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 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.  

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.

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.

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.

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.

Adrian's work is more than just landscaping- it's artistic and clearly a labor of love. I was blown away when I saw my yard after Adrian finished. It far and away exceeded my expectations. The "Before" and "After" is incredible. Adrian is extremely responsible, punctual and professional. Highly recommend. Update: I used Adrian again for the same service and no surprise-I could not be happier. His work remains impeccable. He is extremely punctual and highly responsive. He is a master of his craft and the utmost professional. I would not think of using anyone else for yard/ landscaping services. Highly recommend. Ten Stars!!!!

I was looking for a lawn care service that could blow leaves out of my yard. I had an accumulation of leaves and I wanted to have my lawn looking nice for the New Years. I came across Greg and Son’s lawn service. After reading all the positive reviews on Thumbtack, I decided to contact the owner Greg. Greg and his assistant Zachary came out and explained that my yard would look better manicured if he mulched the leaves instead of just blowing the leaves...which is I wanted to have done. After they finished with my yard, it looked amazing. You could tell that Greg takes pride in his work and wanted to make sure that I was satisfied with the finished product. I will definitely use Greg and Son’s again for my lawn care needs.

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!

Whoa. I’ve had three other lawn care providers at my home before Reuben. They do not compare. Reuben and his wife (King and King) are so so fast that you’d expect to see terrible work. But their work is the best I’ve seen out of four service providers - and at about the same cost. Incredibly efficient, very professional (from their equipment to their apparel and, most importantly, their demeanor). I’m so glad to have found them and hope to work with them for a very long time. Our yard looks beautiful!!

Limitless Xpression has gained a customer for life and an advocate for the brand. Professionalism by both team members was outstanding. The responsiveness to questions and pure accuracy and respect answering questions was unbelievable. As someone who operates in a professional setting on a daily basis, Limitless is a business that has everything in order and make their customers very happy. I posted an ad late at night and Christian responded to the request immediately. The job was posted on early Monday morning and the task was completed less than 12 hours later and surpassed our expectations. Limitless Xpression completed the task of cutting down the landscape trees and hauling them off in less than 1 hour. After returning home, there were NO messy limbs in the yard and the work was textbook. I had neighbors to immediately request their services after the completion of my project and they were available to assist. I will recommend Limitless Xpression and will also be a loyal customer.
