Lawn Love uses local contractors like Albert Milam of iHandy2You to get your yard work done.

Milam said working with Lawn Love has been a huge boost to his business.

“It enables these independent pros to compete and thrive and gives them the toolsets that they need to actually to win and to survive,” Yamaguchi said.

Yamaguchi said all independent yard service professionals go through an extensive vetting process including interviews and lawn care tests.

“It’s essentially a five or six step screening and onboarding process,” Yamaguchi said. “And between 5 and 10 percent depending on the market of people who apply to work on the platform actually make it.”
