On-demand booking is a staple of the modern economy, and why should lawn care be any different? Lawn Love is an online platform and app which lets people quickly and easily get an online quote for lawn service in their area.
In this article, we’ll guide you on how to book your first service with Lawn Love. If you are a lawn care provider or own a lawn care small business, we’ll also provide details on working with Lawn Love and how to apply to become a Lawn Pro with the company. Finally, we’ll get to some frequently asked questions.
What Is Lawn Love?
Lawn Love bills itself as the Uber of professional lawn care services. It offers on-demand booking of lawn care services via a mobile app or their website, lawnlove.com.
Founded by CEO Jeremy Yamaguchi, the service lets people book one-time or recurring lawn care services in over 100 cities across the country. These services include mowing, trimming, aeration, sprinkler repair, and even holiday light installation.
Lawn Love yard care specialists, called lawn pros, are independent contractors who can accept jobs through the Lawn Love online portal. All payment is done online, so money doesn’t need to change hands during or after a job. Lawn Pros accept jobs, conduct the work, and then receive payment from Lawn Love within 72 hours.
How Lawn Love Works for Clients
For clients, booking with Lawn Love is as easy as getting a two-minute quote and listing a request for a new job. From there, local skilled lawn care pros can accept the work and get the job done. Payment is processed securely online, and all you need to do is leave a review for how happy you are with the service.
How to Get a Quote
To get a quote, first go to Lawn Love’s website. On the homepage, you’ll provide them with a zip code to get started, as they’ll need to confirm they provide service in your area. If they do, you’ll then need to give them a home address and a way to contact you on the next page.
It looks like this:
Once you’ve provided them with those details, it’s time to give them specifics about the job. You’ll share basic details about the property and then let them know what kind of services you need help with. Lawn Love teams can do everything from lawn mowing to weeding to advanced yard work, including granular fertilizers and aeration.
After that, you’ll tell them how often you want the work done and when you want it to begin.
Once you’ve made your choices, you will get a quote within two minutes based on location and job size. Like what you see? Confirm the gig, and then the job will go out to local lawn care pros. A team can accept the job, and then they’ll show up on that day to get the work done. Easy.
Working With Lawn Love
If you’re a lawn care provider looking to meet new clients in your area or on the hunt for an occasional gig to supplement your business, Lawn Love can be a great way to pick up extra work on your terms. You choose the jobs you want and get paid within 72 hours.
How It Works
First, you’ll need to apply and be accepted as a lawn pro. The application process, which we’ll cover in the next section, takes only about 10 minutes. The major requirements are that you’re eligible to work in the United States and have your own truck or SUV and equipment. Once you are approved, you can start taking jobs right away.
If you’re accepted, you’ll get access to the Lawn Love pro platform, which shows what’s available in your area. They tell you the details of the job, where it’s located, and what it pays. Pick a job you want, and it goes on your schedule.
In your pro account platform, they’ll give you updated work orders and keep your schedule. Show up at the right time, do the work, and that’s it. The client will review your performance on a scale of 1-5 stars. The more 5-star reviews you earn, the more priority you get when claiming new jobs, and the more you’ll earn for each new job.
After the job is complete, Lawn Love will pay you within 72 hours. They can pay via direct deposit or check, whichever you prefer.
How to Apply
To start the application process, you’ll first head to the application page. Enter your email and zip code, and if Lawn Love offers service in your area, they’ll take you to the application.
The application is pretty simple, so it shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes to fill out.
First, you give them your name, a mobile phone number to reach you at, and a mailing address. Then you’ll pick where you want to provide service. If you’re in Washington, D.C., for example, you can limit your area of service to Washington, D.C., proper or choose to take additional jobs in Arlington, Virginia, and Baltimore.
Once you’ve selected the service areas you are willing to work with, you’ll be taken to the next page to discuss your work experience and eligibility. The application asks you to answer questions on work experience, fluency in English, and whether or not you have a vehicle to get to lawn care jobs.
They’ll also ask you what lawn services you can offer, from seeding to weed control to tree trimming and more.
Finally, and this is important, they’ll ask you what equipment you have. Lawn Love has requirements for the proper equipment to own to work for them. Lawn Pros must have hand tools, a weed trimmer, a mower, a leaf blower, and a truck or SUV. If you don’t have that equipment, you won’t be eligible. This makes the job tough for people looking for an odd job or side hustle — you really need to be set up as a lawn care pro to work with Lawn Love.
Provided you do have all the proper equipment and are eligible to work in the United States, Lawn Love will review and accept your application, and then it’s time to sign the independent contractor agreement and get to work.
