Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.  

How do I hire the best landscaper in Atlanta?

You can hire the best landscaper in Atlanta by searching for one online. Start by comparing ratings and customer reviews among local pros. If you find a customer review with photos of the pro’s work, check them out to see what types of landscaping the pro excels in.

Also, make sure the landscaper or landscape architect you hire is properly licensed in Georgia. You might find this information on the pros’ profile, or you can try searching for it online

After you’ve narrowed down your search for a landscaper to a few Atlanta professionals, reach out to all of the candidates. Give them information about your landscaping project. For example, are you planting native plants and trees, like Southern magnolias or Georgia asters? Do you want to build a stone patio or walkway? Do you want to install an outdoor fireplace, misters or a water fountain? By giving the landscapers as much information about your project as possible, they can give you an accurate cost estimate.

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.

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.

Start contacting landscapers near you to get free estimates and start planning your project today.

What should you look for when hiring a landscaper?

Landscaping can be costly — though it usually pays off in curb appeal and home resale value — so finding a landscaper who is worth the investment is important. When hiring a landscaper, look for proven success with the type of results you want. For example, if you know you want a drought-tolerant yard, research websites, reviews and portfolios that showcase beautiful drought-tolerant yards that the landscaper has installed. In addition to relevant experience, you’ll want to find a landscape contractor who has good client reviews. Good communication skills are another important quality in a landscape contractor, since everything from plant selection to hardscape installation needs to be discussed and agreed upon. A landscape contractor who is reliable, easy to understand and able to listen to what you want will help make the process seamless and enjoyable.

How do you find a good landscape architect?

Hiring a landscape architect is an investment in your home. Landscaping can reduce water bills, improve your home resale value, add to your daily living experience and significantly boost curb appeal. A landscape architect will draw the designs for your new landscape; you’ll want to hire a landscape contractor to carry out the plans. Many companies provide design-build landscaping services, with a company architect creating plans for your vision and the landscape contractor executing the vision. With the proper academic background and licensing, a person can be both landscape architect and landscape contractor. Here are a few tips for finding a great landscape architect:

  • Research online portfolios and find several landscape architects whose work interests you.
  • Read online reviews of client experiences.
  • Research whether the landscape architects you are interested in are currently licensed and in good standing with the licensing board, and check whether any complaints have been issued against them. Each state will have their own searchable database. For example, you can search for California landscape architects via the state’s Department of Consumer Affairs.
  • Request bids from your selected landscape architects.
  • Hire the one you like the most, taking care to have a clearly written contract outlining scope of work.

We hired Elmer of Georgia Landscaping to complete a repair of a long tire mark and to replace plants. The absolute best experience with a landscaping company possible. Elmer solved an annoying issue very quickly, affordably and professionally. If you need professional sod repair or general landscaping contact Georgia Lanscaping we highly recommend their services.

I had a great experience overall with Lucio and his company. As someone that’s not very knowledgeable about landscaping, he took the time to really explain every aspect of my front and backyard lawn issues. I didn’t take great care of my front yard so he was able to reinvigorate my curb appeal and get our landscaping back on track. Highly recommend and plan to use him again in the future for all my landscaping needs.

I hired Moon's for tree removal and landscaping. They are excellent! Quick, knowledgeable, professional and high quality job. Pricing is fair. Although I haven't had the tree removal yet, I have used them for landscaping and also a project in my backyard that included laying stone and waterproofing.

NB Landscape did a wonderful job of getting my lawn in shape. I recently moved into a home and the backyard was overgrown with ivy, debris, weeds and dead trees. NB Landscape came in and cleared it all up so that I can now walk in my backyard effortlessly. NB Landscape is very professional, dependable and responsive. They really know their stuff which made me feel great in trusting them with my lawn care. Noteworthy as they were mowing my lawn neighbors walking by were complimenting how amazing it looks.

I seriously cannot say enough good things about Adrian/El Maguey Landscaping Co. He was prompt, professional, fast, and very reasonable. He offered suggestions about layout and got right to work. What a treat to have all the sod we ordered installed perfectly, quickly, and for a good price! We look forward to using El Maguey for more landscaping in the future.

Check out these before and afters! Loudermilk Landscaping did an incredible job trimming the bushes, removing all the limbs, refreshing the mulch, and repositioning the rock wall! They raked leaves and removed them all. While here, they gave great suggestions for other areas in our yard for water drainage, flower beds, and tree trimming! Tomorrow they are coming back to lay pine straw in our front yard. I’m so glad we used Loudermilk Landscaping!

Adrian is has been a complete pleasure to work with!! I own a 1940 Bungalow and it was clear when I bought it that the previous owners did not take of the landscaping. I hired a landscaper who mixed Bermuda sod with St Augustine grass & my front lawn was a nightmare!! Adrian came, dug up tilled the ground in one day, added new Zoysia sod & new shrubs for character, and it looks AMAZING!!! I'm EXTREMELY pleased with his team and his work...
