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.

Dan is a newer lawn care business that will make sure to take care of you properly. He keeps you up to date and follows through on what he says he will do, unlike Top Notch lawn Service. Dan has been taking care of my lawn and sending me pictures as I am now moved to Dallas area. He is timely, fare priced, and good at what he does. I would and have hired him again to take care of my lawn.

Mike's team was very fast to respond to our lawn care needs and had our yard taken care of the day after requesting service! The lawn looked great and the two gentlemen who mowed were very quick and professional. Will highly recommend their services to neighbors!

We hired Dan, based on his professionalism throughout the startup process. He was informative in the services provided with detail costing to allow us to make a sound business decision to move our lawn care services. He crafted a specific get well plan to improve our lawn care in which both, we and him will be proud of throughout the season.

It was a pleasure working with Justin and his wife Ke'jana. They were polite, professional, and even though my project was bigger than Justin was expecting he was able to work out a detailed plan with me to get my lawn in tip top shape. I am very happy with the work done and will be using them continuously for lawn care.

I own property in two states. I needed a service that would take care of the lawn of one that I do not reside in. When Mike answered my request he was very accommodating. He said there would be a crew out that Thursday. THANK YOU MIKE you are a life saver.

I contacted CC’s to get an estimate and Mr. Castro was at my home that afternoon. I needed snow removal set up and it just happened that it snowed that night. The following morning, he was here and completed the job before 9:00am. I’m looking forward to meeting with him shortly for an assessment of my lawn issues to be taken care this Spring.

Dave talked with me Saturday morning and was here by early afternoon that same day. He mowed, trimmed, and edged our lawn. It looks GREAT! ! I was skeptical that I could find someone that really cares. D's Multi-Service is well on their way to winning me over. Thank you so much, Dave I will hire you again for sure.

Dan was very punctual and got back to me right away. It was great knowing I could count on someone to take care of my parent's lawn from 500 miles away. He could not complete an area at time of service due to neighbor's sprinklers but he came back and finished it the next day. Most providers wouldn't go out of their way to do that, but he did! Thanks, Dan!

My hard was a mess! My boyfriend is a truck driver so he hardly has time to do maintenance work and with how our yard is shaped even he struggled with a lawn mower so he always uses a weed Wacker but while he works and I work, go to school and raise our 5 children there is no time or energy to take care of our yawn. Bobby saved the day and I couldn't be happier. He had a good promotion to offer and I couldn't just accept that considering the work that needed to be done, so I left him a tip. Thank you Bobby!
