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.

My previous lawn care company flaked and left me in a bad position right before my son's birthday party in the backyard. I messaged Mykel and hoped for a miracle that he could come through and he did! Thank you for the super fast response and service!

Sean and his crew are miracle workers! The pictures speak for themselves. The quick response communication from the initial request to the completion of the work was phenomenal. They were punctual, and wasted no time to get the job done. My family will definitely use them again for any future lawn care needs.

I contacted John's mowing on July 9th. I appreciate the response time from me submitting for quotes for mowing services to John's mowing messaging me. Which was no more than 5 minutes. That speaks volumes to me. I asked if they could come out and look at my parents lawn so I can get an exact quote of how much it would cost. Not only did they come out but, was also able to take care of our lawn right then and there. They were professional and did an amazing job. I will be using them consistently going forward.

Overall , a very bad experience . When I contacted them to have my lawn cut , the original price was $30. I explained my lawn was very long, so the price was raised to $60. I was fine with this since it was long . When the worker arrived , he saw how long it was and said he’d have to charge $100. That seemed High, but I was ok with it since my front and back were very long . After less than an hour , he stopped and said that’s as low as he can do today . It was cut to a “manageable “ amount , but not as low as it should be . It was still at least 4-5 inches . I know it was long, but still for $100 it should have totally been taken care of. The next day , I complained and the manager agreed to come out again Tuesday for no charge . Tuesday came and went , I reached out several times . No call , no show . Overall I am disappointed with this service and I recommend seeing someone else for your lawn care needs .

Thank You Leon!!! I was beginning to give up on the hope of finding professional people that care about customer service and then Four Feet In A Yard answered my plea for help. The lawn service company I was using decided not to service my area any longer and notified me the night before my scheduled service. It had been 2 weeks and the yard was looking pretty bad. I asked Four Feet In A Yard if they would have time to take a look at it and I got a reply back that it was done. Not just that they went by and looked, but that they had already finished the job! I came home from work to a beautifully manicured lawn. I will definitely be using their services on a regular schedule and will tell everyone I know about this incredible company!!

We were in desperate need of lawn and general grounds work on our vacant rental. We live out if state and the city had posted notice on our property w/10days to get things under control. Marilyn called back quickly and was easy to talk to, and willing to get on it as soon as they could look at it and schedule it. Surprisingly she called me that very night from my yard in Chesapeake and gave me a clear picture (verbally) as she and Leon walked around the property. It was MUCH WORSE then I thought! Grass was CHEST HIGH!? She assured me they would do the job but might be a few days before they could fit me in, (understandably) The VERY NEXT MORNING I recieved a message at 7:30am with before and after pictures!!?! Once again I was quite surprised! Marilyn wrote me that now I didnt have to worry about the city getting after us! Their caring (and crazy fast) response made a lasting impression. I realize this is long but I needed to explain this to convey how incredibly fast and compassionate they were in taking care of our situation! I HIGHLY recommend "Four Feet in a Yard" for any and ALL your lawn care needs! They are real people with big hearts, and unfortunately that is rare these days. Gratefully, Stephanie Encinia

Full disclosure-i did not use Taskabee Hive (or any other company) to take care of my lawn. I ended up mowing it myself, as I had a small area to mow, and I borrowed a mower to do it (mine was broken). My 5-star review is strictly for my overall interaction with Taskabee Hive. The owner responded to me at 6am (I submitted an inquiry at 2am!). Unfortunately, I did not see his response until much later in the day. He gave me an estimate based on my description of the lawn. I described the job as a small back yard area with a patch of very overgrown weeds. I thought the estimate was high, as the back yard is literally just a strip/path of grass in either side of a concrete walkway. I explained this to the owner. He offered a discount, and suggested I send photos so he could give a closer estimate of the rate for the job. He stated that he wanted to do what he could to help me out. He stated that if I could get back with him immediately, he would have the job done today; otherwise by late afternoon the following day. Unfortunately, when I later saw his response, my neighbor had offered his mower, and I’d already cut the grass. I know this post is long. But I value good customer service , and I want to be fair and honest. Taskabee Hive did not do any work for me. But the owner’s punctual responses, his willingness to do all he could to help me, and to negotiate or offer me the best rates he could—these virtues warrant a great rating for customer service. Many companies and individuals miss the mark for that these days.
