule. They were very rude and I get the sense they lack any sort of business maturity/savvy. There are so many other good options available that I wouldn't waste my time dealing with the hassle that comes with Mobile Joes.
