Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 do you look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes 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.

What should I do to my lawn in the spring?

Spring is the perfect time to start thinking about lawn care. The ground is recovering from a long, cold winter, plants are starting to grow, and the earth is ready to receive new seeds. When the weather starts to warm, the first step in your lawn care strategy is deciding what you would like to achieve and what you need to do to make it happen. Your next step is to start cleaning up. Rake your lawn free of decomposing leaves, trim back shrubs and branches, and clear out all the weeds. Once your lawn is cleared of debris, tend to your irrigation system. Test your system and decide whether any repairs are necessary. Now it’s time to nourish the lawn. If you opt to aerate your lawn in spring, the national average cost is $70-$100. Consult with your lawn care pro, as some regions benefit from only aerating in fall. If you have bare spots, you can overseed the lawn to encourage new growth. Next you’ll want to fertilize the lawn to ensure it grows in rich and lush. Professional fertilization services may range from under $50 to over $200, depending on your lawn size. If you have a bad weed problem, you (or your lawn care pro) can apply pre-emergent herbicide to prevent a weed outbreak. Make sure the irrigation system is routinely watering your lawn, and then enjoy watching the grass grow.

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.

What is included in lawn service?

Full-service lawn care companies typically offer a wide range of lawn care services, including mowing, mulching, landscaping, leaf removal, tree and shrub care, and more. 

Companies may offer additional specialty services, depending on your location and the type of business. For example, a company may provide seasonal maintenance services such as aeration, hedge trimming and weeding, while another offers pest control, seeding services and grub control. 

Contact the best lawn care services near you to see what kinds of services they provide.

How much is lawn care service?

Ensuring a lush, green lawn is so much more than simply mowing and watering the grass; it’s also pulling existing weeds and preventing future ones, fertilizing with the right nutrients, and coaxing new grass to grow in patchy spots. For many homeowners, a full-service lawn care company is the best way to maintain a beautiful lawn. The cost for professional lawn care depends on the size of the lawn and the services the homeowner chooses, as well as the location. For the typical suburban residence, the national average cost of full-service lawn care maintenance is $40-$50 per hour. Depending on the size of your lawn, that can cost you just $100 per month or more than $1,000 per month, but the average is about $350 per month. Most monthly services include a weekly cut, especially in the spring, as well as edging, weeding, and blowing the driveway, sidewalks and porches.

Reviews for Scottsdale lawn fertilizing professionals
Dan M.
Early October is when an AZ summer lawn is cut short, detached, cleaned up, over-seeded with rye grass seed, fertilized, and irrigation systems adjusted to help the seed take root. A few websites rate contractors in this business, and put bids out, i.e. on Thumbtack. RRR landscaping was one of the contractors my bid went out to for this overseeding on October 4, 2021. While the RRR profile says they have only two employees, they also claim to be able to “tackle any job big or small”. They also claim to be “trustworthy and reliable”. This was a compelling statement to me, as hiring a contractor that actually delivers what they promise is important. Ricardo, the owner of RRR replied immediately (please note the promptness of a reply here), and offered to provide me a bid. I provided all the specs Thumbtack asks for in the bid solicitation, elaborated a bit more on detail, and asked Ricardo to provide an estimate and respond to my inquiry on his process, from prep through overseed and fertilizer. He did that on October 8, his price was in lock-step with what I paid for the last two years for this job, and I provided photos of my lawn, my address with an invitation to visit the property to scope the job out in person, and asked to schedule the job with him. He never showed up to scope out the job, or explain any prep steps that we needed to know – and he acknowledged that. He agreed to do the job on October 13 afternoon, and he showed up with maybe two hours of daylight left at 4pm+. After initially walking the property to scope the job, he began a conversation that often leads to the “I need more $$ to do this job” that all consumers don’t want to hear….I Shared with Ricardo that I believe trustworthy and reliable means you honor your word – both of us, period. After starting and stopping his initial mowing/ scalping, and after a very minor bit of dethatching, he approached me and claimed he, despite his profile claim of tackling any job, could not do this job - because the grass was too green. A few of my neighbor’s laws were a similar faded green color and were scalped, detached and overseeded with a few days. Their winter lawns are already emerging beautifully! So, I guess it is doable… Well, it was apparent he was either not up to the task or did not allow enough time to complete it properly, so he left my property with the promise to return this current week to complete the largely unfinished job (an eyesore I might add). On October 15 I put another message on Thumbtack Message Pro (our means of correspondence) to schedule the completion of the overseeding. He did not respond at all. On October 18 I sent a friendly reminder that I’d like to work out a mutually convenient date to get this job done. Again, no response at all. On October 20 I posted another note asking for “the courtesy of an update”. Once again, no response. As you may know, on Thumbtack Message Pro, they show the time the contractor/ vendor you are communicating with was “on-line”. I checked this site daily, and the site showed that Ricardo was on it daily, so there is no way he didn’t see my messages were there - although he may have chosen not to read them for some reason. Not what I would expect from a trustworthy and reliable person that agreed to do this job. After being hung out to dry on this job, (please note the lack of promptness here), it is probably too late to restore my summer lawn for any meaningful period, so I will have to let my lawn go dormant – because I trusted Ricardo would tackle this job and stand behind his work. Not where I want to be, and perhaps not where you want to end up either… This is exactly what happened, no more, no less…
