Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

Is hiring a landscaper worth it?

A landscaper is worth it if you don't want to invest a significant amount of time and effort into planting, trimming, raking, weeding and performing other operations on your garden or yard. Hiring a landscaper to perform regular maintenance in your yards and complete bigger projects is valuable if you’re looking to sell your house. A professional landscaper can make your house more appealing to potential buyers. 

Some landscapers may perform maintenance duties — remove leaves, mow lawns, trim trees and shrubs, etc. —  but they can also help you bring bigger projects to life. This may include adding a misting system, an outdoor fireplace, water features, artificial turf, a patio and much more.

What should you look for when hiring a landscaper?

Landscaping can be costly — though it usually pays off in curb appeal and home resale value — so finding a landscaper who is worth the investment is important. When hiring a landscaper, look for proven success with the type of results you want. For example, if you know you want a drought-tolerant yard, research websites, reviews and portfolios that showcase beautiful drought-tolerant yards that the landscaper has installed. In addition to relevant experience, you’ll want to find a landscape contractor who has good client reviews. Good communication skills are another important quality in a landscape contractor, since everything from plant selection to hardscape installation needs to be discussed and agreed upon. A landscape contractor who is reliable, easy to understand and able to listen to what you want will help make the process seamless and enjoyable.

How do you find a good landscape architect?

Hiring a landscape architect is an investment in your home. Landscaping can reduce water bills, improve your home resale value, add to your daily living experience and significantly boost curb appeal. A landscape architect will draw the designs for your new landscape; you’ll want to hire a landscape contractor to carry out the plans. Many companies provide design-build landscaping services, with a company architect creating plans for your vision and the landscape contractor executing the vision. With the proper academic background and licensing, a person can be both landscape architect and landscape contractor. Here are a few tips for finding a great landscape architect:

  • Research online portfolios and find several landscape architects whose work interests you.
  • Read online reviews of client experiences.
  • Research whether the landscape architects you are interested in are currently licensed and in good standing with the licensing board, and check whether any complaints have been issued against them. Each state will have their own searchable database. For example, you can search for California landscape architects via the state’s Department of Consumer Affairs.
  • Request bids from your selected landscape architects.
  • Hire the one you like the most, taking care to have a clearly written contract outlining scope of work.

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.

Reviews for Laurel landscapers
Wei-Pei C.
Bin and his team were so good and fast with the landscaping and gardening we requested. We had a horrible backyard covered in weeds and construction debris that they were able to clear up and replace with child-friendly mulch, and they constructed a beautiful trash enclosure and landscaping paths and other features that improved the look of our home tenfold. We would highly recommend their services to anyone who needs yard care.

Bin and his team did a excellent job. Our landscaping needed a lot of help and his team came in got it all cleaned up quickly. They went above and beyond what we were expecting. Will definitely continue to them.

David and his crew were excellent. They did an outstanding job, were prompt, communicative, transparent, and friendly. I would 100% hire them again for any future work, and very highly recommend them to anyone looking for landscaping work.

Updated review: Bin did a great job on the initial cleanup of our yard, and I thought I'd finally found a landscape company that was reliable and did good work. We hired him to do monthly yard cleanup on this and another property. His crew did a not-so-stellar job on the first monthly cleanup and we communicated some issues. They did a similar not-so-stellar job on the second monthly cleanup and after that he stopped responding to any emails or phone calls. Was pretty disappointing. Have since found someone else who I've been very happy with. Original 5-star review: Bin did a great job with our yard. He and his crew were incredibly thorough with the cleanup and maintenance of all the landscaping, and they did a great job removing two trees in tricky locations. Will definitely use them again.

Levin was incredibly responsive. He was able to come out quickly and did a beautiful job cleaning up areas of my yard that have been neglected for years. I had an outdoor photo shoot at my home and he transformed my space. I had several people comment about how beautiful the landscaping was. I would highly recommend Levin. He’s very talented and professional.

We hired Steve to landscape our yard. I've been planning for the project for a year now and had very high expectations. Steve and his crew exceeded them! The yard used to have several large palm trees, acacia trees, and a huge banana tree. Although the trees were removed before he started, he and his crew had to remove large tree stumps. In addition, he also did the following: - Built 4 feet tall stone retaining wall - Leveled through ground in front and behind the retaining wall (they had to remove A TON of soil) - Planted 4 trees and several smaller shrubs - Set up irrigation drip system - Poured gravel over rest of the yard This is a lot of work! Steve and his crew worked tirelessly for a week. They had a great attitude and took pride in making sure every task was done perfectly. For our next landscaping project, we'd definitely ask Steve first!

Zak was one of the first to respond, that can always be a pro or con if the person isn’t qualified or do good work. Zak however was THE BOMB. Showed up on time, took quick direction, understood exactly what I wanted and did it super quickly at a very fair price. I will be hiring him 2x month for winter leaf clean up. I feel like I won the lottery finding him. I’m a mom of twin toddlers who got too busy to do yard clean up and have a lazy husband and a super expensive quarterly landscaper to train the original design they put in which I might cut back to 3x year because Zak is so good. I’m reluctant giving such a good review because I’m afraid he will book up but he deserves it!!
