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.

Julius and Quincy came out when we needed someone and did a great job! We needed our lawn managed but also our decks cleaned up for an open house. They were so easy to work with and very open to random jobs like spraying off porches. They even went to another property we needed help at the same day and took care of that lawn too. Very polite. We will now be using them for regular lawn care.

Eduardo did absolutely wonderful work! He was punctual, professional, and was willing to work around my busy schedule. I was impressed with how thorough he was, and he put in the extra effort to make sure that I was satisfied. I had hired other lawn care professionals in the past, and was dissatisfied for one reason or another, but Eduardo put my concerns about hiring someone to handle our long-term lawn care needs, who can be trusted to do a great job without being constantly supervised, to rest. We will be continuing to use the West Dixie team!

I would recommend Next Level Property Services for lawn care. They were very professional and was knowledgeable on all the things going on in my yard which was a mess. When they finished it gave my house character. I will continue to use them for regular maintenance.

Curtis did an outstanding job removing leaves and mulching them. I live on a corner lot with water oaks so the leaves were in bunches on the ground. He was very easy to talk to on the phone and did a great job explaining his plan and executing it. I will only hire Curtis again for lawn care needs and I highly recommend his services to anyone

Total waste of my time. Where do I start? Basically, this is gig lawn care, you’re not selecting a specific company, you’re paying a middle man to provide service. The 1st company was okay, the lawn was decent already, but had several uneven spots, but I chocked it up to the beginning of the growing season and figured that as the grass grew in, the end results would improve. Things only got marginally better. The crew (Hendrix) would come mow and I noticed that they would use a weedwhacker/edger to cut some parts of the lawn. This would leave unevenness and weird patches, but again, I had another company come out who did the fertilizing, etc so wasn't quite sure what the problem was. I know these things take some time. A few weeks ago the crew came, mowed the lawn and I decided to watch them on the security cameras, towards the end I noticed one guy walk toward the back of my property, go behind the trees and spend about a minute and a half back there using the restroom! Completely unacceptable and totally GROSS! I contacted Lawnstarter and planned to cancel and move on, but they gave me a credit in order to not cancel and asked to give them another chance with one of their “top crews”. Fast forward to their “top crew” and my now my lawn looks worse than ever! Bald patches, areas of the lawn that weren't mowed at all, they blew clippings on the mulch. Just subpar all the way around. Learned my lesson about going the less expensive route. My advice, go with a reputable company.
