The Toro Company, Bloomington, Minnesota, and Plowz & Mowz, Syracuse, New York, are working together to support health care professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic by offering free lawn care appointments. With the financial support from Toro, the Plowz & Mowz Hero program allows health care workers to access free landscaping services.

Recognizing the professional and personal demands of frontline health care workers, the partnership between Toro and Plowz & Mowz was designed to help ease the additional burden of lawn and property maintenance for those who are helping keep communities across the nation safe and healthy.

Plowz & Mowz is an on-demand mobile app company that allows users to request any landscaping and snow removal service from their smartphones and provides them a quote instantly. The app’s proprietary algorithm and instant pricing pairs the homeowner with a highly rated and insured professional landscaping company. According to Plowz & Mowz co-founder Wills Mahoney, Plowz and Mowz is like Uber for lawn mowing and snow plowing, and their mission is to help people with their lawns. Plowz & Mowz is in 55 markets across the country, and they’ve connected thousands of homeowners with landscape contractors to date.

The mission of the Plowz & Mowz Hero program aligns with Toro’s culture of giving back to the communities it serves. “We’re proud to be partnering with Plowz & Mowz for this initiative during this critical time in the world,” says Greg Janey, Toro vice president of the residential and landscape contractor business. “Health care workers need our help, and if we can provide a little bit of assistance with their lawn care while they do the hard work by saving lives and serving our communities, we’re happy to play a small part. We’re thankful to Plowz & Mowz for initiating the Hero campaign and inviting us to help support them. Together we’re hoping to help frontline health care workers in any way we can.”
