For Wisconsinites, winter often means shoveling snow, and lots of it. In order to save time — along with a sore back — many homeowners and landlords opt to leave the job to professionals. However, finding a reliable snow removal service can be a chore in and of itself. Calling several companies in order to get quotes, and waiting for callbacks, can be time-consuming and frustrating.

Lawn Love, a company which allows people to book lawn care and snow removal professionals online in a matter of minutes, might be the best thing to hit Wisconsin since cheese curds. Utilizing a coded algorithm and satellite mapping tools, the website connects its users to multiple snow removal services in their area and provides them with quick and accurate estimates.

“We make it way easier to find, book, and manage a snow removal service,” said Jeremy Yamaguchi, Lawn Love CEO, who founded the company in San Diego in 2014. “(Previously), the whole experience was low-tech, very poor, and left a lot to be desired.”

Lawn Love is now operating in 120 cities, including Milwaukee, across 38 states.

To complement leaf removal, yard cleanup, gutter cleaning, gardening, lawn seeding, mowing, fertilization and other outdoor services, Lawn Love recently added the snow removal component. “We had so many customers asking for it,” Yamaguchi added. The company has partnered with 50 snow removal businesses in the Milwaukee area. Lawn Love users fill out a short form on the company’s website to receive a service estimate.

“We make the matter of getting an estimate so simple,” Yamaguchi said. “In the time it takes to fill out a form, we create a fully -structured blueprint. (The process) is ultimately more streamlined.”

Lawn Love does not require its users to sign a contract, and payment information is entered on the website so homeowners do not have to leave a check in their mailboxes. Service professionals use the Lawn Love app and send users a text when jobs are completed.

Yamaguchi contends that Lawn Love also offers a good deal of security in hiring snow removal and lawn care professionals. All companies are vetted and screened, and customers have the option of leaving up to a five-star rating based on their experiences. “Not only is the whole booking experience seamless and easy, you get a better-quality service provider,” Yamaguchi said.

He concluded that interested snow removal companies can sign up to partner with Lawn Love online.
