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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a landscaper or lawn care professional when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a landscaper or lawn care professional, you can take safety precautions on the worksite by not making any physical contact, keeping at least 6 feet between you and the pro(s) at all times and using digital payment platforms instead of cash or check.

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.

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.

Mr. Avery was timely but I am not sure he understood my needs and expectations. He mowed my lawn but I am interested in lawn maintenance always as help with shrubs, trees and weeds. I want my lawn and property to look well manicured. he did not address my concerns without prompting.

Robinson team did an amazing job to mow my front yard. It makes me feel fresh and I’m definitely satisfied with their services. They are highly recommended and worth to ask for lawn cutting services.

Juan came by the house and provided a quote before I agreed to hire and schedule an appointment. He was very courteous and did an excellent job mowing my lawn, cleaning out the flower bed and shrubberies. He also sprayed weed control and set me up on a bi-weekly schedule for lawn maintenance. He had a convenient way to pay and I am very pleased with the results!

Bob responded right away and came out the same day. He also arrived exactly when he said he would which was great. He mowed and edged our front lawn and blew the grass off of the driveway and it looks great. I would recommend to anyone!

My front and back yard had not been mowed in over a month, so it was looking pretty rough. We also had a pile of old limbs in the front yard that had been there for weeks. I contacted C&C/Boys to Men services on Monday to describe my "project", and they arrived the very next day. They mowed, edged, and trimmed bushes that our previous lawn service provider never even touched. They even took the pile of limbs, all for a very reasonable price. I was VERY happy with the work they did, and have signed up for their bi-weekly yard maintenance. I HIGHLY recommend their services!!

The job was incomplete even after contacting the company with a promise ti correct the issue.. I paid to have my lawn moved and only75% was mowed. Sorry i would not refer this company to anyone.. After speaking with the "owner" he agreed and reassured me the job would be completed the very next day...i have yet to see them complete the work i paid for..needless to say....i will not patronize nor refer this company again. Thanks Thumbtack

Sent way too many loooong messages. I had requested that the job be done on the 13th or 14th, but they made it the 15th, then later they had to change it to the 17th. I requested lawn mowing, edging, and blowing debris from driveway and patio. They said blowing was not one of their services. But then in the estimate they included blowing. Also their price was double what I’m currently paying and they charge tax on top of that. I canceled the service as I found someone to do it on the 14th. I don’t like the Thumbtack system of communication. And now I have yet another app on my phone.
