Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.

Lawn care service was performed on 5/30/15 by Andre Bias and his team. Mr. Bias and his team arrived within the timeframe promised and worked diligently to ensure the lawn was completed to my satisfaction. I found Mr. Bias and his team to be very courteous and professional at all times. Mr. Bias was open to any critiquing needed, for which I feel confident will be taken care of, and therefore plan to utilize the lawn care service of him and his team again. I would recommend the Quality Care Lawn Services of Mr. Bias to others.

Lawn Love kept rescheduling, sometimes citing weather and sometimes not. The positive reviews on here references people that I never spoke with or met. I get the sense that Lawn Love is like “uber for lawn care.” Boy necessarily a bad thing, but it was impersonal and I had no control and over or prior contact with the person who provided my service. He parked on my very busy street rather than the easily accessible side street 40 feet away/one house down. This caused a traffic problem and a conflict with a neighbor. He left bizarre and unsightly circles in my lawn, as well as uneven bits. It looks like a child in a bumper care rode over my lawn. He also ran over a part of our swing set - a piece of bright red plastic that was 12x18 inches. He either didn’t see it (which shows a lack of attention) or didn’t care to stop (also bad). Normally, we’d have picked everything up in our yard but we didn’t know he was coming until ten minutes prior to his arrival. I submitted my complaints to LawnLove directly and got unsatisfactory responses - that he’d look out for the red piece next time. (No need - it’s destroyed, chopped into little pieces) They also credited me $10 toward a future service but we will not use them again. As it was, there’s a different pro lined up to service my lawn - again, the uber model. I’m looking for a provider who will send them same person each visit and who knows how to cut a lawn well. Lawn Love did not provide this to me.

Nilton and his team provided service in a high quality. Nilton not just mowed lawn but also would have some helpful suggestion on how to maintain or edge or take out some wild grasses.

He has not mowed the lawn twice per month as promised. He was there only 2 times since June 30 per tenant report. The last cut, the grass was so long, that when he left it on the lawn, it created dead spots, and clogged up the drains. His lawnmower broke my cleanout and security sign in the front. I have been paying for service twice per month and have not received that service. We started out in a good place, but have ended badly. Louise Berry

Mr. Brown solved a huge problem for me! I had knee surgery and couldn't cut my grass for six weeks. My backyard was a mess. Within two hours, Mr. Brown had cut my yard down to size which relieved a ton of stress that I was experiencing as I watched my grass grow higher and higher. Brown's Lawn Care and Services was a pleasure to deal with. I have now arranged to have Browns Lawn Care and Services as my primary yard care professional!

He was punctual, very friendly, personable and did an outstanding job for what my lawn needed. I've lived here more than 12 years and no other person I've ever hired has remotely come close to doing as fantastic of a job as Mr.Carter did. I would readily recommend him to anyone who needs excellent lawn service, my name is Marie Holloway.
