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.

Hired & fired within a month. 1st service the tech said he mowed the lawn, didn't, then showed up 3 days later saying he was confused by the app & went to the wrong house. Have been told for other services that they have to be rescheduled due to not enough techs. My HOA doesn't care about the company's schedule, they only care that it's done. I'm looking at fines bc my lawn is out of compliance.

John communicates well and does what he says he’ll do. We get weekly lawn mowing and the yard looks nice and clean when it’s done. I asked for some additional work to be done and John provided a quote, a timeline and did what he committed to. I’m very happy with Ramos Lawn Care!

John came in with another co-worker and took care of my lawn, front and back, trimmed and cleaned up. He is phenomenal. You should hire him for your lawncare needs.

I really appreciate Wellington and his team, they took care our lawn as their, they were very professional I recommend and also I will have them every two weeks, thank you guys.

I really like John from Ramos lawn care. I was in need of a 1 time cut. The brand new lawn front and back was put in Sept 2020 and now that it’s time to cut it grew like gang busters and I hadn’t turned on my sprinklers yet. I tried mowing but it was too hard. I called John at Ramos and he came out the next day (thanks to a cancellation) and brought both lawns back to a normal level. His prices are great and he was very professional. He made sure I was happy. I highly recommend his company.

I needed my lawn mowed pronto after buying a new home. I contacted Greg, he responded immediately. He didn’t just mow and drive away, but took care in edging, weed eating, raking and blowing. I will use him again.

I requested weed service. Nothing else. Instead I got a full lawn service quote of 950. Anyways. Never mind … I took care of the weeds myself. This service sucks. I better not get charged anything . Gonna delete my app. I’m better off getting somebody with the specific requested yard service via Next door. Ridiculous

I contacted Than Lawn care after moving from out of state and not having my mower. Bella quoted me 35 dollars for a one time cut and it would gradually cheapen for routine mowing and edging. They did my front and back yard which was and is exactly what I expected. I am considering using them on a more routine basis as the experience was pleasant. They are responsive, professional, affordable and punctual.

I highly recommend Johnny Green Thumb Lawn Care. They came in and did a bang up job in record time. We are moving from our current house, and needed mowing, leaf removal, and a general clean up. Our landlord will be thrilled with the state of the yard. John was great to work with, and we got everything setup online quickly and easily. I must say the process was painless. Thanks to John and his crew for great work! I will be calling him again when I need yard help.

Juan (John) Ramos is the WORST in time management and VERY unprofessional. From the very beginning showing up 1.5 hours late for the estimate, rescheduling 3 times for the 1st lawn care, then not responding to confirm that 3rd reschedule that he suggested, even after 2 contacts from me. Was the job too much (not according to your comments made to me during the estimate)? Did you regret the price you quoted me? Is communicating as a professional business owner expecting too much from you? I would NOT RECOMMEND this person or business. I attached his business card so there’s no mistaking who this review is about.
