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.

I have been very impressed with C&J Lawn Care. Anything I need, I just text Josh and he gets it done for me. They've done a great job with my lawn and I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a good quality and affordable lawn care service.

I am retired 62 years old. My neighbors son was mowing the lawn until he went to college and I had another lawn service to treat the lawn for weeds and to fertilize it. I wanted to hire a service that would do it all and for a good price. Keep-N-It Green Lawn Care gives me what I needed. They have my lawn beautifully green and trimmed every week. I have recommended his services to others. Diana- Columbus, Ohio

I contacted Watson's last minute after I was blown off by several other lawn care "Professionals" I found on Thumbtack. Watson's was very willing to work around my schedule which is super important because I travel frequently for work. This team was super friendly and did a fantastic job. I plan to keep using Watson's for all of my lawn care needs.

I was with another lawn care company for 2 years. Never had any issues until the day before my wedding, which was held in my yard. The previous company never showed and to make matters worse, I couldn’t set up until the yard was mowed…I contacted THUMBTACK & entered my info - Walter & his crew were sensitive to my needs and arrived ready to handle it in a short notice. All Seasons is my lawn care company now!

They didn't come on the started day, Saturday, but instead came Sunday morning after I'd worked all night. They cut the grass uneven leaving patches of yall grass and weeds. They did not yay the lawn at all. AND I have not yet seen or spoken with anyone to plan the years lawn care. Its absolutely incredible to me that they are still in business! Oh and the son of the owner, who did the really horrid job on my lawn, said "I just cut the grass. I don't know about all that other stuff". REALLY? Never again!

Great customer service and timely responses online. They came out and saved us from an overgrown lawn and gave us peace of mind while we take care of a newborn in his first week. Yard looks great.

I do not believe this is a valid Pro or valid Lawn care Service company. It has incorrect information and also a incorrect phone number listed on the profile. Did not respond to any of my messages or called me to confirm the appointment.

Received my Thumb Tack bids: Nick & Jessica were the only ones to offer next day service. They responded quickly and took good care of my mother's lawn. How do I know? They sent me photos of their work. Talk about going above and beyond with Customer Service.

Miguel and his crew did an excellent job on my flower beds and cleaning up my backyard. They arrived on time and did a thorough and professional job in a timely manner. They acted in a most professional manner and were pleasant to work with. I will definitely consider hiring for any future lawn care work.

Our grass was so long, we didn’t even know where to start. I was desperate to find someone to help and was glad to find PLC Services. Not only did I receive a quick response, but I also got amazing work quality for an even better price. I will definitely be using PLC Services for all my lawn care services.

This is not a review of the actual lawn care service, because as of yet, it has still not happened. My original appt was for a Wednesday, was then moved to Friday (which no problem with) but then the pro did not show up on Friday, nor Saturday (though I was sent a text that said they were on their way), nor Sunday...and the appt is now scheduled for Tuesday. Gotta be honest, not super confident anyone is showing up Tuesday either. What hasn’t been pushed back was the fact that I was billed for a service that never happened. I have reached out on this app and through their online tool, and nothing has been done. My house is going on the market this week, so I scheduled lawncare service to start a week before leaving ample time for weather, etc... Will be looking for a new service provider.
