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.

LawnStarter is top of the line in terms of how they connect you with a lawn care professional. It's all managed via an app and is super easy to request, schedule, and monitor your lawn care service. My guy Hugo is great and not having to worry about begging my husband to cut the grass soon has been amazing!

Excellent customer service. Got off a little shaky on first time visit not arriving on scheduled day but initial visit when they did arrive was great. Victor communicates well and has a desire to please his customers with any lawn care questions or concerns. Valerie whom is your first initial contact is also very pleasant to talk to and is self motivated to get your service taken care of as expediently as possible. I do recommend them for your lawn care needs.

Jesus and his Son did an awesome job on cleaning up dead foliage from the freeze by trimming back shrubs, roses, lantanas, etc. They also weeded my flower beds, put down mulch and cut my lawn. The price was very reasonable and they cleaned up clippings and mulch quite nicely! Jesus knows lawn care and is very knowledgeable! Thank you both very much!

Brandon and his fellow crew members did an excellent job on my back yard lawn. He responded very quickly and was able to get me in on a Saturday, which I’m sure is one of their busiest days. I would definitely use his services again. Thanks for taking care of the job so quickly!

I hired Camron's Precision Landscaping to do my lawn when I moved into a new house. The house had sat empty for about a month before I moved in and by the time I got around to having someone come out it was considerably grown over. Since contacting them they have been nothing but responsive and professional. They very clearly love what they do and take considerable pride in their work. The price was extremely fair and I couldn't be happier with the result. They will be my lawn care provider from now on and I give them the highest possible recommendation.

It is always encouraging to find great examples of good customer service and professionalism. The lawn care provided by PCC service LLC went above and beyond my expectations (which are VERY high). Highly recommend! Great job on yard trimming of an overgrown yard with grass over a foot high, and on the day promised. I would highly recommend this company and will continue to keep them in my 5 star contacts for future projects.

I hired Junior to get rid of weeds around the house and vines that were growing on the side of the house. He was very responsive through messaging, flexible with scheduling and arrived on time to the appointment! He listened to what our goals were for getting the area tidy again and delivered on what we asked! Everything was simple to schedule and quality of work was good so I definitely recommend hiring Junior for your lawn care needs.

Damien came out same day to quote the work. I had a lot of dead plants and leaves and some bushes needing shaped up. His price was reasonable and he was able to do the work within a week. He returned as promised on the day of service and he and his crew quickly cleaned up and bagged all the debris for next day trash service. Bridge Point Services is now my new regular lawn care service provider.
