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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a landscaper or lawn care professional when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a landscaper or lawn care professional, you can take safety precautions on the worksite by not making any physical contact, keeping at least 6 feet between you and the pro(s) at all times and using digital payment platforms instead of cash or check.

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.

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.

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.

I've hired many landscapers in the past and many of them have either failed or disappointed me in many ways. Then finally I was lucky enough to find Espinozas Lawn Care. This company was by far the best lawn care company I've worked with. They were very responsive, courteous, knowledgeable, honest and punctual. Above all their work was by far the best work I have ever received from any landscapers. My yard has never been sharper, cleaner or more fantastic. I want to keep working with them on regular basis in the future. If you need yard work, you can not possibly go wrong with Espinozas Lawn Care company based on my experience. Thank you so much for the great work that you've done for me Espinozas Lawn Care company. They are HIGHLY, I do mean HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!!!

I absolutely love using 12th Lady Lawn Care! When I was looking for a professional Desiree came out to give me a quote right away and promptly scheduled my regular services. She always communicates what she is doing and what she plans to do to improve my lawn. Hiring her was the best decision I could have made for my lawn.

A Girls Lawncare did an awesome job with my lawn! She went out on the agreed date, and she fixed up my lawn. After that, she wasn’t satisfied because my grass was longer than usual, so she came back the next day and made it even better! That just goes to show how much care A Girls Lawncare put into the job. I highly suggest this company, you will expect professionalism, and a perfect looking lawn! This will definitely be not the first time I will ask her to do my lawn!

Salazar’s Landscaping did an AMAZING job on my front and back yard. They were punctual, professional, cleaned everything after they finished, and didn't cause any damage to my property. I highly recommend them for lawn care and will continue to hire them for services in the future. I am extremely delighted with my lawn service.

I talked to 12th Lady Lawn Care about mowing my Dad's fairly large and heavy lawn, as he had mowed it himself for 56 years, and now turning 81, it was too much for him now. They came right away, did a great job, and it has been an enormous weight off of my dad's shoulders. I appreciate them so much for that! He has always done EVERYTHING himself. I truly wish I could get them for my yard, but I live up in Everett! Otherwise, I would love to have them here.

The team at Espinozas Lawn Care we’re very professional and reasonable in their pricing. I have a 2 acre property that needs a-lot of attention and they patiently listened to all of the things that I wanted to do. They were willing to help me figure out the best, lowest cost way to accomplish my landscaping projects. They pay great attention to the smallest details and make sure that you’re completely satisfied with their work. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends .

I selected 12th Lady LC to supplement the care of my lawn based on the great reviews and high ratings received from others, who have employed its services. I have found my own experiences to echo these reviews. Desiree is a professional and thoughtful manager/owner of a LC service that provides exceptional quality of service at a fair price. In particular, the trimming and maintenance of grass along our many garden beds is better than what I have managed to do in more than 16 years. Desiree personally invests herself in the work performed by 12th Lady LC; showing up to supervise the service provided as well as performing a portion thereof. She is mindful of the cut of the grass taking great care not to damage it. As a result of the above, my yard looks as good as it ever has. I have no doubt this will continue to be the case.
