An online platform known as "Lawn Love" could speed transactions between landscape businesses and their customers. The software requires customers to provide information about their yard, then generates an estimate and refers them to a list of lawn care service providers. Lawn Love, which gets a commission for each job, also provides insurance and payment processing services for both parties. "Many lawn care professionals will tell you that there's no possible way they can create an estimate without seeing a lawn. Us being able to intelligently provide a quote, sight unseen, is a nontrivial advancement," said founder Jeremy Yamaguchi.
