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.

Was able to take care of my lawn on relatively short notice. Price was excellent and the lawn certainly looked much better than when I mow it myself!

Chuck is a true professional and very easy to work with. He is punctual and keeps us informed when potential scheduling conflicts arise. His rates are great and we couldn't ask for better service. If you're looking for lawn care in central Texas, give Good Guys Lawn Care a ring.

Vacant and neglected residential rental property overgrown with tall grass, shrubbery and vines on all sides. City was threating Code Inforcement Violation. Called L&L Lawn Care and explained situation. Larry Rogers the owner of L&L Lawn Care jumped right on it the same day and did an "AMAZING" job. I was so grateful and impressed with the work and the fact he drove almost 40minutes up from the next town to help that I doubled the quoted estimate without any hesitation or regrets. I will be using L&L Lawn Care again!!!

Chuck provided excellent and punctual lawn care service at the most affordable price I could find on the market. After getting in touch with him via Thumbtack, he was cutting my grass the next morning at 8 o'clock! I have a very busy schedule and Chuck was able to do all transactions electronically and send me a picture of services rendered, so I wasn't tied to being home while he worked. I will continue to use Good Guys Lawn Care and recommend to friends.

Chuck was super nice! But I thought he had a crew and a professional truck for equipment etc. he showed up alone and in his own personal truck with little equipment. He was on time! But he never edged or blew the leaves etc. the yard looked good enough but it wasn't really NEEDING a whole lot this time. This was mainly a trial run. If we ever needed anything major done, I don't know that he could do the work alone without the equipment necessary. Again, super great guy but I'm needing/wanting professionals for my lawn care needs.

Greg Powell did the best job on mowing my lawn that anybody has, including myself. The job was done at 5213 J. I. Bruce Drive, Temple, Texas. It took less than an hour and when finished, my yard looked absolutely great, the best it has looked in the 15 years I've lived here. Greg was right on time and very carefully mowed and edged the entire yard. I can't think of anything that was not excellent and I definitely will recommend him to everyone I know. My friends and acquaintances would well to use his business. I hope he will build his business larger and larger. He deserves it. Absolutely. Marlin Mosley
