Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Is it worth it to hire a lawn service?

Hiring a lawn care professional can save you time and money on your lawn. Professionals know exactly which products to use to solve your lawn’s issues, such as removing crabgrass or controlling pests. Many lawn care companies are results-oriented, meaning that they come with a guarantee to provide results. 

If you’re DIY-ing it, you may save some money on costs. But you also might spend lots of money at the store that goes straight down the drain.

Is it worth it to hire a professional to mow your lawn?

Although hiring a lawn care company is more expensive than doing it yourself, it can be well worth the money. For starters, it saves you time and equipment maintenance, which may be justifiable financially. It also creates a more professional appearance. Plus, a pro can spot problems before they occur. This can save you money on expensive reseeding, aeration and other types of lawn repair down the road.

How much does it cost to have your lawn mowed?

Regular lawn maintenance can do wonders for your home’s curb appeal. Professional lawn care prices will vary based on the regional cost to do business and regional cost of labor, the size of your lawn, and any additional services you may desire such as edging or mulching. The national average for lawn mowing costs is $30-$50. Pros may charge an hourly rate, a flat rate or by the square foot (an acre contains 43,560 square feet). Square footage rates factor in the professional’s time, the use of their equipment, and the gas to operate the mower. Distance may also affect cost: If you live outside the company’s standard service range, you may pay an additional travel fee. Here are some examples of average prices for mowing and lawn maintenance:

  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
    • Bimonthly: $40 per service/$80 per month.
    • One time only: $45 per service.
      • Prices include mowing all turf grass areas; trimming grass away from fences, structures, trees, and lawn edges; and clearing or blowing all grass trimmings from driveways, sidewalks, curbs, etc.
  • Hourly rate: $25 per hour (including travel, equipment costs and labor).
  • Lot size:
    • Smaller lots in subdivisions: $35.
    • Half-acre lot: $50.
    • One-acre lot: $100.

How can I find out if a landscaper or lawn care professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To consult national guidelines on essential COVID-19 service providers and see whether a lawn care professional qualifies, visit a page on CISA’s website called Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This website contains 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors that you can search through. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure so you should also check your city or state’s government website.  

Can I use digital payments to pay for outdoor landscaping and design, lawn mowing, tree trimming and other similar services?

Many outdoor landscaping and design, lawn mowing and tree trimming companies will likely accept some form of digital payment instead of cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic will likely causing more businesses to adopt digital platforms like Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash and Google Pay.

Search professionals’ online profiles to see if they list digital payment services, and ask them about their payment policies during a consultation call.

Does a landscaper or lawn care professional need to enter my home?

Because landscaping and lawn maintenance take place outdoors, it is unlikely that these professionals will need to enter your home.

To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, practice social distancing at all times -- even with professionals doing work outside. You can minimize exposure during a consultation by using a video chat service. And when you pay, you can use a digital payment service like PayPal. Discuss strategies with any lawn mowing, landscaping, tree trimming and lawn care companies you may be considering.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a landscaper or lawn care professional when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a landscaper or lawn care professional, you can take safety precautions on the worksite by not making any physical contact, keeping at least 6 feet between you and the pro(s) at all times and using digital payment platforms instead of cash or check.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a landscaper or lawn care professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation call with a lawn care professional or landscaper during the COVID-19 pandemic, take advantage of digital technologies to avoid face-to-face exposure. When searching for lawn mowing, landscaping and lawn care companies online, ask if they’ll do a video call to assess the job and give you an estimate. You can also go over strategies for completing the job and conducting virtual payments to stay safe.

Do landscapers or lawn care professionals offer remote or virtual services?

Landscapers and lawn care professionals generally do not offer remote or virtual services. But if you come across a profile that states the landscaper is offering remote services, it’s best to contact them to see what type of remote work is offered. 

Typically, lawn care and landscaping professionals can perform many of their duties without coming into physical contact with clients. Message local lawn mowing, landscaping, tree trimming, and lawn care companies near you to schedule a video call and inquire about remote services.

How often should you cut your grass?

In general, weekly mowing is the golden rule. However, different lawns and conditions may require different mowing frequencies. For instance, if your grass is growing slowly due to dry conditions or a lack of sun, don’t cut it simply because a week has passed. And don’t cut more than a third of the length of the grass blade at any time. Also, ease up on mowing if the weather is going to be hot and dry, as the longer blades provide shade and can keep water from evaporating so quickly.

If you're unable to mow your lawn, consider hiring one of the best lawn care professionals near you.

I honestly feel like he cares about my lawn, I got quotes from others but they were way more expensive, and didn’t seem to know or put as much attention in my lawn as he does, I will definitely let others know about him.

Ortez did a superb job with our lawn, front and back. He also took care of the shrubs and is cleaning along our yard fence, which is quite overgrown. Great price for great work!

He was very responsive and was able to come and take care of my lawn the very next day after I requested services. The grass cutting was great, very well trimmed. The only thing is that the edging could be improved.

I was in need of someone to maintain my front lawn. Mr williams came out the next day, he had already given me an estimate online, and he actually did the yard work that same day. He is very professional and did an excellent job on my lawn. He did such a good job, We actually set up a schedule for ongoing lawn care that same day. He comes when he tells you he will be there and does a very thorough job. I definitely would recommend him.

I am not currently in the state where the lawn care is being done. I requested pictures or I’ll ask my neighbors. A gave a good rating because I assume they did a good job. If the work is not good then I will change my rating later. Or contact your staff. Thanks

This was my first time using Thumbtack and was very excited when I found Bill to do the job I needed. Most other places I had contacted only cared about setting up a lawn mowing service when only I had a few specific requests. After asking Bill if this could be addressed he came to do an in person assessment only 3 days after I first contacted him. We walked though the yard and set up a plan. The job was completed within the next week and I couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend using him for any of your yard needs.

I live in Washington DC now but I have property in Alabama. I had to get the lawn on the property cut down because it had not been treated in a while. I was worried because I thought I would not be able to take off from work to go down there & I also had a due date. I googled lawn care services and found Mr Williams' Thumbtack page. I explained my situation to him one night, two days later my property was cut & I had pictures to prove the beautiful work that was done. ALL this was done in 2 days, Mr Williams finished the job & was able to do it days before my deadline. To top it all off, what I thought would cost me a lot of money (that I really didn't have at the time) was nothing close to the numbers I had in my head. The fact that he was mindful of my due date, he was so professional & this was all done on my cellular device in ONE night really REALLY amazed me. I would've spent so much money on renting equipment & probably would've wasted my time trying to do something I had never done before. If it wasn't for Mr Williams I would've still been stuck at square 1.
