Amazon’s New Service Lets You Hire Goats To Mow Your Lawn

Do you have a big yard but don’t feel like mowing it yourself? Amazon Home Services has the ideal answer for you: Just hire a bunch of goats to come in and graze your grass down to respectable levels.

The new service asks for your zip code and then pairs you up with someone who will bring the goats in and take care of that pesky grass problem for you.

From the description, below is what happens with the service:

Once a pro has met with you to determine if unleashing some friendly goats on your property will help you get rid of any unwanted vegetation, you’ll receive a recommendation for how many goats will be loaned to you, how long those goats will keep you company, and how often a pro will come check on them to make sure they’re not attempting any fancy tricks to break free from the temporary fencing that will be placed around them. As they graze, they will likely leave behind some droppings, too, and you’ll get to keep this fertilizer as a friendly parting gift!

Also, if you are curious as to what goats eat, never fear. Amazon Home Services also has the answer to that question as well:

Goats can eat tons of stuff! They’re curious little creatures that like to at least taste almost anything resembling a plant. They actually love to munch away at many types of vegetation that we find invasive, ugly, or harmful to humans. Goats can eat thistle, blackberry, English Ivy, kudzu, poison ivy, poison sumac, poison oak, wisteria, various grasses, and more. Your pro will be able to let you know for sure if the type of vegetation you want to get rid of happens to be on the goat’s menu.

TELL US: Are you ready to ditch the mechanical mower and let goats graze on your property?
