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.  

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.

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.

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.

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.

What is included in lawn service?

Full-service lawn care companies typically offer a wide range of lawn care services, including mowing, mulching, landscaping, leaf removal, tree and shrub care, and more. 

Companies may offer additional specialty services, depending on your location and the type of business. For example, a company may provide seasonal maintenance services such as aeration, hedge trimming and weeding, while another offers pest control, seeding services and grub control.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

My yard team was in major need of a lawn cleanup and service. The A-Team came in and took care of it. They cleaned all the leaves, weeds and trim all out of our overgrown trees and plants. I would recommend them for all your lawn service needs.

Hired Mo to mow, trim, and clean up my yard and garden area. He and his associate were courteous and professional. They did an incredible job! I look forward to using Mo's services again in the future.

This company is the best. The customer service is simply fantastic. They were professional, responsive, and nice to work with. I needed someone to clean up my overgrown yard and remove a boatload of poison ivy. I got three estimates and Lawn.com was by far the best. They were so thorough and their crew was great too. I recommended them to my father-in-law. Anytime I need additional lawn service and/or yard maintenance services, I will be calling Lawn.com. We really just can't say enough great things about them!

I hired Lawn.com for a one-time clean up for my yard and I was so pleased with the job they performed I decided to hire them for recurring lawn service :) These guys do a GREAT job and they are always friendly to me and my family. I will definitely be recommending them to both of my neighbors.

Jorge and Abel are both hard working, efficient, knowledgeable, and passionate in the services they provide. I informed Jorge that I needed lawn care ASAP, they met me the same day of our initial contact to survey the property, and finished the job the very next morning. In a period of only 2.5 hours they managed to collect about 4 months worth of fallen leaves, clean my driveway, mulch areas of my backyard, cut the grass, and groom all of the bushes and hedges in our yard. I gladly recommend their services to others!

I can't stress it enough, hire Kirby! He did AMAZING work on my yard, quoted me fast and got it done all while I was at work. Our yard was trashed from the previous people who rented our house, he picked up all the garbage, cut down our bushes and dead branches in the back as well as mowed, trimmed and cleaned up clippings, it was no easy task and he did a fantastic job! He messaged me right away with a quote, I called him and he was there the very next day. I have never dealt with such smooth and amazing customer service. Best of all his pricing is great, and he let us pay him through Venmo, so I didn't have to take off work to be there during the time he was working. I will be using him always now (if he is available and able) for our lawn care needs.

Hello my name is Brandon and I contracted lawn.com to service my lawn. This was the first time using lawn.com and it will definitely be the last! The day after they serviced my lawn for $63 I had the privilege of spending my afternoon Raking 6 trash bags full of dead grass that was left on my lawn! Not to mention, the uneven levels and patches left throughout my yard. Indeed the grass was cut but by no means would I dare say that it was done by a professional. Attached are pictures of the work I did after getting off of my job cleaning up behind their team. The pictures will demonstrate Two Large piles of accumulated dead grass shavings left in my lawn. The 6 trash bags that I put the grass shavings into. The pictures will also demonstrate how uneven my lawn was using my neighbor’s yard as a reference! Upon speaking with two customer service associates (one management) they both agreed that the work done was Unacceptable, and they were able to see that based on the pictures taken by there own team. One of them stated “They don’t know why they would have left my lawn like that and voluntarily reassured me that my grievance would be taken to upper management.” I was informed that I had to submit an email in order to have them address my concerns. After doing as I was I told, several days went by and I received no response! So I called to follow up on my email 4 days later and was informed by a manager that either he or his immediate supervisor would be returning my call with a solution by the end of the day! Of course that never happened. So after calling back the following day, I was told by a member of upper management it was nothing they could do to address my concerns as a customer unless I spent more money with them. In addition, I was told that they did what they were contractually obligated to do and I should be happy that they performed the services they did at that price because really they should have charged me more then the price THEY quoted me at. To top it all off I was quoted one price and charged another which I later had to dispute. In Closing, If you would like to pay a company $65 to get get a good work out so that your lawn is presentable lawn.com is a perfect fit!! The amount of calories you'll burn cleaning up after their staff will have you fit in no time!
