Lawn services app launches for Franklin, Greenwood residents

An app that connects homeowners with local and vetted lawn care professionals has expanded to Franklin and Greenwood.

GreenPal is an app that allows homeowners to find local and pre-screen lawn professionals to care for their yards. The Nashville, Tenn.-based app operates in over 48 states and 250 major markets, including Atlanta, Chicago, and Louisville, said Gene Caballero, the app’s co-founder.

On the app, Homeowners can list their lawns with their lawn care needs and the date of when service is needed. From there, the lawn care professionals can bid on the properties in need of work based on Google Streetview, aerial images and other details homeowners provide. Homeowners can then select who they want to work with based on the vendor’s ratings, reviews and price, according to a GreenPal news release.

Once the lawn care professional has completed the service, they will send a time-stamped photo of the completed work. Homeowners can then pay via the app and set up more appointments, the release says.

“You can start receiving quotes from local vetted professionals in less than a minute,” Caballero said.

The app is also essentially contactless, which is beneficial to homeowners right now due to the coronavirus pandemic, as the service allows vendors to bid on lawns without having to visit properties and talk face-to-face with homeowners. GreenPal also eliminates the need for customers and bidders to meet for payment, Caballero said.
