Jose did a fantastic job on my lawn. He was able to fix my lawn minutes after giving me his initial assessment. I definitely recommend Jose for your lawn care.

Great response time. A crew came to my home the day I called and performed lawn service at my home at a fair price! Thank you Stay Green & Clean Landscaping Service!

Thumbtack was great. I was contacted promptly by Chris Marich of Urban Gardener. I needed some lawn sprinklers repaired. Chris kept in contact with me periodically letting me know when he could do the job. That he was on his way. Really great service. And Chris is an extremely thorough and a very likeable guy. I am very pleased with both Thumbtack and Urban Gardener. I would definately recommend both of them.

Mr. Ruiz and his helper did a good job of mowing our lawns. He checked our sprinkler system to ensure it was putting water on the lawns where it needed to be. He replaced some broken sprinkler heads. I was pleased with the work that was done. He will return to do lawn care again. Thank You.

My irrigation pipes burst and caused water to drain from underneath my driveway next to my lawn. Mateo Pedro (MP) was quick to respond when I posted the job and he met with me the same day at 5pm. He dug up part of the lawn and provided a preliminary assessment on his own time. MP was kind, courteous, and professional. He quoted me a flat price that was very fair considering the work that had to be done without knowing the entirety of the problem. He took the time to evaluate my irrigation system and provided tips on improving lawn maintenance. I contracted with MP and he showed up a 7am the next morning and fixed the problem that day and after completing the repair he did a great job of cleaning up. I would definitely recommend MP if I have any additional handyman work in the future. Great Job Mateo!

I am very pleased with the work George and his crew completed last week. I wanted to replace my dying lawn and two brazilian pepper trees with a landscape that conserves water yet it still has some green in it. We were able to keep most of the existing plants and added some more. George offered great suggestions regarding the outline of the yard and the choices of materials. He took the time to share his plans with me and made sure I was happy with the choices. He and his crew worked for several days to complete the work. They left the yard clean and beautiful. I was so pleased that I hired him to do my backyard.

I needed a clean up of a badly overgrown garden that included a medium to small lawn with lots of crabgrass some hedges and an apex 250 sq ft slope with shrubs and ivy and some early daisies. It was a mess. I wanted a cleanup and a regular maintenance service set up. I called several gardners. Some through thumbtack. Alex was one, he responded immediately; set up an appointment to see the job. He was very knowledgeable. He listened to what I wanted and asked follow up questions. He gave me a very reasonable bid on the spot. His maintenance service bid was a little on the high side compared to the other gardners I saw. But he was very willing to take on the slope and keep it up so I felt the price was fair. I am so glad I decided to hire Alex he and Adolfo his helper have done a great job on the clean up. I am very very happy and am sure that the regular maintenance will be great too. Do yourself a favor call Alex.

Israel showed up for the estimate promptly and was very professional. He listened to what I wanted and offered me more than I had asked for, for a reasonable price. His crew showed up the following week on the expected date and left the lawn in very good condition. They cleaned up neatly afterwards. Since then, Israel has maintained excellent communication with me about recommendations for repairs and further service. I have appreciated working with this landscape professional as most I have encountered are not this professional.

We are thrilled to have found Francisco! Reluctantly and with much trepidation, my extremely picky husband agreed to hire a garden service. - "No one will manicure my lawn the way I like it!" After a couple of negative experiences, we heard about Francisco Ramos. Francisco with his work quality, professionalism, garden knowledge and expertise, and work ethic are all the things my husband and I were looking for in a garden service. We have the greatest of confidence in all the work he does for us always going above and beyond from tree and shrub trimming, slope clearance, rose pruning, and most importantly, manicuring our lawn! We couldn't be more pleased and highly recommend Francisco Ramos Garden Service!

Gabe came out on time when he said and was very thorough with asking what I expected for our lawn service. He's only been with us less than a month so far but I see a long relationship due to us being very satisfied with his work, doing what he said he would do and following up. So far so good and we're looking forward to having the nicest lawn on our block and I think Gabe and GK services will do just that. A lot of gardeners in our area speak broken English with Spanish being their first language so there's a communication problem. That is not the case with Gabe he speaks perfect English at least as good as I do and remembers what you've discussed. Thanks Gabe... GREAT job so far.

Finally!! I have had a few experiences with landscapers who come and promise you a certain level of service...give you a quote...and do a great job the first visit...an "OK" job on the third visit...and by the time you are on their schedule they cut your lawn in 15 minutes and do nothing else. But so far Mike has not only delivered on what he promised but has already gone above and beyond by texting me lawn & landscape improving pics and ideas that he sees because he notices they match MY specific front and back yard layout and ideas we talked about. Meaning, he really listens to what you say upon your meeting with him and then goes out of his way to think about how he can improve your property as if it were his! All on his own initiative!! Which is all I have ever wanted in a landscaper since I myself do not have that forte. So if you are just looking for someone for basic yard care he's already great; but moreover if you want to spend your money on hiring someone who actually seems to become invested in you as a client - then he is exceptional!

Great work. I had John come out for a one time mow, edge, and trim. He went above my expectations and did the job right. John mowed the back twice to get the grass to the right height as it was over grown. The bushes and hedges were the same and This guy did stop until there where right. Based on my one encounter, I would have this guy over for a beer! He doesn’t cut corners or rush as if he had somewhere else to be. Honest, fair and humble. People like JOHN are few and far between. Just hiring him now because you will not find a better business to talk care of you lawn care needs.

The communication is great. I always get a response when i call. The service has been very good. I have used 4 other lawn service companies in the last few years and Lawn Love is the best . Pricing is very reasonable in comparison with the others and for the quality of the service. Highly recommended.

I’d highly recommend Hector for your landscaping/gardening needs. I called him last minute to mow the lawn, trim hedges/bushes get rid of a lot of weeds that had grown. He was responsive and very professional. The yard looked great after he competed the work.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
