Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

Is hiring a landscaper worth it?

A landscaper is worth it if you don't want to invest a significant amount of time and effort into planting, trimming, raking, weeding and performing other operations on your garden or yard. Hiring a landscaper to perform regular maintenance in your yards and complete bigger projects is valuable if you’re looking to sell your house. A professional landscaper can make your house more appealing to potential buyers. 

Some landscapers may perform maintenance duties — remove leaves, mow lawns, trim trees and shrubs, etc. —  but they can also help you bring bigger projects to life. This may include adding a misting system, an outdoor fireplace, water features, artificial turf, a patio and much more.

What should you look for when hiring a landscaper?

Landscaping can be costly — though it usually pays off in curb appeal and home resale value — so finding a landscaper who is worth the investment is important. When hiring a landscaper, look for proven success with the type of results you want. For example, if you know you want a drought-tolerant yard, research websites, reviews and portfolios that showcase beautiful drought-tolerant yards that the landscaper has installed. In addition to relevant experience, you’ll want to find a landscape contractor who has good client reviews. Good communication skills are another important quality in a landscape contractor, since everything from plant selection to hardscape installation needs to be discussed and agreed upon. A landscape contractor who is reliable, easy to understand and able to listen to what you want will help make the process seamless and enjoyable.

What is included in lawn service?

Full-service lawn care companies typically offer a wide range of lawn care services, including mowing, mulching, landscaping, leaf removal, tree and shrub care, and more. 

Companies may offer additional specialty services, depending on your location and the type of business. For example, a company may provide seasonal maintenance services such as aeration, hedge trimming and weeding, while another offers pest control, seeding services and grub control. 

Contact the best lawn care services near you to see what kinds of services they provide.

How do you find a good landscape architect?

Hiring a landscape architect is an investment in your home. Landscaping can reduce water bills, improve your home resale value, add to your daily living experience and significantly boost curb appeal. A landscape architect will draw the designs for your new landscape; you’ll want to hire a landscape contractor to carry out the plans. Many companies provide design-build landscaping services, with a company architect creating plans for your vision and the landscape contractor executing the vision. With the proper academic background and licensing, a person can be both landscape architect and landscape contractor. Here are a few tips for finding a great landscape architect:

  • Research online portfolios and find several landscape architects whose work interests you.
  • Read online reviews of client experiences.
  • Research whether the landscape architects you are interested in are currently licensed and in good standing with the licensing board, and check whether any complaints have been issued against them. Each state will have their own searchable database. For example, you can search for California landscape architects via the state’s Department of Consumer Affairs.
  • Request bids from your selected landscape architects.
  • Hire the one you like the most, taking care to have a clearly written contract outlining scope of work.

Reviews for Apple Valley landscapers
Tessa C.
Dee and her crew did an amazing job. Her knowledge and expertise surpassed my expectations and we just love our new landscaping. I only had a general idea of what we wanted done. Dee made great suggestions, recommendations, solutions, and just all-around knows EVERYTHING about landscaping. The project was finished ahead of when we were originally scheduled and they even came back a second time to adjust a few irrigation heads that needed to be moved to coincide with the landscape design. We are looking forward to next Spring/Summer to complete phase 2 of our landscaping with Landscape Gal.

I had had water leak into my basement and knew I needed some landscaping for drainage and another small landscape project. When Jordan saw how the apron to my garage was sinking he told us we should have a foundation specialist look at it. He went on the internet with us and found the ones that were most highly rated. I was impressed that he did not try to take on a job he did not feel he was qualified with. I have decided to hold off on my other landscaping but his quote for a retaining wall was very reasonable.

I'm so thankful we found Chris to install the brick sitting area in our front yard. Chris is very professional, courteous, and reasonaby priced. He is very knowledgable about landscaping and very meticulous in his work and design implementation. I highly recommend Chris to anyone for landscaping or any yard maintenance! Chris is one of the hardest working and focused individuals I know! It was a true pleasure to work with him! And we love our brick sitting area in the front yard and so do our neighbors!

Came out in February right after contacting. Gave me quote. Job was performed on April 24, 25th as promised. Called with question regarding watering, responded in a timely manner. Said he would stop by middle of May to check progress. All in all, I am very satisfied with the work Attractive Landscaping has performed. Would highly recommend them.

Ben and Carlos were great. We had a project to finish on a tight timeline and needed a quality finish. They installed the rock and landscaping on time, on budget and it looks fantastic. They took it to the next level cleaning up after my garbage man who spilled grass all over our street and replaced a sprinkler head that was faulty. Very professional team, with great work ethics and quality skills.

Jacob was great with email communication. He gave me his honest assessment of my project and didn't try to talk me into anything more expensive. He stayed within and even under my budget for this project (driveway retaining wall). I love the results! He also showed up when he said he would and the work was completed on time. I would definitely recommend Easy Landscaping!

I hired Easy Landscaping to repair some damage to my property and replace some sod. Jacob is great to work with! They were prompt, prepared, and professional! They even added on to the job by getting some gravel to spread on my driveway. Due to my own schedule, I won't actually see the final completed project until tomorrow, so I can't comment on the quality yet, but I expect great things. And his prices were very reasonable. I'll definitely hire them again!

We hired Fentons Lawn Care to re-work all of our landscaping from the 1980's in Woodbury, MN. Christian gave us a very reasonable quote and said it could be done in two days. I was a little skeptical, but they started on time and worked two very long days to get it done in the time quoted! We were very happy with the work that Fentons Lawn Care did for us and we would happily hire them again. I even added a little work that I had forgotten to tell them about and they got it done to my satisfaction with a very reasonable addition to our quote. Our Yard looks great and the house will be ready to sell in the next few weeks. Thanks CJ!

Jacob is a quiet man of few words. However, his work speaks volumes. I couldn't believe the amount of work he accomplished in a single day. He completed the job the dates he promised. He removed massive amounts of weeds, created flower and shrub beds, planted flowers, a tree and shrubs along with some grading of land and sod installation. He mulched everything with a nice thick layer of cedar mulch. My yard went from the worst on the block to absolutely radiant! Jacob is incredibly organized. He broke down my work request by areas and type of work. He detailed prices for each area so that I could tweak things or opt to do some work this year and save some for next year's budget. His final work order was very detailed and he provided signed and dated contracts to sign so that you knew both parties were fully committed to the project. He was very tidy and left my yard organized at the end of each day. (Full project lasted about a week) I highly recommend Jacob and Easy Landscaping LLC.
