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.

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.

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.

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.

This is by far the best landscaping company I have ever hired. It is a small family run business, but these guys certainly know what they are doing, and interacting with them has been a pleasure.

It was a great experience working with this pro. We have two small flower beds and once other landscapers saw that it was a small job, they ghosted me. Not Ali, so I will stick with him and recommend him to my neighbors.

We used Red Falls to pull out our overgrown front landscaping including a tree. They also buried a drain pipe. They hauled away all of the old bushes, put out mulch, and cleaned up. Pedro was always responsive, professional and friendly. We were very, very pleased with Red Falls and will use them again in the future.

Cousins Landscaping Service helped me with my yard. I live in a small townhouse with a red brick yard and I needed help with an overgrowth of weeds between cracks in the red brick and leaves from the previous season. They were quick to make a consultation appointment and the job was done within a day. The yard looks so much better and we've had no growth of weeds yet.

Francisco and his team came to help me with my very overgrown and disorganized yard - and as you can see in these photos, they did an INCREDIBLE job. Everything was taken care of in a detail-oriented manner; Francisco was polite, respectful to me and my yard, listened to exactly what I said I needed, and was very timely and skilled in completing this job. I will be recommending his services to other homeowners, and I have already contacted him to perform other landscaping projects for me. Excellent work, period, and the pricing is exceptionally reasonable.

Needed to have a brick walkway installed in the back of my home to connect my basement entrance to my driveway. Paul was prompt and professional with scheduling and communication. This was during the 30 days of rain. Paul was excellent in keeping in touch and making sure I was aware he was monitoring the weather and would get to my path as soon as the ground was dry. True to his word the very day the ground had tried he had his crew on site to install my walkway. He installed exactly what I was looking for at a competitive price. I will definitely use Paul again for my landscaping and hardscaping needs.

Ricky met with me to discuss a a grading and sod installation project at my residence. He discussed the project in detail to be clear on what I expected, and he provided an estimate that day. I chose him out of three other contractors I considered. Ricky and crew were all personable and customer-service oriented. They communicated with me frequently to make sure they were doing things the way I wanted and were happy to re-work areas as requested. The final results were great, and the backyard is green again. Everything was done right and with care from start to finish. He was also able to begin work two days earlier than expected, which I appreciated. I highly recommend this landscaping company.
