Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does landscaping cost?

The price of landscaping varies widely due to the range of choices that can be made, but you can expect to pay anywhere from $320 and $20,000 for your landscaping work. The national average cost for a landscaping project is $2,600. 

Factors like the choice of plants, the amount and type of hardscaping, the square footage of your landscaped area, and the region you live in will have a significant effect on your landscaping cost.

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.

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.

Where can you buy landscaping rocks?

You can shop for landscaping rocks from a variety of different sources. The first option is large chain retail stores specializing in home improvement and gardening. Often, landscaping rocks like slate and other slabs arrive on pallets and are sold in bulk, giving you a great deal. Your local landscaping store also carries rocks, and you may even have a stone or quarry seller nearby who can sell you the rocks you need. When in doubt, contact landscaping companies near you to see if they have rocks you can purchase.

What is landscaping?

Landscaping is the intentional placement and maintenance of living plants on an area of land or in your yard. This can include trees, lawn, flowers, bushes and other plant life and often incorporates mulch and other organic matter. The primary purpose of landscaping is to provide beauty to the house or building it surrounds. 

Many landscaping companies also offer design, architecture and construction services. For example, they can help you design a yard that incorporates a patio, deck, pool, fire pit, lighting, walkways, retaining walls and more.

What is landscape design?

Landscaping design refers to the art of analyzing an existing landscape, planning how to transform it through flora and fauna design and working with a client to ensure goals are met. Landscape designers may completely transform an outdoor space or make minor modifications to enhance it. They may also call for grading and the construction of hardscaping surfaces like walkways or patios to add to the enjoyment of the space.

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.

Had no idea that a lawn care service would/could be run so professionally. This guy was awesome, automated, and on time. Will use going forward for routine care.

Absolutely GREAT job done by Black Diamond Lawn Service. I sent out a request for lawn service and within the hour got a reply with a quote from Kelvin. Not only that, but he personally came out to survey the lawn to provide a more accurate estimate and also showed up bright and early the next morning to take care of the job. I couldn't be more happy with how it came out and will definitely be hiring him again for more work. Prompt, professional, fairly priced, knowledgeable, and cares about his work. Thank you, Kelvin!

Will is very professional and fair. He was great at explaining things about my lawn that I never knew and was more than happy to answer any questions that I had. I honestly learned a lot. Most important, I am more than happy with the time, effort, and detail that Will put into this service. My lawn looks fantastic! I look forward to working regularly with Trust Lawn care professionals and would definitely recommend them.

If you are looking for an honest, hard-working professional for lawn care services, Mark is your man. He does amazing work at a fair and equitable price. I recently moved from New York and he did a phenomenal job on my overgrown rental property. I plan to retain his services on a biweekly basis, and beyond.

They were very responsive and communicative. They came out the next day to look at my property. They text me to let me know they were on their way to my house. Once there they were able to complete the lawn services we talked about at the price they quoted. No hidden cost. Easy online payment and they were willing to work with my proposed lawn care schedule. Very professional and such an easy process. This was my first experience hiring with Thumbtack. The next company I hire will have a very high standard to meet!

We were looking for help with lawn care at our home property in South Charlotte. Mark Mitchell answered our request quickly and after speeching with him on the phone, he came to our house to meet us. We hired him to mow, edge and blow our front, side and back yard. Mark and Daniel have been professional, prompt, conscientious and friendly. Since the first service, we have also hired him to prune some shrubbery and clean out the gutters. We were impressed that he checks back with us after finishing the weekly service, asking if we are pleased with the way the yard looks. His prices are reasonable for the service they provide. We do recommend him as "GREAT" for Lawn Care and the other many skills he has to do maintence and upkeep for your home/yard.

This was my first time using the service and I am more than pleased. Mr. Gerald Hopkins was on time and called ahead when he was enroute. Very quick and precise with his work. Very professional and polite. He will be my lawn care guy going forward. Reasonable price for quality work. First impression is everything and that is what I got from Mr. Hopkins. Thank you very much for your quick respond and prompt arrival.

I posted here on Thumbtack looking for a lawn care professional to care for our yard. I listed our yard size as "Large 5,000-10,000 sq ft" because that was the option that best suited our yard size (around 8,000 sq ft). Mr. Stacy was very kind in his corespondence and quoted us $35 for our yard based on the information the website gave him. We scheduled a day and he showed up on time. However, once he got here he said that $35 was not the correct price for our size yard and that I listed the wrong size (not sure how that would've happened since I chose the "Large" option) He said that for our size yard it would be $65! I was appalled at the price change but was stuck in a hard place. Our yard needed mowing, as we have an HOA, and we don't own a mower. He claimed the yard was much more work than he originally thought (our yard is a giant square in the back, and we only have one medium tree in the front). I told him to go ahead but that I would need to speak with my boyfriend about coming back. I assumed that he would be cutting our grass with the professional mower on his trailer. Instead, he used a very tiny push mower that one could purchase at Walmart. At this point I was disappointed, but chose to let him continue on. It took him over 1.5 hours to cut our yard and when he left it looked fine, but not $65 worth. He hadn't trimmed the grass around our fence, and where he did trim (around our deck) he cut it so low the dirt was showing. Now, I don't want to seem like a horribly negative person. Mr. Lemays was a very sweet, kind, and professional man. However, I don't find the work he did to be satisfactory for the amount I paid. I have since found another lawn service who both quoted and charged me significantly less ($40) to do the work. It looks amazing and doesn't take nearly as long (plus he uses professional equipment).
