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.

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 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.

He did a good job on cleaning my flowerbeds but was supposed to come back to finish more work I asked him to do (at additional charge) in addition to putting down landscaping fabric that was included in what I already paid for but I forgot to buy pins for the fabric. No response after following up two times. I was hoping to be able to use him for more work...unfortunate.

I am writing this review to alert everyone trying to hire this “professional.” I hired them to take care of my yard in the Carolina Country Club, Spartanburg, SC. It was a simple job: Mulching, trimming the shrubs, mow, aerate, reseed and fertilize the lawn. I paid them $800 on June 2nd and today is August 1, 2018, and the job has not been done yet. Whenever I call them to come and finish the job, which they required to be prepaid so they can get the supplies, I get some clumsy excuse ranging from those such as “My equipment was stolen I need to by new”, “I needed to register truck” “I fired the guys, need to find new workers” and similar to more bizarre ones involving health issues. They showed up two-three times, did sloppy work for a little while, never finishing the simple job I mentioned above and promising to come back “tomorrow” to finish it. It has been two months since I hired them and paid them, my yard is still not done. I hired them through the Thumbtack website based on the now obviously fake reviews they wrote themselves. After I did more research I found out that this is a phantom company, they go by names “Sandy Mush Landscaping and More” or “Dewayne's Landscaping and Tree Service” or just Dewayne Surrett operating in the upstate South Carolina and North Carolina, the Asheville area. I’ll make sure they are never hired in the Carolina Country Club by making everybody aware of this scam business and advising everyone to stay away from them since you will end up losing money, time and your nerves without having your project done. Reply to the company: Be professional, come back and finish the job ‒ no more excuses and delays, or issue a partial refund if you are unable to do it. Ignoring my multiple attempts to have this finished hoping I will just give up is not the way to treat the paying customers. I still need you to aerate, reseed and fertilize the lawns, especially the margin in the front yard which was not mulched and you told me it will be treated and reseed with grass, as well as the other “bald” areas such as those in the shades, as agreed. Finish pine mulch in the east lawn. You told me that the fabric will be put under that pine mulch to prevent weed growth, showed me the sample of it, and it was not placed, but the pine mulch was just spread over the ground without it, even though it was also agreed. Instead of that service, we can compensate by mowing the lawn. If you cannot do it, refund 1/3 of the price, 1/3 of the job was not done after two months prolonging and waiting, and it is $266.
