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.

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.

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 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.

At the beginning of June we found ourselves in need of a lawn service company after the company we had used for 4+ years suddenly stopped doing business. Subsequently, and after meeting with several companies, we hired Mowses Lawn Care to perform our weekly lawn service. Daniel was extremely prompt in meeting with us and has sought our input each week since being hired to ensure our expectations are being met. If he finds that due to weather or other reason his team is unable to be at our home on the regular scheduled date, he will so notify us. The Mowses team is very professional, engaging and courteous. They have met our expectations for service and lawn care quality and I highly recommend them even after a very short length of interaction.

I purchased a new house and needed to find a lawn service fast as the grass was already tall. Need For Green Lawn Service came right out the same day I requested a quote. They even came out 2 days later on their day off ( Saturday ), to make sure my lawn was cut. They were very friendly and professional. This service is a green service, they use all electric equipment which not only is better for the environment, but it is much quieter. I work from the house and I have to take calls from the house. It is nice that there are no super loud gas powered mowers and trimmers while I am on calls. I would recommend Need For Green Lawn Service for anyone who need reliable quiet lawn care.

The guys were very professional and their work was the best I have ever experienced. They worked very hard and my lawn looks beautiful. It didn't look this good when I first bought the house, which was supposed to have been "professionally" done. They cleared every weed, cut the shrubs, planted and mulched. I would highly recommend them for all lawn care! Thank you, Delwin!

I hired ARBS General Services to care for the lawn on my rental property. They were quick, courteous, and did such a nice job that one of my tenants went out of her way to text me to let me know! I'd definitely recommend them.

We have a decent sized corner lot...so plenty of land to take care of. Hill's Lawn & Property Maintenance Group are a:WAYS Doing a great job. They gave the most affordable bid for the work that I was looking for. Not only is my lawn being mowed, edged, trimmed, blown...but hedges, bushes are being maintained along with flower beds, and herbicide sprayed for weed control on sidewalk, driveway, and flowerbeds. I am beyond impressed. Donald is very pleasant to work with as well. This is a WIN-WIN situation with Donald's company.

After discussing our lawn care needs with Mr. Martin, he spent about four hours getting our trees reined-in, and then did an excellent job of mowing the grass and trimming weeds. We are happy to have found someone reliable & professional to take these chores off of our hands.
