Mow Your Lawn Stress Free Using the GreenPal App: The Uber for Lawn Mowing
This app is the brainchild of Bryan Clayton, who is the CEO of GreenPal. Clayton best describes his company as the “Uber of lawn care”, he founded this company after having worked in the lawn care industry for over 15 years during which he acquired a lot of experience. This is how Clayton best describes how his “Uber lawn care”app helps the homeowners, “You’d have to call around and leave a bunch of voicemails… It may take you a week or so to get quotes and how do you know you are actually getting the best price and the best quality in the marketplace? You really don’t. You are kind of taking a leap of faith”.
Thus a homeowner can easily hire a lawn care service and pay for it via the app. When the vendor has completed mowing the lawn, the lawn care company will then upload a picture of the finished lawn. Then the homeowner can then rate his experience with that particular vendor through GreenPal, and enjoy a 5% transaction cut.
Having worked as a lawn mower himself since the age of 12, Clayton understands very well the plight of lawn mowers. He says, “I saw all the things that are broken with lawn care… Lawn care guys need help. They are hardworking guys, but they don’t have time to do the marketing and effectively do the bookkeeping and consumer outreach.” Sometimes the lawn mowers companies have to waste gas and time while driving to faraway neighborhoods, while they could be scheduling new works within the same area. Just because they are unaware of the opportunity within their proximity, but with GreenPal this would be a thing of the past.
GreenPal also takes some security measures to ensure homeowners’ safety: they run background checks on the lawn service providers on any criminal activities, ensure they got proper equipments, talk to their previous customers and meet up with them person. They also avail to potential customers, the individual vendor’s past works and ratings given by past customers.
