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.

First I would like to point out how responsive Cardinal is to my needs. My job is not large therefore most companies dismiss the opportunity to offer service. Cardinal service remains dedicated to providing top notch service to my flower bed clean up. I have small roses in the front and the leaves were stuck to the barbs of the stems. Cardinal spent most of the day at my home cleaning and pruning at a “most” Reasonable rate a senior on a small income could afford. In addition to responsive Cardinal is an expert at offering that old fashioned customer kindness. Therefore if you also are tired of hearing from your lawn care provider. “ Maybe”we can fit your job into the schedule. I would tell you to wait no longer and hire Cardinal for your lawn care needs they give you a date to be at your property arrive with the tools needed to complete your lawns or flower beds needs.

For various reasons, I let my lawn go to heck this summer - to the point that the grass was too high for me to handle myself. Gina O'Ryan Lawn Care was willing to work with me and clean up the yard based on a few pictures - as I didn't want to go out and talk to them due to the COVID pandemic. I retained them for regular lawn service, and they do a good job with that as well. They are very flexible, and they seem like they're willing to quote you for any type of landscaping labor you ask them for, which is nice; there aren't projects that they refuse to do. For example, I had them do everything from mowing and edging to killing weeds and trimming/removing bushes. Overall, they do a good job, and I plan to stick with them long term.

Landon messaged me right away, and was at my house 2 days later to take care of my lawn. A Cut Above did an amazing job on my corner lot and even cleaned up some leaves that had been hanging around. They are very reasonably priced, friendly, and efficient. I highly recommend this company.

I am so happy that I reach A Cut Above Lawn Care LLC. Mr. Landon was very responsive to my lawn. 1 day turn around from contact to yard cut. I was impressed with his skill in cutting my size backyard. I appreciate that I found the right man to handle my yard in a quick manner, he questioned me after the job wanting to know did I think he done a good quality job. I really appreciate his value and thoughtfulness for all Veterans that he does work for. Thank You, Mr. Landon

I requested landscape/lawn care on Thumbtack and received information from multiple companies that were available. I communicated with Patrick from Clean N Green what I was looking for and we set up a time/day for him to stop by and take a look at my yard. He stopped by the following afternoon while I was out and contacted me with an estimated. He was able to get started right away and has done a excellent job!

I am really disappointed with Diamondback Lawn Care. I told Shawn about this client and this property on two occasions before he agreed to do the job. When I went to meet him at the property and pay him for the first mowing he called to see if I was there yet. I explained that I had gone to the store a few blocks away to get cash to pay for the first mowing. He agreed when I said I would be there in two minutes. When I arrived I received two texts stating that he thought he would pass on this one and that he didn't want to do it. I just think this was lousy business practices to say he would do the job and then wait until he allowed me to drive clear across town to meet and pay him and didn't have enough professionalism to tell me when he called me that he didn't want to do the job. I would never recommend any company who treated their customers so poorly!
