App Helps People Hire Lawn Services -- Mikayla Lewis

Need to mow your lawn? Do want someone else that is reliable to do the job?  There's a solution: Mowz App.

Jessica* says she wishes she had the app three weeks ago. She found a lawn care provider on Craigslist  and clicked one of many ads.

Jessica says," He seemed very nice. I couldn't find anyone else to do  it , but it was him and his dad and it seemed like a family run business It felt good."

That feeling turned bad when a rock went through her sliding glass door. She posted a warning on Craigslist about the service after they refused to replace it.

Jessica says, " Accidents happen, I wasn't mad when it happened, it's just that he refuses to take care of it. So I think that is the key, having someone you can trust that's insured."

Mowz app is launching in Nashville after success in other markets. This follows the founders app:Plowz for snow storms. Mowz creators say all providers are certified, local and insured. After filling out just a few questions, customers can request lawn services from companies like ETC Services.

ETC owner, Eric Carvotta says, " It makes it really easy for the customers because they can just go online or go through an app and order services. It makes it easier for us because  we don't have to do what we normally do on the back end. We can just go out   in the field, take care of the customers."

Mowz co-creator Wills Mahoney says, " We are finding people good providers and saving them time fishing on the internet for providers and hoping for the best."

Mowz officially launches in Nashville on Tuesday. You can download the app on Itunes or Android platforms.
