Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

I hired Seth Williams of Williams Lawn and Landscape for biweekly (every two weeks) lawn care service, and I have been extremely pleased with my interactions with Seth and his actual work. He has responded promptly to any concerns or questions I've presented, and each visit has improved the appearance of our yard. Whether you need basic or complex lawn care or landscaping, I highly recommend Williams Lawn and Landscape.

After having a bad experience with our previous lawn care guy, my husband and I called around to several lawn care companies and were not too impressed, then we found Mike. He is reasonable, has knowledge of his occupation, and provides excellent service. Mike came and got the job done in a timely manner and left the yard looking superb. Don't even bother with the bigger lawn care companies, this is the guy for the job. Thank you sir!

I needed someone to mow my front and back yard and I needed it the day that I posted a request on Thumbtack. Hodge's Lawn Care was prompt and courteous in responding and completing the job. He quickly sent me a quote and told me exactly when to expect him. He completed the job and did a great job mowing, trimming, and edging my yard. I would hire him again and recommend him to anyone needing lawn care services.

Daddy's boys lawn care has been amazing to me. I didn't think my yard could look so good! He was able to cut my lawn when I needed as soon as possible. He made my forest of a yard. Look completely different. I am very happy with the work he has done. Couldn't be more satisfied!

Daddy’s Boys lawn care was very responsive and made himself available in a short notice to take care of a leaf clean up in my yard. His prices were very reasonable and he was on time to do the job and did it efficiently while doing an excellent job. He even worked with me not being home and allowed me to pay via cash app rather than having to be there to have to pay him cash. I am very satisfied with their service and would definitely recommend and use them in the future.

We were so happy with our experience with Jesus and His services. He responded to our request for a quote within 5 minutes and was very polite when he did. He was able to come out that day to give us a quote and took little extra time talking with us about some other issues that he had expertise in. He showed up to our scheduled appointment when we expected him and got the job done in a timely manner while still paying attention to detail and being very thorough. We will definitely use One Way Lawn Care again. Pleasant experience!!!

I had a wonderful experience start to finish. My daughter is a fourth year med students. She and her roommates rent a home and have no time for yard work. I googled lawn care Augusta and found Thumbtack instantly. I entered the info on work needed. In less than 5 minutes, I had an email with a quote from Larry. We text back and forth during the work. He sent me photos. He billed on-line for easy payment. The young ladies could hardly believe that "they once again had a beautiful yard". I read his review and realized that he also does repairs. His next task is replacing a small window pane in the front door! Wonderful professional to work with!
