If so, San Diego-based Lawn Love, which first launched here in April of 2014, seeks to profit handsomely. The company is attacking the historically low-tech $78-billion landscaping services industry with modern tools — think: mobile apps and fancy algorithms — that make it easier for people to book and pay for yard work, while simultaneously helping technicians manage administrative chores such as billing and scheduling.
Lawn Love, a Y Combinator-backed startup that provides customers with an easy way to get their lawn serviced, offering mowing, fertilization, aeration, seeding, and yard cleanup, announced today that it raised 1.9M in seed funding.
Lawn Love is a new startup launching out of the Summer 2014 batch of Y Combinator that aims to add a layer of tech-enabled ease to the process of finding, booking, and paying a landscaping or lawn care provider.
In 2009 I founded another on-demand home services business. Think Homejoy or Handy, just three years earlier and 100% bootstrapped. We were ranked #5 on the San Diego Business Journal's FAST100 list in 2013. Acquired the same year. I have extensive experience growing a lean, capital efficient business in a very similar space.
