Your burning questions: answered

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.

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.

Pressure cleaning the house, there were no issues. They did a great job. Hired them for lawn care and never showed. Stated he had a Dr. appointment he forgot about and wanted to come days later and asked if that worked for me. I informed them it didn't work as I needed the lawn taken care of and never got a response. Several days ago sent another message asking if they were going to respond or come out and again I was ignored. It's my personal opinion they care about the pressure cleaning work and not the lawn care side. Looking for another company.

The first thing that I noticed about Bowes Lawn Care, was the over the phone, professionalism. They were very respectful and responded quickly! The second thing that I noticed was the quality of work. Logan cut my lawn, trimmed around my fences and removed all of the weeds around my home. It looks fantastic! If you are looking for someone who is dependable, respectful, and knows what they are doing when it comes to lawncare, you needn't look any further!

WOW!! Can not believe anyone could give this company a bad review! Brandon (the owner) came RIGHT out to my property the very day after I called for an estimate. He was very professional & made sure to pencil down all of my wants & needs. Brandon, along with his crew came out on the scheduled day we agreed upon & did EXCEPTIONAL work. They over exceeded what I asked of them & got it done in a timely manner, as well as cleaned up nicely too. I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing any lawn or tree maintenance. Trustworthy, hard working, professional boys. I will defiantly be calling them for much more work in the future as well as having them doing my monthly lawn services from now on as well. Thank you Ferguson Lawn Care, so much!!

If you're looking for a landscaping options then stop right here! My yard was full of weeds what felt like overnight after some bad storms. I had no idea where to turn and really wanted to have my yard done the same day which I was sure was not possible. I stumbled on to Thumbtack and searched landscaping options. I messaged 10 companies. When I messaged John Little before I had a chance to hit my lock-screen and put my phone down John had responded. 35 minutes later he was at my home, half done with the damn front and back of the lawn. John went out of his way to listen when I called and cut my grass as low as it can go for my puppy which is something I mentioned in conversation not having requested it. I was so blown away, I have John coming to my home every week and I actually insisted on paying $20 more on my monthly bill than he had asked. Quality services are hard to find but quality service with exceptional people is almost impossible. Only almost impossible because John Little Lawn Care LLC have made the impossible possible. - Petar Andjelic

I needed my grass cut - In a hurry! Jan responded promptly to my inquiries on Thumbtack. I made him aware that this was not likely going to be a regular "Gig", I had a mower but it was in the shop - and when I went to pick it up found the shop had closed early for the Memorial Weekend! And I had Guests arriving the next day! Jan promised he could get this taken care of this for me, although it may have to be later in the afternoon or early evening. He kept me posted throughout the day on his progress. Jan turned up, as promised, early evening. All I had to do was tell him where the property line was and how high I wanted the grass cut. Then off he went about the task, without me needing to make any more comment or request. He cut the grass, weed wacked all the trees and shrub areas and edged the flower beds and drive way. Great Job Too! And all for a very reasonable price. I was so happy with the result, I paid him almost Twice what he asked for! Guess that should say it all right there! Yes, I would recommend Jan (Yawn) Leithe Lawn Care - to anyone needing this sort of service. Very Happy Customer.
