Juan has been stopping by for awhile, leaving his business card. I live in Burlington. I have never used a landscaping service before. I am getting older and needed to have things spruced up in the front yard before an appraisal for a refinance. I had a short timeline to get this accomplished. Juan's partner was a great contact, as she is able to help with details. Juan speaks fair english, and he is very patient when discussing things. I put together a list, and texted a copy to them so that there would be a clear understanding of what I needed done. Juan did more than what I expected, and turned an overgrown front yard into a well groomed, very tidy and presentable area. The time frame he needed to complete it in was short, and he finished ahead of schedule. I am now considering hiring him for next year so that I can focus my time and energy on other things. He works quickly, and tirelessly, with energy that surprised me. He got lots done in a very short time. I did check the business license with the state and found they are bonded, and have active insurance. I think you should always check anyone out that you are trusting your home to. They have no complaints I could find. I am so impressed that I feel compelled to help their business by sharing my experience. I usually don't do that. I think your hiring this business, and getting Juan in your yard will be a liberating experience. I am so happy to have this burden off my l plate. I am very pleased with them. Joseph K.See more

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.  

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.

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.

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.

Rafael and crew did a thorough yard cleanup at my house. They worked quickly and efficiently and made sure I was satisfied with the results. Ruiz Landscaping will be my lawn care specialists from now on.

Outstanding work. Our yard never looked better. Professional and thorough from the first phone call to raking up the last blade of grass. If you are thinking about hiring professionals to take care of your lawn, do yourself a favor and get in touch with Smitty.

Bottom-line, Garza’s landscape solved my problems. I have a decent sized backyard at one of my rentals in MV that needed much TLC. Had some construction debris needed to be cleaned out, lawn mowed, and flower beds de-weeded and mulched on a very tight timeframe. His team responded early the next day and they worked fast with a high degree of quality. I’ve had many contractors over at the property and hands-down his team was the BEST; they have a great attention to detail and are willing to work to understand what my needs were and find a way to accomplish it in an affordable and efficient manner. I will continue to have Garza’s landscape service the property going forward. If you are looking for landscaping services at an affordable price, do not hesitate to reach out to these guys—they’ll take care of you. Highly recommend! Attached a couple before/after’s as well.
