#Lawnguru is like Uber for your Lawn… Use my code “sylviarox5” for $5 discount #MotownMom (ad) www.lawnguru.co For more details, view here

Being a single mom in the city, it’s really hard to have a dependable person to cut your lawn, when you want it cut.

Now that my son is not around as much, it’s even more difficult and I can’t trust everyone to come out and do a good job.

So when I found the LawnGuru services through Amazon home and business services I was in like Flynn… (I actually don’t know what that means), but I was in love.

I downloaded the Lawnguru app from my Google Play services (because Androids rule) and then I added my property and a credit card. It was really simple. Since my lawn grows when it wants to, I wasn’t locked into a contract. I could step up a one time use when I wanted and then I requested service.

It really feels like Uber for lawn care because depending on the weather and my bank account, I can’t always cut the lawn.

Having this service assures me I can get the lawn cut when I need it cut and keeping my property looking good.

P.S. They also do snow removal also

I highly recommend this service and please use my code “sylviarox5” for $5’s off your next service.

For first time users, you can get $15 off your first request “OwkUnuxZIE”
