to customercare We have hired R & A Commercial Cleaning Services to maintain our church sidewalks during the winter months. We can say that they have been extremely prompt when it snows and they come and clear the sidewalk and the ramp leading into our church. After they have finished the job, you cannot tell that it even snowed. We also had them clean our large plate glass windows in the front of our church and they did a wonderful job and took their time and did not rush through the job.We would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for such services.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Amsterdam lawn care professionals

Kyle from Grassroots Lawn Specialists is great to work with. The prices are reasonable. He lets you know when and after it is done. Easy way of paying right online. I have him coming for the lawn every time it needs to be cut. Had him do all the lawn care so far and it looks great!!!!!

Kyle Morehouse of Grass Roots Lawn Specialists is in my opinion the MOST UNPROFESSIONAL person I have ever encountered. Not just in the work he does, but the way he treats his customers. I emailed him precisely what I needed done. I had asked him to “mow, edge and clear the front, back and sides of my home” and gave him my address. I told him the lawn was very overgrow and not going to be just a typical mow/trim job. He said he would do it the following week. On the day he came to do my lawn I got home and discovered only 1/2 of the lawn was done! The portion of the lawn that he did take care of was done very poorly. Nothing was raked or cleared as requested. The side of the house he did not mow looked like he started to do it, and just quit. I honestly believed that the job wasn’t finished and that he was coming back to complete the work. We had been communicating through email, so I checked to see if he emailed me that he was coming back. The only email I had from Mr. Morehouse was an invoice for payment. The job was considered “completed” on his part. So I emailed him my disappointment in the job he had done. I told him “If I were to photograph the front of my house and posted it on line as a representation of your work, I don’t imagine you would have many more new customers. If this work is representative of what you consider professional lawn service, I am very disappointed.” Rather than trying to remedy the situation this was Mr. Morehouse’s response: “Imagine my surprise when the only thing you specified regarding area was upstairs. From what I interpereted, I mowed half of the front and all of the rear of the house. In my industry when you specify up stairs or down stairs (rental property's with two rental units) that means half. If you were to post a picture of my work, I would profesioally post a picture of the lack of up keep "before picrure" that I took, and post an after picture right next to, it along side a copy of your email only saying upstairs. I do not have time for condicending or rude clients such as yourself. Consider my work effort, and an attempt to fully satisfy you as a donation on behalf GrassRoots Lawn Specialists. GrassRoots Lawn Specalists does not work with, and will never work with customers of your nature. We will no longer offer our services to you.” Kyle Morehouse had my email address and phone number, as well as the first email I sent describing specifically what I needed done. Yet rather than contact me and ask specifically what I needed, he simply assumed because I told him I was in the upper apartment, I only wanted half the lawn done. Contact should have been made before assuming anything. And most professionals would have done just that. I would not recommend GrassRoots Lawn Specialists to anyone. Not just because of the poor work he did, but because of the lack of professionalism when dealing with clients. I believe a class in professional ethics, manners and spelling would greatly benefit Mr. Morehouse.
