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 called them to do my last winter cut and it was great. I’ll definitely be using Caleb as my regular lawn guy from now on. As a working woman, it’s been hard for me to find a reliable lawn pro who does great work. I’m glad I found Woods Lawncare (one less thing to worry about) and look forward to having them take care of my lawn.

I have used some lawn services that speed through and and it looks like a 7 year old mowed it. Nick took the appropriate amount of time and it looks great. This was the best experience I have had with lawn care in several years. I will continue to use him for my yard and possibly other projects.

My backyard was literally turning into a forest but he took care of it quickly and I now have a lawn again. I would definitely recommend him for the work quality and the good price.

I contacted BV Lawn Care to vacuum up leaves I had blown down to the street. They were very responsive and communicated throughout the process. The work was excellent and the price was very reasonable.

Charles was the first one to reply to my request for lawn care. He did a very good job at leaf removal but he was unable to cut back brush that day as he didn’t have his chainsaw with him. But I would use him again!

Don't you just hate lazy, unreliable, over priced lawn care providers? Well if you do, Nick is the perfect person for the job. He was finished with my yard in a short amount of time, he showed up when he said he was, AND came back another day to finish up some more of the yard due to unforseen weather circumstances. He quoted me a price and didn't try to tell me something different after the work was done!! I have nothing but great things to say about Nick and Patriot Lawn Care and I could go on and on but I'll just end with I highly recommend anyone to use his services. I plan to rehire him once my yard need some more love and care. :)

We needed to have our yard cleaned of leaves and sticks as well as the lawn cut. Woods was quick to respond, within the same day. They were always polite and the estimate was very reasonable for the work. Once the work was done we were even more impressed! They not only made our yard look amazing, but even blew the sticks and leaves off our garage roof. We have decided to have them care for our lawn from here on out. Great company!!!

Mark and his team did an excellent job on our property with lawn maintenance from start to finish. He gave us a very reasonable estimate and went to work for us the next day just as he stated. Our condo units needed a lot of work to get back in shape, and he did extra things that he saw needed to be done without additional pricing. He's definitely a keeper, and I recommend him completely for your lawn care and maintenance needs.

Scheduled dates for lawn care on two separate occasions, but the contractor never showed up either time despite telling me they would. I didn't even get a notification that they were canceling that day or anything. Never actually received the service we agreed on, despite wanting to hire them.
