Mowz startup lets you get your lawn mowed via your smartphone

On vacation and forgot to arrange for your lawn to be mowed? Mowz has your back (depending on where you're located). The start-up has targeted the chore many of use dislike, allowing you to order lawn service from the comfort of your smartphone.

The startup, which is currently only servicing those located near Syracuse, New York, works with licensed landscapers who will be tasked with the physical job of mowing your lawn. Their services are commissioned in a way similar to how driving service Uber works.

Users download the app (available for iOS and Android) and enter their information, including a credit card for payment and the size of the lawn they want mowed. Based on the size provided and perhaps when you want it done, the service returns a quote.

The average price is $35, though it depends on the lawn's size. Once the quote is accepted, landscapers will be dispatched around the time you requested, will show up and mow your lawn, send you a picture of their work, and your card will be charged for their service.
