Transforming Lawn Care With On-Demand Mobile App

Block is a Baton Rouge-based tech startup seeking to modernize lawn care. Their mobile app lets customers book and pay for same-day lawn mowing with just a few taps. Block handles all scheduling and coordination so homeowners can outsource this tedious chore.

The Challenge

The typical homeowner spends over 10 hours per month mowing, edging, pruning, and otherwise maintaining their lawn. This frequent yard work competes for time that could be spent with family, on hobbies, or just relaxing. Scheduling recurring lawn care appointments with traditional companies is also inconvenient, requiring homeowners to coordinate around rigid service calendars and pay far in advance.

Attempting DIY lawn maintenance means sacrificing leisure and family time, along with the costs of buying equipment and learning proper yard care. Current options also lack transparency around pricing, with packages and contracts making it hard to know what you’re paying for each service.
