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.

Erik came out the day we spoke on the phone to give an estimate. I am new to the area and moved into a home where the front and back yard had been neglected. Erik came out and did a fantastic job at a great price. The yard looks great and we will be having weekly maintenance. If you are in need of lawn care I highly recommend EcoSource, give Erik a call!

We just moved into our home last week and the yard needed some love quickly! I reached out to Esteban on July 4th after another company said they couldn’t accommodate us. He arrived first thing this morning (Monday) ready to work! He was able to take care of the lawn quickly and it looks great! Can’t wait to take on more projects with him and his continued service. Thanks so much!!

Arranged services via thumbtack and advised Jesse that we just moved into a new house and needed someone to mow our lawn -- never gave sizes, just advised that it was a normal sized lawn. Our house is a new build and we are NOT a corner lot, we have the smallest yard on our street. We asked for an estimate from our neighbor's gardener and he quoted us $25 to mow bimonthly. We told Jesse of this and he offered to match the estimate we received, without seeing the yard. He made two mowing service trips to our house and then never came back. A month went by and I thought he was skipping our appointments due to all the rain we were having. I just texted him tonight to see if he was going to come back and he shot back a reply accusing us of lying about our yard size and wanting him to provide services "for nothing". He concluded that "he doesn't need customers like you [us]" and that he has five star reviews so he doesn't care. My issues with this kind of response, not even referring to being accused of lying, is that (1) he just stopped coming without ever letting us know that he wanted more money or that he was not going to mow our lawn anymore; (2) he collected payment at the end of each service by knocking on our door and collecting payment in person -- if he really had an issue with the size, why didn't he say so when he was collecting payment from us, promising to show up in 2 weeks; (3) if the lawn size was truly larger than he was expecting, why didn't he raise this issue before he mowed it the first time? He has sent us a barrage of insulting text messages all evening and it angers me that he accused us of lying. I don't know what kind of customer Jesse wants, but from our experience, it's probably someone who can hear thoughts as he doesn't ever address any concerns he has and just stops showing up, then accuses you of lying. We just called my neighbor's gardener and he was happy to have gained another customer. Good riddance and if this review helps even one person to avoid having a similar experience, I'm glad I took the time to post a review.
