'Uber for lawn care' comes to Joliet

GreenPal, an app service is soon to operate in Joliet

GreenPal helps landscapers connect with homeowners to find local lawns that need any service.

GreenPal, an application service that allows homeowners to search for lawn care professionals, get free quotes on their lawn, read reviews of local lawn care services and hire whomever they want, will soon come to Joliet.

“Every year we take a look at where we need to launch next, and Joliet was one of the top 10 areas,” GreenPal co-founder Gene Caballero said.

Homeowners are able to put their lawns on the app and search for lawn care professionals. Businesses then bid on the service, and homeowners ultimately choose who does their landscaping.

Caballero said the app started in 2012 in Nashville. Since then, it has expanded to 35 cities and 22 states. He also said the app can be considered “Uber for lawn care,” because of the ability of picking and choosing the service and rating businesses.

“We help ensure lawn care professionals are paid after every service,” Caballero said.
