Jeremy Yamaguchi has disrupted the lawn care industry with his company Lawn Love.
The Uber-like service is making its way to Boca Raton where you can receive an estimate for lawn care for your yard, schedule the service and pay for it all through Lawn Love’s website or mobile app.
Lawn Love founder and CEO Yamaguchi said his business is similar to Uber in the sense of how it changed the taxi industry. But different because instead of competing with all the small taxi companies, Lawn Love brings on mom-and-pop lawn care companies and equips them with technology to increase their workload and become more efficient.
“We partner with them and give them tools,” he said.
The company helps create job routes and clusters jobs together so lawn care can be provided effectively. The technology allows the companies to charge their clients on the spot rather than through an old-fashioned paper invoice.
“We bring this antiquated service to modern times,” he said. “The industry was stuck in the 20th century. I had the skills and wanted to build the solution.”
He said he mowed lawns as a kid and decided to put his software engineering and product development background to use in the lawn care field.
And with warm weather year round, he said Boca is an ideal market for his company to expand into.
He said Lawn Love is in 38 states and over 100 cities. The company has helped complete more than 300,000 lawn care jobs. He started the company, which is based in San Diego, Cali., in 2014.
The service enables its users to instantly schedule, review, and pay for various types of yard work through the use of a mobile app or website. The platform is powered by satellite imaging software which reviews a property and generates a quote in less than two minutes.
The technology eliminates the need to have to meet a lawn care worker at your home just for a quote before a service is even scheduled.
Lawn Love has recently partnered with hundreds of lawn care businesses across the area. The company aims to provide them with innovative scheduling, job routing and payment software that will help them grow their businesses.
“The average lawn care company in Florida has only two employees and lack the resources to modernize their business models. We are trying to democratize software for small businesses that will allow them to compete with dominating, corporate lawn care providers such as TruGreen,” Yamaguchi said.
Each independent contractor goes through a rigorous background check to assess their level of lawn care experience before they can begin work.
Users can schedule a wide range of services including lawn mowing, weeding, aeration, gutter clearing and more.
