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.

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.

Hiring Grays Landscaping was the best decision! Their expertise and professionalism were exceptional! Hardworking, timely, meticulous and creative insights are just a few of the qualities they possess. I highly recommend them for all your landscaping needs. My landscaping has gone from an eyesore to a beautiful oasis that I want to share with everyone. You can now find me outside enjoying the landscaping morning, noon and night, even in the rain, thanks to Grays Landscaping!

We are waiting for the siding installers to return and finish painting the trim. Then we will call PPG to return our front landscaping to its former excellent condition, as well as adding landscape border to the project. These guys are super great!

Rachel and Omar did a terrific job with landscaping, critical slope plantings, fence construction , and raised bed installation. Beyond their work, which was top qulaity btw, my husband and I were impressed by Rachel's ability to listen and craft out a landscape design that took our inputs into consideration. Other landscapers that we had interviewed were more interested in selling us their design rather than collaborate with us on one!

I would highly recommend this company for your landscaping project. I had a big project in my backyard that needed a new retaining wall, new sod, and also rebuilding a patio driveway. AL Landscaping promptly responded to my inquiry, gave a very fair estimate, and their work product was exceptional. Throughout the project, they were so hard working, punctual, never wasted anytime, battled the heat on many days, and were honest and ethical about their work. The last part is the most important. I’ve worked with contractors before who give you a good bid and then jack up the price during the course of the project. AL Landscaping was totally fair and upfront along the way, was willing to accommodate change orders, and were honest in their pricing. You can’t go wrong hiring this company and you will regret hiring anyone else!

Grays landscaping did a wonderful job with our yard. I wish I had before pictures, but before our yard was mostly dirt and we had a huge bottom deck on top of a falling apart concrete patio. Grays landscaping removed all the old concrete and bottom deck and our old grass. Placed in new soil and sod and added beautiful bark around our tree and around the trim of the yard. I love how it turned out and I look forward to doing business with them again.

After many years of having a non functional yard we decided to update everything. Folia came in and changed our entire property in a matter of weeks to create a functional landscape and outdoor space. Our backyard is now the backyard of our dreams! We are still in absolute awe of our new space! Complete with flagstone paths, gorgeous planter beds, palm trees, firepit, fountains and a beautiful new deck.. Peter is very easy to work with and friendly and listened and incorporated all our ideas into our landscape.. We could not be happier with the end result! Thank you Folia.

My husband and I hired Ernesto and his team to build a rock retaining wall in our extremely sloped backyard and we could not be happier with the results. Not only did Ernesto help with the design, like explaining what rocks would look best and where the stairs should go. He also was extremely mindful of the technical aspects of the project, ensuring proper drainage, setting a study base, etc. As a result, we now have a very sturdy and beautiful rock wall. Ernesto and his team are very hardworking, respectful, and honest. We would highly recommend Duran Landscaping for any backyard or landscaping project!

I had Maurilio do some clean-up work on the landscaping at my office building, including pruning, weeding and spreading mulch. He was extremely punctual, did the work more quickly than I expected, and it looks beautiful! I was so pleased that I asked him to come give me an estimate at our residence, which is heavily landscaped and really out of control. I was amazed at the amount of work that he was able to accomplish in a day, and for a reasonable price. I have hired Maurilio to do maintenance on my office space and will definitely hire him again for projects at our home. I would highly recommend his work, and have already passed his name on to colleagues.
