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.

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 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.

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.

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 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.

Stewart took on a big job with my property and handled it extremely well. He came to our appointment ready to work and when he left I could tell the job had been worked by a Lawn Care professional! He was hardworking, courteous, fair and the kind of guy I am glad to hire and recommend to others. Stewart made the hard job of finding a new service easy for me. I just cannot say enough GOOD things about the job he did on my complicated lawn. If you are looking for a great professional Lawn care service, HIRE THIS GUY:)!!!

I just hired Sun Chase and so far my experience has been EXCELLENT. Very reasonable price and he has taken care of everything I've asked for to a "T". I decided to look for a different lawn care service this year because the service I used last year was decent but I always had to remind them of certain tasks. Not so with Sun Chase -- it's "set and forget". He takes care of all my lawn care needs without reminding and does a FANTASTIC job. The quality of his work was outstanding and he's not over-priced like so many. Very fair and reasonable. Very happy to have found a permanent lawn service!!

My wife hired Jones Lawn Care to do our yard today, as I've been working a very hectic schedule. She was trying to do something nice for me. We have company coming this weekend and she knew I'd be pushing it trying to get the yard done before they arrive. She had her own stuff to do and I always do the yard. She said he was a very nice guy and I have no doubt he was, BUT I woke up expecting not to have to do yard work. Not the case. He didn't edge or weed eat anything. She said she saw him use the blower, but there was still grass all over the driveway, patio, and sidewalk. He obviously didn't use a lawn mower with a bag because I just got done picking up all the chunks of grass. Most companies at least rake that up if no bag system. He even missed a large area of grass with the mower in the backyard. Very, very disappointing. In his profile he states that his basic package is $30 and that it includes edging. He definitely didn't edge anything. He charged her $50 and I still had to do all of the tedious edging, weed eating, and blowing it all off. Took me over 2 hours, which is typical and fine except we paid someone else $50 to do it. Perhaps he was just having an off day, but it was unacceptable and very unprofessional service in my opinion. If I had been here I would have told him there's was no way I was paying $50 for the job he did but that if he wanted to finish, I'd gladly pay it. My wife said he seemed to be having a rough day and perhaps that is the case, but he should have rescheduled if so. The only good comments I can make is that he arrived on time, was very quick to respond with a quote and got out here within 24 hours of contact. That's impressive. Or it was until I saw the yard. My wife commented that he was very respectful and I do appreciate that.
