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.

David is very professional. The fact that loves what he does makes him most effective and dependable. Because of these qualities, he also did not have to compete for my landscaping job. Now he does both, gardening and landscaping. He understands customer service.

Landscape Therapy helped rein in my overgrown front landscaping, getting rid of several unwanted hard-to-maintain shrubs, replacing with some simple but beautiful plants and creating a more clean, minimalist look overall. The new yard will be much easier to take care of. And all at a reasonable price. Thank you.

I hired GRG Landscaping to remodel a 40 year old retaining wall in my front yard - the wall is 50 feet long and 4 feet high at its tallest point - this was no small project! Ramiro and his team did a fantastic job! I was able to discuss my ideas on the new wall and materials with Ramiro - despite myself being a woman he did not take advantage of that and gave me technically sound advice and his pricing was very reasonable. His team was very self sufficient, hard working, and very respectful. The new wall came out beautiful! Since then I have hired GRG Landscaping for more work: tree/shrub removal, concrete walkway leveling, and fixing a basement retaining wall - I cannot wait for them to start! I highly recommend them for all landscaping work!

Our experience with Cousins Landscaping was very good. Pablo got in touch with us as soon as we requested an estimate. He scheduled an appointment to come out in the next day, and he arrived on time and did a thorough review with us on everything we needed to have done. Pablo got an estimate to us in a day, and we asked him to begin work at the beginning of the next week. He and his team were right on time and worked all day, checking in regularly to ensure they were doing what we wanted. The landscaping they did was beautiful - mulching, weeding and edging, planting plants and bushes. We're going to have them do our regular mowing and we'll also have them back for some other landscaping work we need to have done. Thank you for doing such a great job for us!

Santos and the crew were excellent. Showed up on time and completed the work quicker than anticipated. Backyard lawn looks great. Based on that experience, we hired them to do work in the front of the house, including landscaping and lawn repairs.

We hired Reinaldo @ Del Ray Landscaping to remove the white rocks from the plant bed in our front yard. He did a reasonable job, however, we still found quite a rocks left around the edges and towards the back of the plant bed, otherwise I would have given him 5 stars. It was lot of rocks, at least 10 wheel barrows full. A nice guy and would hire him again. We changed the original scope of work because we decided to do the planting, landscape lights and irrigation system ourselves.

Our home was a foreclosure and the yard was basically a jungle after years of neglect. Homero was great to work with! His team came and totally transformed our front and backyard in two days. We are so happy with the results and will definitely work with Lucas Tree and Landscaping again!

Reinaldo did an excellent job evaluating my project, explaining my different options and prices, then performed the service quite well. The scheduling didn't go exactly as planned, but all work was completed within a reasonable time frame. I would recommend Del Ray Landscaping for any yard work you have.

We moved into a new house with a backyard that had grown pretty wild--David took care of tree pruning, tree removal, and removing a huge old pile of logs in our backyard. I appreciated that David was on time and professional-- also had competitive rates-- he came out twice for estimates at no cost. I will hire again for more landscaping work.

Very fast response and good customer service! Got a free estimate in the morning and landscaping was done the same day. They worked very quickly and did a great job, removal of old plants included. Not sure how the price compares to other companies since they were the only ones who replied to my job fast enough but I am very happy with the quick, quality result.

JP Landscaping service more than met our needs. They turned a yard overrun with weeds, leaves and unruly bushes into one that is pleasing to see. I smile when I pull into my driveway now. JP and his team are personal, professional, and punctual. In fact, they even arrived early one day! The online communication was great too. I recommend them and will use them again.

Athan and Peter were terrific! They were accommodating during estimate process. The estimate was provided quickly. I even asked for some additional work and they provided an estimate almost immediately. During the project, they and their crew were accommodating to comments and the work result is outstanding! From start to finish it was a great experience. I would whole heartedly recommend them for any landscaping needs you may have.

I purchased my home and the landscaping had not been maintained in over three years. David was outstanding!!! He completely transformed my landscape, which was not maintained in the past three year before I purchased my house a couple months ago. He trimmed and pruned trees and bushes and brought in fresh mulch to add throughout my property. He cleaned up overgrown wild grass that looked like hay, created a walking path, added top soil and laid sod to cover up tree roots and muddy areas of my yard. He also planted and transplanted new plants that I purchased to add in once bare-looking area. David also came up with a solution to create a river bed of rocks to channel drainage water. Aside from being competitively priced, his attention to detail, professionalism, courteousness, and strong work ethic was quickly noticed. David takes much pride in his work that I will keep him on hire to continue maintaining, fertilizing, and up-keeping the tremendous work he put into this project. He definitely worked and made my landscape look great as if it were for is own home. David's hard work was so well noticed that several of my neighbors have asked him to do work on their properties. I am very satisfied with the work, and if I'm able to will post some before and after pictures because my words just don't do enough justice for the actual results of my lawn.

These guys are amazing! We recently moved and have been managing lawncare for the tenants in our house which hasn’t been easy. Craigie’s Landscape came and did mulching for us, as well as some much needed additional cleanup and it looks light years better. They were very timely and also affordable, and their work turned out beautifully. I plan on setting up a long term contract with them, and I’m confident they will be very reliable.

We had a great experience with Jose and his landscaping service. We needed work done quickly in advance of a home sale. Jose turned an overgrown jungle into a clean, well-manicured backyard in a single day!! We were across the country when the work was needed and Jose handled everything! He picked up materials for a small fee, did all the work and then took completion photos that we actually used to list the house. I highly recommend Jose and his company!

For any kind of masonry/landscape work, the price starts very high. It was really difficult to find a contractor who would repair our small patio for a reasonable rate. Hauling gravel and sand and lifting stones was also not a good idea for us based on our health issues. Danny P. and his uncle made the work look easy, and even provided some of the materials. They were a pleasure to work with and the price was right! We would definitely hire them again.
