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.

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.

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.

Phillip and his crew did a great job doing an initial clean up of my property. The lawn came out excellent and they took care of every detail. They bagged up all bulk yard waste when finished. I'd recommend this company for your lawn care needs.

Mr. Vincent and Team responded quickly, professionally, and were very friendly throughout the lawn care. Mr. Vincent arranged for an expedited estimate even though I was out of town and understood my needs from our phone conversation and texts. He then set gave me a very fair quote and we set up the lawn care with in a few days. I am extremely happy with the power washing of the house, lawn care, and bushes (that were a hot mess)! Thank you for following up and being so kind throughout all of this!

I reached out to the Company and someone immediately responded back to me and came out the same day and gave me an estimate. Also, not only that did the lawn service on the same day for a very affordable price. I hired him on the spot for the care of my lawn every two weeks. Thank You so much for being able to help me....

I paid online after speaking with a live person and expressing the deadline I needed. The deadline came and passed with no show by the lawn care people. I called to cancel service and left a voicemail and sent a text. No reply. 6 days later the lawn mowers showed up. The worker responded with, "I at least keep $15 for showing up". I called again with no answer so I left a voicemail. That was nearly a week ago with no response. I expect a refund, and yet to see if that will happen. This was for a one time lawn mowing experience.

All I can say is that "Philip's Maintenance Service" is too notch and 1st class!!! My wife and I had to fire our previous lawn care service because their work quality was horrible, the service was never punctual, communication was practically non existent (no matter how much we reached out to them) and the owner was not trustworthy, truthful or professional. "Philip's Maintenence Service" is the exact opposite and my wife and I could not be happier with the services they provide. In fact some of our neighbors have chosen to use their services as well after seeing the great service they provided for my wife and I. We clearly have the best kept lawn in our subdivision and we love it. We are building a new home in the near future plus purchasing several rental properties soon as well. You can bank on it that Philip's Maintenance Service will be providing lawn care services for all of our properties in the foreseeable future!!!!

Thomas was very quick to respond with a quote, and was able to get me scheduled right away. He was friendly and prompt and my yard looks great! He is very easy to work with; takes different types of payments to make it as convenient as possible. I highly recommend Thomas and Grass Life Lawn Care.

I'm giving Grass Life 2 stars because he did actually landscape my yard 1 time. My original landscape appointment was scheduled for a Thursday. I was told, after already re-confirming earlier in the day that he was definitely coming, that he was unable to make it and would be there the next day. The next day came and went with no word from him. I texted and I was told one of his employees had a medical emergency and that he would personally come out on Saturday morning to complete the job. He kept his word and came at 8:30 to complete the job. We discussed him coming back in 2 weeks and adding in maintenance on the bushes for the next trip. Two weeks later and Hurricane Michael was here. The storm hit Wednesday evening into Thursday, so I assumed we wouldn't get lawn care that day. Friday morning, with no word from Thomas, I texted to inquire when he would be back. I was told I was on the schedule for that day. I received a text around 5pm that afternoon stating they weren't going to make it but would definitely be here Sarurday afternoon. I said okay. Saturday afternoon around 3:30pm I hadn't heard from him, so I texted asking if they were coming. I got no response. I texted again at about 5pm and still got no response. After being repeatedly pushed aside and rescheduled on, we have decided to go with another company. The work that Thomas did was good, but I would rather pay someone that keeps their word and responds to my inquiries. Be careful using Grass Life- they may be a bit overwhelmed. Good communication makes all the difference.
