Just wanted to share my experience using Thumbtack. We needed a large yard work project done and chose Julios lawn care services from the Thumbtack providers provided. We could not have been more pleased with the job done by Domingo and his team. They were prompt, courteous, worked very hard and efficiently. They completed the task quickly and left the yard clean and neat and removed all debris. Domingo was accessible and responded to any questions quickly. I would recommend this provider to anyone and would definitely use them again when I need lawn services done. I'd give them 10 stars if I could!!!

Testing out lawn services for a small condo building. Our yard had become overgrown and Juan and his crew quickly came to the rescue. Our lawn looks great and the price was fair. I'm looking forward to working with them again.

Really nice guy. Kept in contact with me on when he would arrive. Weather was terrible and he did a nice job on my lawn even with all the rain. I am having him do additional work too. Glad I found his company!

Josh and crew are fantastic at what they do! I've relied heavily on Josh for my lawn care needs. Last summer, I had an insane over growth of Ivy on my yard. His team came out and not only pulled all the ivy, but killed it. So far, it hasn't returned!!! I also appreciate how Josh tries to educate you on specifics of what he's doing, and ways he can help you. And above all else, he's so fairly priced. Whereas the big guys want to charge you and arm and a leg, Josh cuts right to the chase and charges you without all that corporate overhang you pay for everyone else. The beginning of this summer I had Josh fix up my lawn mower, however, I've still asked Josh for help mowing my lawn, and other odds and ends for help with regards to my lawn care needs.

I usually care for my own lawn, but recently had some surgery and was unable to do so this week. Natural Cutz quoted the best price and did a great job with above-average length grass. Thank you!

I hired Mr. Williams and We Work Lawn Care to mow and wack my yard. I did not previously know this company, and was skeptical. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the high level of quality service. His service was very good, and he was a very pleasant gentleman. I would highly recommend his company. Thanks again!!

I impressed with the work quality. I used Thumbtack and received two quotes. Martell was actually the higher price. I selected him because I liked Martell's attitude. Not a leaf left in my yard. He was punctual and polite. He proven me a good quote for lawn services. I recommend Martell Landscaping.

I am thrilled that I hired Diverse Services to take care of my landscape. David responded immediately with detailed design and affordable quotes. His team have 5-7 people. They finished both front and back yard in one day. I am very satisfied with the quality of plants and flowers they planted. It displayed beautiful result right away. They are polite and flexible to work with, and communicate well. You can have peace of mind that they do not ask for more than the quoted price. It was totally a pleasant experience to work with them. I would not hesitate to recommend them to others.

I am very satisfied with Ben's promptness and the responsible way he attended to my needs. Because my current tenant had neglected caring for the lawn over a period of a year, Ben had to attack the weed problem as well as fertilize and re-seed the grass, so that the lawn could reach its full rich green color again. I appreciate how he has mastered all these tasks so quickly. I can highly recommend him to those, who appreciate a well-cared for lawn. I am looking forward to presenting photos of my new improved lawn in the near future.

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 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.

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 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.
