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 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.

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 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’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.

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.

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.

I asked for a quote and was immediately contacted. After providing a few details, I was presented with a quote which was in the ballpark for the service being performed. I was scheduled for the very next day. I was notified ahead of time that they were on the way. They showed up and aerated my lawn. They did a couple of passes and it seemed good to me. I laid down my own fertilizer and seed. Overall I was very pleased with the service.

Arrington Co. is the only lawn care service I will trust now. I paid $500 for someone to fertilize my lawn. They killed my grass, left leaves not bagged on the roadside, and did not make the flower bed look great. Each time Arrington comes, he puts in an extreme effort to get all of my leaves up, goes as far as cleaning my back porch, and bags everything/removes it promptly. I recently asked him to put white gravel in my flower beds and he went so far as to pot flowers in front of the house and put new mulch in front of the flower beds. You will not find better value or customer service.

Roderick was a pleasure to work with. This was our first time getting any lawn care and we had a seamless experience. He came out the day after my request to take a look and sent over a quote within a day. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and was willing to work within our specific requests (not using weed killer, working around garden plants). He was very communicative about the time on the day and his crew showed up ready to go. They finished weed-eating, aerating, seeding, moving mulch, and fertilizing our 2100 sq ft yard in an impressive two hours (in very hot weather) and left everything looking spotless. I can't recommend GVT enough and we will certainly be calling them for any future lawn care needs.

DO NOT USE “Chaney Lawn Care” I have never done anything like this before but I feel it’s justified. We had “Chaney Lawn Care” in Monroe come to do aeration and seeding in October 2020. We also signed up for the monthly maintenance which included mowing, edging, weed control in grass and beds, fertilizer etc as needed and blowing off all hard surfaces twice a month. They came out and seeded October 7th. After about 10 days I didn’t see even one seedling anywhere. So I asked if they would come put more out or if I needed to purchase and do it. Reluctantly they put more out. It was a back and forth thing about the seed for a couple of weeks. All the while they never did anything else maintenance wise. I could tell it wasn’t going to work out when they tried to charge me $230 for October maintenance when basically they didn’t do what they promoted. They blew the leaves haphazardly in the street and in my bushes once, edged and mowed when they originally came out to seed (which was actually part of the aeration and seeding process which I paid for). I unfortunately signed a year long contract and when I tried to cancel after 1 month they sued me for October maintenance plus and additional month. I lost because they had a lawyer advising them on what to say and I did not. I was not prepared going in there with the information I needed because I didn’t know or have counsel telling me what I should come armed with. I know this is a long post but I felt it was something that needed to be said. After posting this on Nextdoor, another individual had the same type issue with them. Below is a screenshot of her post.
