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.  

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.

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.

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.

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.

What should you look for when hiring a landscaper?

Landscaping can be costly — though it usually pays off in curb appeal and home resale value — so finding a landscaper who is worth the investment is important. When hiring a landscaper, look for proven success with the type of results you want. For example, if you know you want a drought-tolerant yard, research websites, reviews and portfolios that showcase beautiful drought-tolerant yards that the landscaper has installed. In addition to relevant experience, you’ll want to find a landscape contractor who has good client reviews. Good communication skills are another important quality in a landscape contractor, since everything from plant selection to hardscape installation needs to be discussed and agreed upon. A landscape contractor who is reliable, easy to understand and able to listen to what you want will help make the process seamless and enjoyable.

How do you find a good landscape architect?

Hiring a landscape architect is an investment in your home. Landscaping can reduce water bills, improve your home resale value, add to your daily living experience and significantly boost curb appeal. A landscape architect will draw the designs for your new landscape; you’ll want to hire a landscape contractor to carry out the plans. Many companies provide design-build landscaping services, with a company architect creating plans for your vision and the landscape contractor executing the vision. With the proper academic background and licensing, a person can be both landscape architect and landscape contractor. Here are a few tips for finding a great landscape architect:

  • Research online portfolios and find several landscape architects whose work interests you.
  • Read online reviews of client experiences.
  • Research whether the landscape architects you are interested in are currently licensed and in good standing with the licensing board, and check whether any complaints have been issued against them. Each state will have their own searchable database. For example, you can search for California landscape architects via the state’s Department of Consumer Affairs.
  • Request bids from your selected landscape architects.
  • Hire the one you like the most, taking care to have a clearly written contract outlining scope of work.

What does a landscape contractor do?

Landscape contractors work from outdoor architectural or design plans to build and install hardscaping or softscaping for the client, much as a general contractor uses architectural designs to build a house. Landscape contractors are experts in soil drainage, grading, hardscaping (installing concrete paths and retaining wall, building ponds, etc.), and planting. They have heavy equipment such as excavators and tractors to prepare the land as needed.

Some landscape contractors are also landscape architects or landscape designers. The titles can be compared with those in home construction: A building or landscape architect must earn a specialized architecture degree and pass an exam to have a license. A designer — whether an interior designer or a landscape designer — does not usually require a license to work. Landscape contractors are not required by law to work from plans designed by a landscape architect, so you may work directly with the landscape contractor to specify the work you’d like done. The national average cost for large-scale landscaping projects is $10,160. Pricing can vary greatly depending on the project scope, materials and design.

City Pro Services did such a beautiful job landscaping my yard! When I met with Andy the first time, he understood what I wanted from flower beds to the flowers and greenery I wanted for my yard. I highly recommend this company for any of your landscaping needs! I will be hiring them again in the fall to plant trees.

While we didn't end up hiring City Pro for our landscaping project (we ended up changing our mind about the scope of work & delaying some of it!) they were a pleasure to work with --great communication, knowledgeable, prompt.

I cannot speak highly enough about our experience with Chad and his crew. We hired them for basic yard maintenance that included mulching and cleaning up our landscaping beds. We have a lot of landscaping so this was no easy feat. Not only was Chad's quote the most reasonable, he was incredibly helpful and generous with his lawn care advice and went above and beyond to make sure we were pleased with the work his crew did. He completed the work within the time frame promised and we would hire him again in a heartbeat.

I had a large bed put in, as well as six trees planted in several different spots in my yard. The trees and plants used were top notch and the installation was excellent. They left no visible signs they had been here other my new beautiful trees and bed. I would highly recommend them for any landscaping project.

Even amidst all the turmoil during the Coronavirus, City Pro Services really came through. They landscaped my corner lot in under 4 hours and took every precaution and used the guidelines set up by our government for safety concerning their workers and myself. It is a family run business and they are professional and friendly. I am more than happy with the quality of work.

I hired them to sod part of my yard and build a play area to put a swing set. They showed up on time on the day we had scheduled ahead of time (Actually we had scheduled earlier, but because of weather they had to reschedule, which they let me know about immediately. Loved the communication!). They worked diligently all day and were able to finish the project in one day! Courteous, hard-working, professional, and skilled. I will definitely be hiring them again for future landscaping needs!

City Pro Landscaping is an expanding business that gives you BEAUTIFUL RESULTS! Julie and Andy came to my home and walked my yard, which needed alot of help. They discussed what I wanted and gave me suggestions on what type of shrubs and plants to acheive the design I wanted. They talked with me and offered suggestions, and spent an hour with me in February. Julie stayed in touch with me until the weather was right for planting. The end of April came and their crew started working. I was amazed at how organizedthey were. They put in boxwoods and roses in front of my house. They added so much color with both annuals and perennials!! They then started on my courtyard, that has a pond and 3 areas for flowers. They made each bed special with the plants that I love! They worked on the pond, they cleaned, and placed new plants in along with my fish. Everdyday they worked, even when it was raining, Julie and Andy always stayed in contact with me. Both Julie and Andy, along with their crew were hard and fast workers! I am so pleased with everything they did for me, I feel like they are part of my family. If anyone needs a landscaping company that cares, then you need to talk with Julie and Andy. It is gratifying to know that there are businesses that care for their clients and work hard to make them happy. I will be using them in the future to make my garden beautiful next year! June P.

City Pro Services did a fantastic job on our landscape. We were asking for a lot of work, and they delivered and gave us plenty of tips for upkeep and recommendations as far as design & which plants to use. They were very knowledgeable on the different plant types, which ones do best in shade, how much water needed, etc. They did a full job and did not take any "shortcuts" to get done quicker. They even swapped 2 of our plants that started to die after they had planted them with new ones for us. 100% would hire again. They were very responsive throughout the whole job, and did very professional work.

City pro was very responsive and worked hard to get the job done in a timely manner. I enjoyed their professionalism. The one thing I would recommend to someone hiring them for landscaping is to be present while they are working to make sure all the plants and shrubs are put in the right spots and the final result is what you had envisioned. I was not able to be there due to my work schedule and the end result was BEAUTIFUL, but just a little different from what I had thought we talked about. an example would be just like putting in the right plants that we talked about but mixing up between the locations of all of them. Even though it was not what I expected it was great work and I would definitely hire them again.

From the beginning, we knew that this would be a great company to use as the conversation leading up to our estimate was very professional and courteous as well as punctual. They showed up to do the estimate and were very knowledgeable and taught me a lot about the plants that were located around my home. They were very understanding and creative with their approach to how they were going to operate and explained it 100% of the way to ensure we were comfortable with the job. We agreed and they were out very quickly to complete the job and managed to get everything done within 24 hours of starting which was amazing. The quality is reflective of a job well done and now our house looks brand new and added the right touches to the outside to make it look beautiful! We will be using them again in the future and we recommend them to anyone for any landscaping needs.
