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.

They are not even the company that mows your lawn, they are simply a broker. They rescheduled my lawn mow twice and after I called them they said they couldn’t get any lawn care providers in the area and it will continue to be rescheduled until they find one. I do not recommend.

Our lawn care company stopped cutting our lawn and would not respond to my phone, email and imessage requests. I needed someone to act quickly, as our lawn was growing way too high. Tom responded quickly and within a few days came out and did a beautiful job on our lawn. Thank you Tom!!

GROW lawn care did an excellent job installing sod in my backyard! They responded quickly and started the job right away. They had to till my backyard, remove A LOT of excess dirt, smooth it out, and then install the sod. Before and after photos below! Very happy with the work they did and for a great price. Will definitely be using them for all of my lawn care needs. Jim and Frank were very helpful.

They were quick to come out and got the job done in record time. The lawn looks great too! Their price was higher than I've paid other services, but you get what you pay for. Shannas M&G Lawn Care was worth the extra money, and I'm not one who's easy to please.

C&C Hauling and Lawn Care really went above in beyond with the job I had for them. I had severely let my lawn go and they handled it like it was nothing. Had it done in like an hour despite massive overgrowth. Get these guys in for your project and make sure you have a tip handy.

Mike has done a great job cutting our lawn and even removed two trees in our landscaping the first day he came. I am extremely picky when it comes to lawn care and we've been very happy with his service. So happy in fact, we hired him to cut another family members lawn as well. Mike's wife, Misty, cleans houses and is fantastic too. She helped get our new house back in order after the previous owners had seriously neglected the upkeep and cleaning. She is detailed, efficient and all around amazing. Hire them both! You won't be disappointed!

Brightview came thorough and was ready to work. I was not expecting the job to get done the day they came because so many other companies came to just give me a quote. Brightview gave me an awesome quote and I will have them back again. CALL THEM TODAY for your lawn care. THANKS :)

Robert and his crew were able to take care of my lawn and downed limbs in a timely manner, especially considering all the tree issues around the area after the storm. His rate was reasonable, and he was very professional, going above and beyond by texting me photos of the job in process to make sure I was pleased. The finished product looked great.
