I'm new to the area and I needed my lawn mowed as my belongings (including my lawn mower) haven't yet arrived from my previous address. Bobby was the first to respond to my project request and was able to take care of my lawn within 24 hours AND he came out on a SUNDAY! I don't know about y'all but that's what I call customer service! His work was very thorough and time efficient. I will absolutely be using his lawn services in the future.

This is one of the best experiences I have had since becoming a homeowner 10 years ago. Eric came over to quote trimming two trees per my needs and went outside the box to point out an issue with my smaller ash tree that was spot on correct. The other services either did not care to point out or just neglected to tell me. He gave me a great price compared to the other tree trimming service's quotes and was very informative about what exactly he would do. He arranged to have OPPD drop the line and showed up early to get the job done. I did not have to worry about a thing. He and his partner did a great job on both trees and even removed a bit more than discussed because the trees had more dead wood up high than anticipated. At various points during the day, I observed them removing limbs and they did a masterful job making sure that no large limbs hit fences or did any damage whatsoever. Also his partner who was climbing the tree did so in a very safe, professional manner which made me comfortable especially with a 50 foot tree. Plus they cleaned up the front and back yards well. I am incredibly picky on any service that I pay for and I can honestly say anybody that would not pick B & E Tree service would be foolish. BEST EXPERIENCE EVER WITH ANY HOME SERVICE I HAD IN THE LAST 10 YEAR!

Dan is a newer lawn care business that will make sure to take care of you properly. He keeps you up to date and follows through on what he says he will do, unlike Top Notch lawn Service. Dan has been taking care of my lawn and sending me pictures as I am now moved to Dallas area. He is timely, fare priced, and good at what he does. I would and have hired him again to take care of my lawn.

I am very impressed with Evergreen Lawns and highly recommend them. I requested a quote to lay new mulch and perform a spring lawn clean-up. They were very quick to respond and their pricing is very competitive. Once I gave them a go-ahead, they performed the requested work immediately and did a very thorough and beautiful job. I will definitely use them again in the future!

This is the first lawn service I've ever hired and I couldn't be more satisfied. My lawn looks great and my neighbors were so impressed, they now have Hands Down working on their lawn, too. I'm a single mom with 2 kids and a dog, so I didn't think I could afford to hire someone to mow for me,until now. I greatly appreciate the affordability of Hands Down, so I'm able to focus on other things while he takes care of my yard. I'm excited to have Hands Down also do some landscaping for me this spring, as well. Very trustworthy and dependable...I highly recommend Hands Down.

I'v been mowing lawns now for five years, and I'm always looking for more commercial and residential clients. I mow lawns, trim, and blow the grass off driveways and sidewalks. I also aerate lawns in the fall, and no lawn size is too big or too small. Then, when that cold comes down from the north, I'm there to clean driveways. I only clean residential homes for snow.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

How do you look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes 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.

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.

What should I do to my lawn in the spring?

Spring is the perfect time to start thinking about lawn care. The ground is recovering from a long, cold winter, plants are starting to grow, and the earth is ready to receive new seeds. When the weather starts to warm, the first step in your lawn care strategy is deciding what you would like to achieve and what you need to do to make it happen. Your next step is to start cleaning up. Rake your lawn free of decomposing leaves, trim back shrubs and branches, and clear out all the weeds. Once your lawn is cleared of debris, tend to your irrigation system. Test your system and decide whether any repairs are necessary. Now it’s time to nourish the lawn. If you opt to aerate your lawn in spring, the national average cost is $70-$100. Consult with your lawn care pro, as some regions benefit from only aerating in fall. If you have bare spots, you can overseed the lawn to encourage new growth. Next you’ll want to fertilize the lawn to ensure it grows in rich and lush. Professional fertilization services may range from under $50 to over $200, depending on your lawn size. If you have a bad weed problem, you (or your lawn care pro) can apply pre-emergent herbicide to prevent a weed outbreak. Make sure the irrigation system is routinely watering your lawn, and then enjoy watching the grass grow.

How much is lawn care service?

Ensuring a lush, green lawn is so much more than simply mowing and watering the grass; it’s also pulling existing weeds and preventing future ones, fertilizing with the right nutrients, and coaxing new grass to grow in patchy spots. For many homeowners, a full-service lawn care company is the best way to maintain a beautiful lawn. The cost for professional lawn care depends on the size of the lawn and the services the homeowner chooses, as well as the location. For the typical suburban residence, the national average cost of full-service lawn care maintenance is $40-$50 per hour. Depending on the size of your lawn, that can cost you just $100 per month or more than $1,000 per month, but the average is about $350 per month. Most monthly services include a weekly cut, especially in the spring, as well as edging, weeding, and blowing the driveway, sidewalks and porches.
