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.

Our lawn was a bit of a jungle after we were canceled on by two different services. Urban Quadrant was awesome—fast response and booking, and great communication. They went above and beyond to work around rainy weather to finish our project. Attention to detail was also great; plants and trees were carefully trimmed around, and the lawn looks fantastic!

Was looking for a lawn care service. I found that Espinozas Lawn care was the best value. They arrived when they said they would, gave me a very reasonable bid and they were able to do the first mow on the same day. I was impressed their attitude and their work. I have already recommended them to several other potential clients. I also liked the fact that they did more than just mow and edge so are available to do other yard maintenance should I have need.

We hired Enrique to do lawn and garden work on a long term basis. He surprised us and came that weekend to start the job and a week later our yard already looks amazing. I’m looking forward to having Landview Landscaping care for our yard long term.

We had been trying to find help with lawn care, and everything seemed to be a dead end. Not with Dale. He was able to fit us in during an already busy time. He does a great job, is thorough, communicative, and our yard looks great! Highly recommend and we will be working with him from now on.

I will recommend Joaquin to everyone I know who is needing yard/lawncare! I was very fearful hiring someone I did not know however, Joaquin responded quickly and was very respectful. He also arrived to give me a quote when he said he would😊 The amount of work needed was a lot and the quality of the work was outstanding😍 Joaquin is very kind, respectful and incredibly hard- working. I hope he will continue to beautify and ❤ care for my yard for a long time!!

Anthony and Darryl have been great so far. I needed help getting leaves raked, lawn mowed and edged, flower bed cleaned up, new beauty bark and help solving some muddy pathways. They came out to do an estimate and to provide some recommendations within 24 hours of first contacting them. They were able to come do the work within the same week as the initial request. In a VERY short amount of time they transformed my yard and took care of work that would have taken me days to do on my own. The cost was appropriate for the amount of work they completed. It would have cost me more to purchase all the material and tools necessary to complete the work myself. They are both very eager to provide the best customer experience and are super friendly and warm to communicate with. I will absolutely use them again whenever I need work done. It is not a surprise that they are so highly rated, 10 out of 10! :-)

Anthony and Darryl were very responsive, punctual, professional, and worked with me as a team to meet my lawn care needs. They even listened to my future project needs and gave me some ideas as they are fellow Carpenters with experience in installing pavers and even fencing. I’ve contacted several landscaping/lawn services people who only asked for my address and said they will be at my property soon, but either never came, gave any details, or further communicated anything else beyond that. However, I contacted these guys on Sunday 7/24, they were out on my property Monday 7/25, and then showed up the next day Tuesday 7/26 to get the job done! I work in a hybrid WFH environment and they were willing to meet with me early at 9am before I had to head out. That is dedication and listening to the customer’s needs! On top of that, they did this project during the HEAT WAVE in 90 degree weather with no complaints. My initial cost was less than what was quoted originally, however my property needed more mulch, and they were very transparent that they underbid and had to go get more. They went out and bought more on the spot. I was very impressed that they drove several times to go get extra materials for my property- mulch and rocks for filling my trench I dug up due to standing water in the backyard. I highly recommend giving these guys your business if you like communication, transparency, excellent results and delivery! Thanks again Anthony and Darryl! I had fun working with you and your positive attitudes in the scorching sun!
