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.

We had previously used Cape Home Maintenance on a scheduled basis until purchasing our own equipment. Recently, we were going to be away for an extended period of time and was in needed of a short term contact for lawn service. Reached out to Cape Home Maintenance and setup a short term plan for lawn care. Work was completed as agreed to. Appreciated their consideration and professionalism. Plus, they sent me a picture of my property after completion!

This company wasn’t very good at communication or keeping up with the maintenance of my lawn. I reached out to them in March because they were suppose to come for the second time to take care of my lawn. Apparently their lawn mower went down which is completely understandable but there was no communication of this. They eventually came on the 25th. I’m scheduled for every 2 weeks. I ended up having to reach back out to them asking about my lawn. It was then I expressed how unhappy I was about their lack of communication. They told me I signed up for services that happen every 7-10. I then expressed to him that 10 business days from the last service had passed. There was never an apology or some type of discount. During that conversation (Sunday) I asked when they could service my lawn. My text message wasn’t returned until that following Tuesday. I decided to sever my ties with the company.

This company is amazing and I would recommend them to anyone. They get you on a schedule so you know every time they are coming to take care of your lawn. It is never a wait to see when they come and on different days every week. They are like clockwork. They were very responsive when inquiring about their services.

I was looking for a one time cut, however, Miguel and his crew did such a good job, I will request to hire them full time. Miguel came the NEXT day to cut my lawn for the first time. He faced a challenge (high grass) and handled it with extreme care and professionalism. I would highly recommend Miguel and his crew.

BM landscaping are absolutely the best lawn care specialists I've had the pleasure of doing business with! In just a few short hours, they turned my backyard from a weeded, overgrown mess, into a yard that is coming back to life. Thank you BM crew, I will recommend them to anyone that's in need of quality mowing, or like me, a total "yard lift"

This company started out strong. Everything was fine when they cut my grass on Mondays. Then they started cutting on Wednesdays and from then on it got progressively worse. First they broke my lawn ornament with the weed wacker and at the same visit knock down my wind chime on the patio. I noticed all the bottom of my plants were getting nicked by the weed wacker also. Then they trimmed all my bushes and put the clippings in my recycling bin. The office staff was good about that and had them come empty the bin. Next I planted a new vine and put landscape plastic and landscape stones around the base of it. They left it alone for the first week but the second week they cut down my brand new baby vine. I was so upset. After I let the office know about that they gave me a credit for the vine and then just stop coming to cut my grass. Seems like they can't handle it when they make mistakes and you tell them about it. No worries. Good thing there are a lot of other lawn care companies in town.
