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.

Thank you, Sergio, Juan and your crew. Our backyard looks wonderful. Rodriguez Gardening came to our home promptly, they gave me a quote for landscaping and trimming our backyard. I found it was a fair and reasonable so I decided to hire them. They came the following Monday morning and got right to work. The trimming was very professional and not overly done, the bark laid out nice and they cleaned up without a trace of leaves or branches. I would definitely hire them again for any landscaping project I have in the future.

I hired Elite Riverside to redo a job that was done incorrectly by another landscaper, and the gentleman that came out was professional and very nice. He was booked all next week but due to the fact three of my newly installed plants had dies due to improper sprinklers by another landscaper, Elite took the time to come out on Sunday which he doesn't even work on Sundays and install the drip system that should have been installed in the first place and even stopped and replaced the three plants that had died. Awesome job, explained everything to me, and I was well pleased.

Greg and his crew removed our sod from front and back yard, installed new sprinklers, dug trenches for better drainage and now planning the yard. I would recommend Greg Carter and his crew to anyone looking for landscaping needs.

My parents were in need of someone to finish their backyard after being left high and dry by the workers who started the project. Luckily I came across Tim and his company Valley Springs Landscaping. He was a complete professional who quickly responded to and was accommodating my parents needs. The entire process was smooth and quick and my parents couldnt stop raving about the work that was done. I myself was amazed as customer service and quality of work seem to be a lost art in todays world, so it was refreshing to have such a great experience with Tim. I myself am looking at getting some work done in my own backyard soon, and will definitely be contacting Tim for his services, and I reccomend anyone else looking for quality landscaping do the same.

Elite landscaping did a great job on our front yard and for a reasonable price. They were easy to communicate with and followed through on the job. We had new grass installed, they fixed our sprinklers, and also added a portion of drought resistant area with rock and plants. Great work. I would definitely hire them again.

My husband and I hired Isaac and his team at AB Landscape to create a Xeriscape (low water, low maintenance) design for our front yard. We are so happy with his work and had a great experience working with him! We did the majority of the demo ourselves to save some money, but his quote was fair and the end project was exactly what we wanted. While we had a good idea of the direction we wanted to go on the overall design, Isaac executed it wonderfully. He had great suggestions of plants, rocks and general design ideas and incorporated our requests with every step. He was responsive and timely with his work and even completed the job faster than expected. We would recommend him to anyone and will use him in the future if another landscape project comes up.

Couldn't be happier! Rhett and his team did exceptional work in our yard. He was easy going, ready to propose and implement brilliant ideas and solutions, considerate, attentive listener, has a great eye and aesthetic, is committed to his work, over delivers, and was also a joy to have in one's space. I would never turn to anyone else for your landscaping/fixing needs if you have the choice.

Although we did not hire this company Dmitry was extremely professional and punctual with his communication and patience with us as we weighed our choices with the investment we made for our front yard landscaping. He gave us a few different ideas and estimates for some ideas we had. The scope of our work was more then we had planned as far as our budget. Thank you Dmitry for your time and patience with us!

We had worked in our backyard when we first moved in since our builder had left it a mess, but it was in need of professional help including adding and leveling soil so it drained properly, installing sprinklers and sod. Riverport Landscaping gave us the best bid, not overselling and coming up with ideas that did not cost any more, but really improved the appearance of the yard. They kept the job site clean, and were very communicative, helpful and accommodating. Mark worked hard, and finished when he said he would. I will recommend them to others and would hire them again.

The best advice Jo gave me was to ask the gentleman who landscapes the neighbor's lawn to maintain ours once he completed our project. Why? Because that guy told us all the things that Jo took shortcuts on from the low quality weed block to the cheap mulch, and incorrect placement of the water drip system which he just installed himself, brand new. (couple of plants died, some are still stunted in growth). When I had questions throughout the process and after, he took a long time to reply. Yes, reply as in a text message. He will text -- takes days to reply -- but never answers a phone call. Also failed to mention that he would pass us the bill for his Square payment processing fee. Upon "completion" we have since had all the bark he used as well as weed block, replaced. Not even one year later!
