Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do I hire the best landscaper in Denver?

You can find reputable landscapers in Denver by performing an online search. Online, you can easily compare landscaper profiles and ratings. As you’re comparing profiles, pay close attention to the customer reviews. These will give you an idea of the landscaper’s quality of work, as well as their professionalism, efficiency and pricing. 

Also, look for landscaping photos posted by both the customer and the pro. You’ll want to make sure you choose a landscaper who has experience completing the projects you want. For example, you might want landscape designers, contractors or architect who have experience planting perennials that are native to Colorado (windflowers, blue columbines, etc.), applying mulch, building outdoor fire pits, constructing decks and more. 

Once you’ve picked a few potential candidates for your landscaping project, look into their credentials. Find out if the landscapers have the proper license or certification. For example, the Colorado State Board of Landscape Architects regulates licenses for landscape architects in the state (but not landscape designers, installers or contractors).

Finally, gather free estimates from different landscapers and compare them. You’ll want to choose a landscaper that has the best pricing — but be careful not to sacrifice quality in the process.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
Reviews for Denver planting professionals
Thumbtack Customer
These guys are too new and not experienced yet. The initial communication was great, but the design and execution were not. They provide a 1 year warranty on all plants, but don't do irrigation so the 1 year warranty after planting something really doesn't mean anything when the plants aren't set up for success in the first place. Their prices are higher than anyone around as well. After planting for us they took our money and have not responded to any communications on our plants dying or irrigation follow-up .If you're looking for quality work and a team that knows what they're doing with experience don't choose Colorado Smart Services.

Half of the plants died within 2 months of the landscaping. They came out on site and told me that they would replace the plants. OK, great! This leads me to believe that they want to make this right. Then when I tried to schedule this, they told me they determined after the fact that they would not replace the plants because I failed to water them correctly. I watered the plants per their instructions - I wanted the plants to live, believe me, as each one was about $200! However, they sent me several rude and personally offensive messages saying things like I "am failing to take responsibility for my own actions". Haha. Who are these guys to judge me as a person after I gave them business? What happened to the customer is always right? I'm in the service business myself and you always need to be polite, and accommodating when a problem arises. It's just part of the business. Ridiculous. Buyer beware.
