My goal was to find a new lawn services company for my needs during the growing season. As a replacement for my previous provider, Kevin's group came promptly as per our discussions and did a great job on a lawn that had not been cut yet. Both workers worked diligently until the work was completed. They were both friendly and did an excellent job. I am highly impressed with Burroughs Lawn Services and feel lucky to have found such an excellent provider of lawn care services.

Fields Irrigation did the initial irrigation install at my house. They have been maintaining that system, as well as providing me with annual turf care. They are very good about making sure that the system is cared for, and tested properly every year. My yard has never looked better. They have been taking care of my yard for over 4 years now.

I wanted my back yard grass removed and replaced with new sod and flower beds rejuvenated and mulched. Corey was personable and professional when he came to do an estimate. He asked questions to completely understand what I wanted and promptly forwarded a real, business estimate (not one scribbled on a piece of paper). He kept me informed of his schedule for the installation day (weather and sod availability concerns) and arrived right on time. I am extremely happy with the results of both sod replacement and flower bed work. Corey and David worked diligently, and everything was done with care and an obvious desire to exceed my expectations. My neighbors commented how impressed they were with not only the results but the attention to detail. I highly recommend JCD Improving for any lawn or landscaping project. They will be my first and only call for any other work!

I had an immediate need to hire someone to mow, trim and edge at a reasonable price. Mike's quote was excellent and various additional services are available at more than reasonable rates. I wasn't expecting to find someone to hire for lawn care service on the first day in, but Mike was affordable, patient and willing to address all my questions and concerns. Hopefully, the results of the services performed will exceed my expectations!

Gibson Landscaping has been taking care of my yard, almost 2 acres, since it began. My yard has never looked better and I cannot wait for fall planting. The owner has some great ideas for new planting. Gibson landscape has been prompt in my cuts, which has been challenging with all the rain. My grass is lush but needs more frequent cuts. He is right on top of it. He says he does most of his residential cuts on Thursday and Friday so the yards are party ready. As a real estate agent, he has been quick to respond to my SOS's to clean up my listings. The owner and his workmen are polite, respectful and agreeable. Finally I have the perfect lawn service. I highly recommend Gibson Landscaping!

Rodney & Zach redid 2 plantings for me, making a rock border and mulching around my flowers and bushes to make one large area so I do not have to mow around all the individual plantings. They did the same around my 8 tree border for the same reason but without rocks. It looks very nice. They gave me a quote, a time, came on time, did the job and even sprayed the weeds in my driveway as a bonus. Good job, very nice. They are going to do my mowing, too, when the weather gets hot.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What's the best way to maintain your lawn?

Keeping a lawn lush and green requires consistent mowing, weeding, watering, fertilizing and more. If your lawn is particularly large, it may make sense to hire a full-service lawn care provider. Whether you take a DIY approach or bring in the experts, maintaining your lawn requires a range of tasks.

Plan to mow the lawn often, allowing it stay longer than may seem convenient — longer grass is healthier grass. The general rule is to cut off no more than a third of the grass blade. This helps prevent damage to the lawn as well as keeping weeds from taking root. It’s also important to remove any weeds, then prevent new ones from growing. In spring, consider spraying a pre-emergent herbicide on your lawn to prevent crabgrass and other types of weeds from sprouting from seed. During other seasons, broadleaf weeds like dandelions can be pulled by hand or sprayed with weed killers. The best time to water your lawn is early in the morning, allowing the sun to help dry the grass. Make sure to thoroughly soak the lawn so that the water penetrates several inches into the ground.

Lawn care also requires feeding; look for a mixture of fast- and slow-release fertilizers that include nitrogen. Some lawns also benefit from aeration, which creates small holes to let air, water and nutrients penetrate the grass roots. Although most homeowners can manage these tasks on their own, a full-service lawn care company can handle them on a regular schedule, taking the guesswork out of maintaining a beautiful lawn.

How do you look after your lawn?

Having a beautiful lawn doesn’t just happen by magic. A multi-pronged approach to lawn care will result in a healthy lawn that will have your neighbors green with envy. The national average price for multi-service lawn care ranges from $40 to $50. Whether you tackle the project yourself or hire a lawn care professional, looking after your lawn requires consistent work. A baseline of lawn care is keeping your grass mowed and your irrigation system working properly. Fertilizing plants and grasses, as well as trimming and pruning foliage, may promote the health of your plants and lawn. Many lawn care pros offer different packages with varying monthly fees depending on your lawn size and the services you desire. Here are a few examples of average lawn care prices:

  • 1,000- to 2,500-square-foot lawn: $60-$90 per month
  • 5,000-square-foot lawn or larger: $110-$150 per month.
    • Includes lawn maintenance, cleanups and irrigation repairs. The company trims shrubs, pulls weeds, blows out yard waste, fertilizes and does minor irrigation repairs.
  • Up to 8,000-square-foot property: $30 per week/$120 per month.
  • 8,001- to 15,000-square-foot property: $35 per week/$140 per month.
  • 15,001- to 20,000-square-foot property: $40 per week/$160 per month.
    • Includes 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.

How much is lawn care service?

Ensuring a lush, green lawn is so much more than simply mowing and watering the grass; it’s also pulling existing weeds and preventing future ones, fertilizing with the right nutrients, and coaxing new grass to grow in patchy spots. For many homeowners, a full-service lawn care company is the best way to maintain a beautiful lawn. The cost for professional lawn care depends on the size of the lawn and the services the homeowner chooses, as well as the location. For the typical suburban residence, the national average cost of full-service lawn care maintenance is $40-$50 per hour. Depending on the size of your lawn, that can cost you just $100 per month or more than $1,000 per month, but the average is about $350 per month. Most monthly services include a weekly cut, especially in the spring, as well as edging, weeding, and blowing the driveway, sidewalks and porches.

What should I do to my lawn in the spring?

Spring is the perfect time to start thinking about lawn care. The ground is recovering from a long, cold winter, plants are starting to grow, and the earth is ready to receive new seeds. When the weather starts to warm, the first step in your lawn care strategy is deciding what you would like to achieve and what you need to do to make it happen. Your next step is to start cleaning up. Rake your lawn free of decomposing leaves, trim back shrubs and branches, and clear out all the weeds. Once your lawn is cleared of debris, tend to your irrigation system. Test your system and decide whether any repairs are necessary. Now it’s time to nourish the lawn. If you opt to aerate your lawn in spring, the national average cost is $70-$100. Consult with your lawn care pro, as some regions benefit from only aerating in fall. If you have bare spots, you can overseed the lawn to encourage new growth. Next you’ll want to fertilize the lawn to ensure it grows in rich and lush. Professional fertilization services may range from under $50 to over $200, depending on your lawn size. If you have a bad weed problem, you (or your lawn care pro) can apply pre-emergent herbicide to prevent a weed outbreak. Make sure the irrigation system is routinely watering your lawn, and then enjoy watching the grass grow.

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.
