The older people get, odds are they aren't hoping for snow. A wintery storm used to be a sure-fire way to get out of school. Now it means scraping ice off your car, leaving the faucet dripping, and perhaps worst of all-- plowing your driveway and walkways.

The creators behind Lawncare Unlimited developed Plowz and Mowz (iOS, Android) to help you with just that.

On top of year-round yard maintenance, the Plowz and Mowz team can come out and clear the snow.

To get a quote from the company, open the app and either log in or tap Get My Price. Simply select whether you want Lawn & Landscaping, Snow Removal, or Exterior Services. The app will ask where you need the service and request your email.

If you request a job on your desktop browser, you'll enter your address and email, select the width and length of your driveway, and how many inches of snow you have.

The app works at your convenience. Once you pick the day you need the service, the team will show up, send updates and a photo of the completed work so you don't come home to any unhappy surprises.

"Our fleet of five-star contractors can take care of almost anything between your driveway and your door," the app's description said. "Ordering is fast, easy, and efficient, so you'll never have to haggle with a contractor again."

Plowz and Mowz will push the job back a day in the event of rain in the regular season. Providers will continue working through snow, but there might be delays or travel restrictions. The company will contact you in the event of any delays.
