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.

Start contacting landscapers near you to get free estimates and start planning your project today.

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.

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. 

Contact the best lawn care services near you to see what kinds of services they provide.

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.

Max was amazing! He was easy to speak with and extremely knowledgeable! I had one of the ugliest landscapes in my neighborhood before Max came and gave it a total makeover! Now it’s one of the best in the neighborhood! He worked so hard and didn’t stop until the work was completed perfectly. I will definitely be calling Max again for any other landscaping jobs and would highly recommend him!

As an HOA, we needed landscaping for a small project this Fall, and a large project each Spring. DLES's responsiveness, professionalism, and prices won them the projects. Their recent quality work confirmed that they deserved the huge Spring project.

A to Z provided landscaping service. The project looked just as I had envisioned. It was completed in a timely manner. Moreover, the area was cleaned-up nicely when the job was completed. The firm is headed by a young man who is industrious and trustworthy. He is the sort oh chap that one hopes to be successful.

This landscaper is the "real deal". He did exactly what I wanted efficiently AND he brought the materials I wanted to amend the soil. He came out the day I contacted him to assess what was needed; he returned the next day to do the job. I plan to hire him again.

Scott was so easy to work with! I’m clueless when it comes to landscaping, so he chose all of the flowers, plants, mulch, and stones for us, making the process so simple. He had the job done in about 2 days, and the difference between before and after is like night and day. I would highly recommend him!

Greenbriar kept my cost concerns in mind and really worked with me to design a landscape to suit my needs. They also had the entire project finished in a week, including the time it took to kill the grass! I had assumed that my quote would involve privacy trees that were only little saplings, but they were actually 4-5' trees! Very pleased and will choose Greenbriar again for future projects.

Chad was very communicative with me regarding the project which given my adventure with other landscapers is a huge plus. The big thing that to keep in mind is that he has you sign a contract for the work which works to hold both parties accountable which is refreshing. So, make sure that the work you want is fully on there as he'll do what's on the contract. Overall, it was a pleasant experience and nice to know there are guys out there who just want to do the work.

I hired Max Hill to do some landscaping for me, he responded quickly to my email and came to my house that day. We discussed what we could do and what our vision was and he was told us the pros and cons. He came the next day and planted 2 rose bushes for me which I love. I will have come and do the rest of our yard as he his extremely reasonable . I highly recommend him.

With all the rain over the last month, it took a bit longer than I had hoped before Ivan could start on my project. But he worked it into the schedule as soon as he was able. As promised, he and his assistant, Gabe, came yesterday morning and worked HARD all day long to complete the job. It looks wonderful! I was treated very professionally and congenially throughout the process. I will call on Ivan Carrasco at SIC whenever I need landscaping help, and I strongly encourage others to do the same. You won't be sorry.
